Labor Day weekend, we dropped Big Bub off at the grandparents' and met up with my cousin and two best friends from high school. There's no better way to enjoy the change of season, colorful foliage, and brisk, fall air than with a glass of wine, at a winery, in the middle of a vineyard, on the North Fork of Long Island.

Along the way, we passed through Jamesport, a town my senior high school prom party spent the weekend after the big night. We also drove past a sign for Elbow Room East, a restaurant we celebrated in. It got me thinking about the teenage me, Glamagirl, and I pondered what she would have thought if she was told on prom weekend that 15 years in the future she would be driving through the same town to meet her same best friends for an afternoon at the vineyards. That she was married with a big, beautiful baby boy and an affectionate Mapu. That she lived in Manhattan and wrote a blog about her experiences.

Other than asking, What the hell is a blog?! I'd like to think Glamagirl would be elated and full of anticipation. Most of all, I believe she'd be thankful to know that she still has the same amazing people in her life and some new ones too.

There are a few big name wineries but my favorites are the more intimate like Croteaux, Lenz, The Old Field, and Sparking Pointe.

We capped off the day with an early dinner at VINe in Greenport. The food is out of this world! Cheers to Executive Chef, Steven Lewis.
