I’m back…with some rosé and wry.

Hey, so, yeah…it’s been a while since I’ve been here. How are you? I’ve changed the name of my blog, in case you hadn’t noticed, or wondered why you are getting something from “rosé and wry” not “Vinegar and Vanilla”. It seemed like the right thing to do, a little refresh on the old blog. […]
