A Love Letter To Wine


Dear Wine,

I know I tell you this a lot, but I love you. I wanted to take a (sober) moment to let you know why you are so important to me. I know there are a lot of other girls out there who love you and tell you all of the time but I need you to know that I love you the most.

I love the way you make me feel when I’m having a horrible day. Knowing that I can come home from class and pop your cork if comforting. You never judge me for having too much or drunk calling my parents and asking for money. Speaking of, they told me that I should probably break up with you but we both know I’d never do that. They just don’t understand. Honestly, I feel sorry that they’ve never known a love like mine.

I love the different colors you come in and how it looks good no matter what. I will admit, I am a bit biased towards your lighter colors but that doesn’t mean I don’t like you in red. Some days I’m in the mood for some white and sometimes I need a little red in my life. Just know that whichever color you wear that day, I think you look amazing.

Thank you for giving me the courage to wear a pair of heels to the bar, even though I fell down coming out of the bar. I know it wasn’t your fault. You just make me go weak in the knees. Really, it’s a compliment to you if anything. Plus, the cute guy on the other side of the bar never would have looked my way had I not been wearing heels. They made my ass pop and I have you to thank for that. You really made that night worthwhile.

I know sometimes it might seem like I don’t appreciate you enough or take you for granted, but it’s not true. That’s why I’m writing this to you. I’m telling you all of this because you deserve to know. You also deserve to know that I will never cheat on you. I know last week I flirted with tequila and the limes but that was a mistake. Everyone else was flirting with them and I didn’t want to feel left out but I know it was wrong. Tequila was mean to me the next morning anyway. I’ve learned my lesson, don’t worry.

Thank you for giving me endless amounts of confidence, even if it was drunk confidence. Thank you for always sticking by my side and never deserting me. Thank you for just being you. Never change because I love you just the way you are.

Your Devoted Sorority Wino

P.S. I lied. I did have a glass of wine while writing this. Forgive me.
