Fun Friday riding on the wagon

I’m sorry to disappoint you all but I have not had an alcoholic drink in over 6 days!!!

I know it’s hard to believe but it’s true.

I Angie, lover of wine, beer and spirits have not enjoyed a glass of hooch for almost a full week!

I have had no desire for my daily intoxicant…and I’m not missing it at all

yet 😀

So I thought I’d post one of my favorite drinks SANGRIA without the alcohol…
