The rules are easy:

I chose "savor" as my focus word for 2013, and it has been brought to my attention that there are people in this world who don't know how to properly savor their wine. While there are many ways to go about this, I thought I would share, step by step, the best way to savor a glass of wine.

Step #1: Buy a bottle of wine you know that you enjoy. (The rest of this is a moot point if you try something new that flops)

Step #2: Come home and turn on your favorite relaxing music. (Ingrid Michaelson, and Leaona Naess are both good choices.)

Step #3: Ensure that your bathtub is clean. (It's best if this is done ahead of time, and preferably by someone other than yourself.)

Step #4: Run a hot bath while you pour your first glass and enjoy a few of your favorite chocolates. (If you are drinking white, you can always have fruit if you prefer.)

Step #5: Gather some relaxing bath additives (bubbles, salts, or oils) your after-bath lotions, your favorite candle, and a good book.

Step #6: Ensure that your book, glass of wine (& bottle for refills), and towel are within reach of the tub.

Step #7: Light candle, bring music into the bathroom & settle into your hot bath.

Step #8: Sip wine at a relaxing pace and enjoy book or cat nap. Continue until water is cold or fingers are pruny.

Once you've thoroughly savored your wine I recommend a good nap. Of course if the bottle is not empty you can always grab a few more chocolates and set yourself up in front of a good chic flick.

I thought maybe I'd make it easy for some of you to try and follow these directions at home by giving away a candle from Rewined Candles. I love them. My favorite scents are the Pinot Noir, Champagne & Spiked Apple Cider.
