Stepped inside a fairytale, a 10 year old medieval castle made of breathtaking stonework…filled with colorful medieval frescoes depicting age of old–kings, knights, noble crests.
I was imaginitively raptured to a century where lords and ladies sat around a table and drank their wine from goblets while drinking in the melodies of minstrels–the setting of a monarch’s dinner after an entertaining joust on the castle grounds while the sun was still in the air.
This was the setting of my 21st birthday–but rather than goblets, I drank from a wine glass that put the potent liquid on display. Rather than a joust, I went on a wine tour and heard the more brief history of the castle, only a decade, not a century old but the spirit of the Arthurian age about it.
With the notes of 24 different wines warming my throat, from dry to deliciously, sinfully sweet, I was in a dreamland, and it’s not just the wine talking!
I practically spun around and frolicked in my black cotton dress–in the dining hall and exterior alike. The grandiose skirt was perfect for twirling, pretending to dance at a castle soirée. Maybe for my land of make believe I was underdressed, or wrongly dressed century-wise, but the bows on my sleeves and red lipstick did fancy it up a bit!
So I walked and swayed in my ensemble and the perfect pair of shoes: brown leather Fendi’s. While they may have not been the most comfortable, they did complete the outfit and make me feel like a princess!
