Behind the scenes: For your enjoyment only

As we appear to be on the eve of publishing, or something like that, I thought I’d give our readers – oh, you precious, wonderful beings! – a glimpse into the inner workings of Must. Have. Wine.  It’s fantastic, really.  Just as two businessmen on the 70th floor of a floor-to-ceiling-windows, leather-draped executive office would be; we are. We conduct business. Serious business about motherhood and wine. And all you mamas out there know -the two subjects are no laughing matter!  And just like those two Donald Trump wannabes, the “little people” are always storming in our office, asking things of us, wanting…needing. Except our little people, are truly little. people.  We hold meetings in the company of crying babies, clingy toddlers and persistent preschoolers.  This is the case, unless….unless…we are working, as we so often do, in the precious, quiet wee hours of the morning when the kiddos are still in bed, or after they’ve surrendered to blissful sleep at night.

We pour that glass of wine.

But, for your reading pleasure, I’ve recorded an excerpt of one of our last meetings held sometime right after I got off of my day job, right before my crock pot was going to ding the commencement of dinnertime.

Here goes…

Katrina: I’m looking at our agenda and I think we need to concentrate on marketing for the next couple of days.  Did you get the media list together?

Leah: I did. I was working on it a few weeks ago and I’ve almost completed it.  I was so exhausted last night, I fell asleep right after Parenthood!  I just need to get a few more names.

Katrina: You want some more juice?

Leah: Did I call Bruce?

Katrina: No, I’m sorry.  Go ask your daddy.

Leah: Okay, so once I complete the list. I’ll finish the last story for the next book and send it over to you to review. What? I just did. It’s sitting right there. Right there. No, not unless you say please. Sorry!

Katrina: No, that’s fine. Ha!  I know!  Well, that sounds great.  I really am so excited about getting started on the marketing for Must. Have. Wine.  Did you have a chance to look at the changes on our website?

Leah: I did. I really love our new logo!  LOVE! Amber is so awesome!  Can you believe how great it looks on a bumper sticker. We’ll need to get it printed on — If you push your brother ONE MORE TIME, you’re going to time out.  ONE! TWO!  Sorry. What was I saying?

Katrina: You were talking about what awesome things we can get our logo printed on.

Leah: Yeah, the options are endless!  Did you get my e-mail about the LLC documents.  Sorry it took – GET OFF OF YOUR BROTHER NOW!

Katrina: >giggle<

Leah: Ugh! Okay, yes, I’m going to get them notarized tomorrow. Sorry it’s taken me so long.  I want to do it on a day Luke is in preschool so I only have to handle one wild man at the bank.

Katrina: Yeah, no, that’s cool.

Leah: Did you get a chance to respond to that request for a …

Katrina: Give me five more minutes. Five more. Shut the door. Go find daddy! I’m here. I’m listening.

Leah: Did you get a chance to respond to that request for the Twitter wine tasting?  Sounds fun!

Katrina: It does. Why don’t you do this one. I’ll do the next! One more minute please!

Leah: Okay, if you’re sure!  It’ll be great to get involved. What’s the matter? Your brother did what?  Luke! Trina, I’ll call you back!  Is it 5 yet???!!!

So there you have it…behind the scenes of Must. Have. Wine. in all its authentic glory!

***Stay tuned for our big announcement of Must. Have. Wine. A Toast to Motherhood!***

Cheers to Katrina and I for surviving almost two years of insane business meetings, but all the hard work and as we like to say, “blood, sweat and tears” has brought us to a very satisfying point.  I love you girl…BUCKLE UP FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE!
