A Tasty Definition of Self-Care

On a Sunday evening, there's nothing I love more than unwinding with some self-care that comes in the form of a great glass of red wine and a treat. The other night, we really picked some good ones.

Wine of choice? RedTree Cabernet Sauvignon. This 2013 cab out of California has a lighter body than a typical Cabernet, with a delectable silky smoothness that almost coats the inside of your mouth (in the best way possibly). This wine is bursting with fruit and raspberry flavors, making it something that's easy to drink and pair well with great conversation (or a Netflix binge) as well as the pasty we paired on this fine evening.

Treat of choice? This, to die for, NUTELLA RASPBERRY croissant from Colossal Cafe in St. Paul, Minnesota. I have no words for how delicious this thing is (okay, maybe a few, but words really don't do it justice). This perfect flakey croissant literally oozes with Nutella and fresh raspberries, and also includes a delightful crunch from the simple glaze on top.

Needless to say, for a raspberry infatuated person like myself, these were two great life choices made over the weekend and we're looking forward to next time.
