Anne Nisbet, her husband Mark Cooley and their adorable,
hunk of a pup Wilson.
Anne and I met when I debuted at the Wine Commission way
back in 1997. Anne is an event
planner/facilitator extraordinaire. She
is the Culinary Director to IPNC (International Pinot Noir Celebration: http://www.ipnc.org/
) and owner of the Cookie
). She knows how to juggle a lot, and well! Her background is impressive to say the least
and I’ve appreciated being witness to her professional trail blazing. Mark and Wilson are the two men in her life
that while I don’t know very well, I adore.
On a recent field trip to their home to collect their generous penny
collection, Mark had his beautiful homemade cheeses ripening on various
counters. I would turn into a wheel of
cheese if I had that kind of gourmet distraction within reach. I hope Malcolm isn’t reading this, but I must
proclaim my crush on Wilson. Big
time. Wilson is 160 lbs. of drooling,
mush face, love. I know he didn’t have
anything to do with their lovely penny donation but he’s so cute I had to give
him a shout out.
