If you are careful, and stay inside the lines, you will color a pretty picture. That is what my Mom used to tell me when I was a kid. Straying outside the lines used to mean you were sloppy and lacked coloring skills. Now, as a grown up, coloring outside the lines has become a metaphor for creativity, innovation and making new discoveries.
I took my sloppy coloring skills to the SWFE at the end of February and had a blast. This was my first year attending and I can say with confidence that I will be back again next year. The event was a delight for all your senses and I put mine to the test sampling food and wine pairings that attempted to break out of the “that’s the way we always do it” mold.
