Happy Holidays!

merry christmas

A belated Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you, dear readers. We’re currently en route back from a weeklong holiday vacay with the fam in Texas. It was restful and fantastic and really great to unplug for the week. I hope you all have had a fabulous holiday vacation and are gearing up for New Year’s. What a wonderful year it’s been, I feel very lucky and grateful. Here’s to taking some time to celebrate the year and ring in the next.

What I’m Drinking: 

Lots and lots of bubbly! ‘Tis the season, right? I’m digging pink bubbles at the moment so I’ve got my heart set on a delicious Languedoc pink sparkler that I recently sipped with my friend Anna in NYC- a NV Paul de Coste Brut Rosé. The Languedoc always makes me happy, it’s fresh and minty- full of that great garrigue herbiness and zesty- just right for a New Year’s celebration. The Langedoc is a bit of an unsung hero, I’ve never been disappointed by it and it’s tres affordable. Pink bubbles from the Languedoc= divine. I love this Austrian bubbly too, inexpensive and really good. Those Austrians rarely disappoint when it comes to their vino.

A Few Things:

Great interview with the legendary Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

A New Year’s réveillon? Anything that is defined as a long meal with lots of bubbly and good conversation is something I’m down for. I like it.

What a pretty and colorful holiday table! I love the pomegranate seeds and brie!

Serena & Lily‘s 70%-off sale is on yo.
