Any reason to celebrate.

Today is National Champagne Day! At least that what some of the Google search results tell me. But it could also be on December 31st, or October 22, or some other day in May. No matter. As long as there is an excuse to make a toast with bubbly, I’m in.

Today I am toasting to a big step forward in the remodel project of our hall bath. I started tearing out the 1980s-era terracotta floor tile in November of 2019. We drug out the ginormous cultured marble countertops and wall-sized mirror. New countertops, sinks, faucets and wall paint went up in early 2020. Then COVID happened, which slowed things down quite a bit. Monte put new face frames on the cabinets and painted them, and they look fantastic. But the bare slab floor hung with us for over a year.

As of today, I’m loving the new floor tile and backsplash. Next up: new baseboards.

Celebrate the little things. And keep moving on.

Bubbly and pinochle. 

Happy Champagne Day!!  My calendar tags August 4th every year for this bubbly celebration.  Google also lists various other champagne-related days in October and December.  I, for one, will celebrate them all!

We sipped as we played a few rounds of pinochle with these nifty vintage cards – found in the time capsule. 

  
Cheers!

Do you know what day it is?

Happy Champagne Day!!!!! Cheers! Well, National champagne day, that is. If you happen to miss this one you can catch international champagne day or global champagne day later this year. Heck, any day will do! Get out there and celebrate!
