Celebrate the New Year in style with a Champagne bar, or Bubbly bar as I like to call it. My NYE will be a bit “low-key” so we (those 21 and up 😉 ) will be sipping Veuve (my fav) straight up, no chaser. But, if I was going to throw a soire, and I just may in the not so distant future, I will do my own bubbly bar. Using my bar cart, of course.
No matter what the question, champagne is the answer! <3 >3 <3
INGREDIENTS TO SET OUT: sparkling wine, sparkling water ,fresh berries like raspberries, strawberries, and cranberries, fresh squeezed juice like grapefruit, cranberry, orange, and/or watermelon. lemon twists, sugar cubes and whatever else your heart desires!

Champagne ice cubes…but I caution against using champagne from TJ’s, in your glass of Veuve.
Murphy Pic of the Day – bear with me, as I may still keep feathering in pics of sweet Murph in my upcoming blogs. #lovethemurph #mysweetgirl
As difficult and painful as this week has been, after the passing of our beloved Murphy, the love and kindness of family and friends has lessened our pain and warmed our hearts. I received this picture the other night from the woman who rescued Murph, and placed her with her/our Pop in 2007. This is Murph and her “companion” Charlie, whom Mary helped nursed both back to health, from near death, due to abuse and neglect. Murphy is on the right…The gal with the fabulous ears. <3 <3 <3
