So the last day of the year is here!!! Time to pop open some bubbly and toast to best moments of 2015 and everything that is to come in 2016. Another year of possibilities and opportunities. There is no more positive moment than January 1st! It can seem intimidating if you get too caught up on resolutions. I’m not a big fan of those. I’m more of a “start right away” and less of a “star next year” or “start on Monday” kinda gal. It just takes all the worry, anxiety and anticipation away from anything. And my other advice? It’s all about taking it one day at a time!
So… ahead of tomorrow’s celebrations, I’ve rounded up three libations featuring Rosé Champagne, courtesy of Mumm Brut Rosé.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
