{Happy & Healthy New Year 2015}

Wishing you all, the world over, a Happy & Healthy New Year 2015!
Be it Champagne or in our case, an Italian Prosecco, Champagne's sexy Italian cousin; CHEERS to Good Health and Happiness!
For all my Greek readers:  Ευτυχισμένος ο Νέος Χρόνος! Happy New Year! ←click it for learning from Marie-Anne, more about the Greek day for Gift Giving on Saint Basil's Day on January 1, like Saint Nicholas on December 6, or Santa Claus on December 25.

  7. Lieve Mariette,

    Dat er voor jullie beiden net zoveel of het liefste nog meer sprankelende momentjes van geluk en gezondheid mogen zitten in 2015 dan in je mooie glazen met lekkere Prosecco!!!

    Wij gaan het nieuwe jaar in met een Cava demi-sec.

    Dankjewel voor je altijd lieve woorden en reacties op mijn blog,volgens mij heb jij een heel archief van bijzondere dagen met namen daarbij.

    Fijne jaarwisseling en op naar een mooi nieuw blogjaar.

    Liefs,Ger

      Wij hadden een verrukkelijk Italiaans diner op Oudejaar in het restaurant hier van onze vrienden uit Italië en Oostenrijk.
      Als ik een blog bij iemand bezoek dan léés ik ook Ger, vandaar bepaalde herinneringen...

    vielen lieben Dank noch für deine Glückwünsche zum Geburtstag und zu den Neujahrswünschen!
    Ich wünsche dir auch ein ganz tolles und insbesondere gesundes 2015!
    Habe jetzt noch deinen Kommentar zu Warnemünde entdeckt - mein Vater lebt ja nicht dort (er ist allerdings in Rostock geboren) - er lebt 8 Monate des Jahres in Afrika und die restlichen 4 Monate in Berlin (gut, das ist ja schon nah dran an Hamburg) - allerdings ist er in den 4 Monaten Deutschland auch stets mit seiner Frau auf Reisen, so dass wir uns jetzt meist nur 1 x pro Jahr sehen.
    Ich wünsch dir einen schönen Jahresbeginn, liebe Grüße von Ann

      Ja, damit wird es schwierig um einander zu treffen wenn dein Vater mal in Deutschland ist... Seine Frau sollte aber grosszügig sein um ihm Zeit mit eigener Kinder verbringen zu lassen.
      Alles gute und vor allem gesundes für die ganze Familie!

  31. So edel, das Tablett, liebe Mariette! Wir haben mit Champagner angestoßen, sogar Mutti :-) Sie durfte aber nur eine Kleinigkeit. Doch erstaunlich, wie gut sie sich wieder erholt hat und daß sie so lange aufbleiben konnte! :-)
    Vielleicht kannst Du mir noch verraten, wo genau "Back to roots" noch erscheint. Das wäre lieb!
