Happy Champagne Day

Ya’ll know I never need an excuse to open up a bottle of bubbly.

Happy Champagne Day

So go pop a bottle of something bubbly and delicious. And in honor of the folks who created this magical beverage, please do try to make sure it’s from the Champagne region of France. If you’re unsure what that means check out the primer from earlier this week — What is Champagne.

And when you’re done, join me in celebrating my favorite beverage on the planet!
