Happy New Year!! It is now 2013 and we can leave the dregs of 2012 behind and build on the blessing we have received on 2012. Don’t forget some resolutions– there will be a lot more about “New Year, New You, New Perspective”. If that sounds different- it is because there are changes coming from me as a blogger & social media expert, from the people I work with and within me personally. So as the shift occurs in this blog, roll with it- because this is a year that will change a life- yours, mine and others. The more that the lives of others change, the more yours (and mine will change) and vice versa. It’s a great experience. Just roll with it and let’s celebrate the endless possibilities that we can achieve in 2013.
Time to get into the party spirit and I managed to wrangle a series of cocktails courtesy of Grey Goose!
Lots of yummy things and if you don’t have ALL the Grey Goose flavors, you might want to make a trip to your local supermarket — where most are doing a 30% off the member price if you buy six bottles. Not saying buy all Grey Goose but heck.. you would certainly be prepared for vodka based drinks and also cooking with vodka.
