Good bye 2012, Welcome 2013 – Champagne Mojitos

Champagne Mojitos

Good bye 2012, Welcome 2013. For me, the last year has gone by in a whirl wind. I was able to make a lot of new experiences, meet inspiring people, make fantastic travels, work on my photography and play around in the kitchen. As exciting the last year has been for me, both in my day job as well as through my photographic and kitchen adventures, I am excited what 2013 has in stock for me.

Before we move on to a new year, I would like to raise my glass of Champagne Mojito and give a toast to you as my viewers and readers. Thank you for taking the time and stopping by here at Strudel & Cream. I hope your last year has been as exciting as mine and I wish you all the best for 2013. May you be able to successfully work towards your goals, dreams and wishes.

Have a happy new year and all the best for 2013!
Einen guten Rutsch und alles Gute für 2013!

  2. Schaut sensationell aus! Ob die zusätzlichen Ingredienzien im Champagner den Kater wohl verhindert hätten?

    Euch beiden ein frohes neues Jahr!
