One of the things I most agreed with in the book French Women Don't Get Fat was the author Mireille Guiliano's point of view on Champagne. She believes that Champagne, or any sparkling wine really, is something that should be enjoyed every day and for all occasions. The notion that bubbly only be sipped on a special occasion seems somewhat old-fashioned. If I drink red and white wine whenever I feel like it, why not imbibe sparklers in the same manner? How do you feel about it?
My jaw drops every time a peer tells me that their parent called to remind them that they missed their birthday or anniversary. Most people I know try to be mindful of important family dates and celebrate accordingly with a card, call, visit, or gift, but it always stuns me when moms or dads expect it. As a parent, I had my kids without anticipating any kind of payback ever. Do you care if your children keep tabs on your occasions?Source
