Tree of Love champagne flutes, esty seller: daydreemdesigns
- Dom Perignon a Benedictine monk at the Abbey of Hautvillers invented champagne.
- The pressure in a bottle of champagne is 90 pounds per square inch about three times that in an automobile tire.
- The famous Marilyn Monroe is said to have taken a bath in bubbly. It took 350 bottles to fill the tub.
- You should let champagne sit for a couple of minutes after pouring it because it intensifies the aroma and taste.

Soon it will be my 35th Birthday! I’d like to celebrate and start the new year off with a day of relaxation at one of my favorite places, The Carneros Inn in Napa. I have arranged a private yoga session, followed by lunch... om, yum! The morning yoga session will balance us for the day (and for the new year to come). Following yoga, we will have lunch together and partake in something sorta-like a sister circle (more details to come; there will be an assignment :)
But it doesn't end there… after lunch, you can further indulge in other spa services. The Spa has set aside a block of time for our group, and they will require each guest in our group to schedule a minimum of a 60 minute service. I have also reserved a suite for us that will serve as our base for the day… so you can come and go as you please. Once we’ve all wrapped up our afternoon activities, the plan is that we will regroup in the suite to chit chat a bit and reflect on our day.

The Dreamer Flannel Pajama, Victoria's Secret
Bedhead Kaleidoscope Print Pajamas, Neiman Marcus
Athletic Sleepshirt Victoria's Secret
Sidenote: I know some people sleep in the buff but that is not always appropriate...say when Uncle Lou is visiting or the company conference where you have to share a room with the new HR Director.
Extra Idea: Let this be the one gift you open before Christmas so all your family members can wear their new pajamas while opening presents Christmas morning.

Love of my Life Beautiful rhinestone art deco brooch, www.etsy.com: Seller 2007 Musarra, $62.99
- The earliest known brooches are from the Bronze Age.
- Brooches were first worn in one's hair.
When purchasing a brooch, think about how the giftee will wear it (i.e. on their cardigan, in their hair, hooked onto a belt loop, etc). Also, think about a favorite item the giftee enjoys, for example does she have a favorite flower, a love of a certain type of animal or simply appreciates a little bling? This will help you to pick out the perfect brooch.
