Not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.
I first enjoyed the Poinsettia in college, when a dear friend took me to a fine restaurant as a gift. We decided that she ought to have a December wedding, when everything could be red berries and diamonds, and we would toast her blessings with that cocktail. She is yet unmarried. I was the one who had the December wedding, though no champagne was involved. Instead, my wife and I shared our favorite Moscato with our guests.Now I'd like very much to sip that drink again. Thanks, Julie, for the memory.
I love that story ... :-)
