One of the many higlights of our trip in southern France in August, were of course when we bloggers got to make a toast in real life with the gigglewater we had been pretending to drink together at our cyber cruise parties during the three years we’ve been blogging together.

The missing faces in this photo are behind their cameras: Mr Lifecruiser, Diane and Anna. This had to be well documented – almost as a historic happening…. lol

No wonder the happy faces and giggling, it’s not every day you get to drink with such good friends and the very best Champagne brand there is!

.. only problem was that they only had one bottle in the store, so we really had to share the drops verrrrrry carefully… *giggles*

Today we have another reason to make a bloggers toast, so I’ll fill up the glasses for you all and hope that you’ll follow me in this toast!

A toast for Renny, who’s birthday is today and is planning another blog gathering next year in August in Oslo, Norway.

Hop over and congratulate him and see what he wishes as a birthday gift – it’s something very special!

    What a blast we had sharing the wonderful Dom Perignon.

    And it’s true, it was the last 1999 vintage they had, and I had to wait 20 minutes to find a helpful hand in the hypermarket to help me. But it was worth every second of waiting and sharing with wonderful blog friends.

    And happy BD to RennyBA of course

    What a nice picture of all of you ! Since I don’t touch alcohol anymore, since 4 years, I discovered a very good “Champagne” without alcohol and it’s very well drinkable !! so now when I am invited somewhere I take my bottle with me, so I don’t have to drink water all the time. People who tried it found it also very good !
