Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For all those cutting back on libation as some kind of "resolution" in 2014; I did that last year.

In fact, having usually drank a bottle of wine daily (over several hours and with plentiful food, seeing as I do eat more than anyone I've ever met) last year I decided that I wanted to see if I could drink less, and indeed I could.

(For which I am grateful, as it did teach me that my "wine love" is a habit, and a passion, albeit not an addiction). Cheers to that!

And so, last year, for the first time ever, I actually logged my wine consumption and really wrote it down!

Today, I tallied those numbers up and see that in 2013 I drank 172.25 bottles of wine and four beers.

Interesting stuff, right? And so that was considerably less than my norm and it can be done!

This year, I am NOT counting drinks, but enjoying things in healthful allotments and whenever the menu and mood dictates.

I DID however, have one fabulous crush on the purple "COUNT" from Sesame Street at one time - speaking of counting. You know the one? (The guy who chants, "One, two, three, THREE MAGNIFICENT BATS! Bah ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa")!

I even dressed as him one Halloween!

ANYWAY, let it never be said that I didn't chime in with some New Year's energy and smiles for all!

Happy 2014, and to whatever you're drinking, smoking, counting, and enjoying!!!!!!! Cheers! - Leah is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
