Veuve Clicquot to me always means a celebration is taking place or about to take place. That in my mind, can mean just celebrating the day. Yesterday we celebrated our dear friend Jane Dagmi and her turning 50. It was a lovely way to kick-off the start of this trip. It is a champagne that many of you know holds a very special place in my heart. Over the years, we have shared bottles of it with so many friends for so many occasions. We have a big vintage bowl that we have saved all the corks from the bottles over the years–it is a fun reminder of all the lovely times shared. A new bowl has begun at Hawthorne, ready to be filled with memories.
