Cheers to 31!!!

So I'm not really one to get on here and say "Yay Happy Birthday To Me"~ But, I guess what I'm trying to say is "Happy Birthday to me". Honestly though, it's truthfully just a segway to talk about alcohol! I'm not an avid drinker, but I do like to partake every now and then. The occasional margarita, beer (only if a kind I like), wine spritzer, and most of all, "girly" fruity drinks! And if it comes an umbrella in it, even better! Well, last year at my sister in law's wedding, a close friend of the family decided I needed a drink, and something yummy. So she introduced me to a new friend~ the mimosa!! Yes, I know it's kind of sad that I went 30 years w/o one, but alas, I did. Well, it was love at first sip. So simple, so delicious and I love orange juice, so why not?? But here's my secret- I'm not a fan of champagne! So much so I only took 2 sips at our wedding for the sake of a toast and a great photo opportunity! But put it w/ some juice and I'll keep coming back for more! I've been very blessed in my 31 years. I've had a successful career, married the man I love and adore, had a beautiful son who amazes me more and more every day, and have gotten to make him my main priority every day, and now find fulfillment and joy in something I love doing and sharing w/ all of you! I can only wish 31 treats me just as well.   If someone else out there is having a birthday today too, I hope you get to "cheers" yourself  and have a blessed, fantastic day!

1/2 c. champagne
1/2 c. orange juice
Strawberries for garnish

Mix and chill well. Garnish glasses w/ strawberries, or even add to for extra flavor.
*As long as you use equal parts juice and champagne, these are easily adaptable to a crowd!
