10 Ways to Toast in Twenty 13

january 003

In every language there is some word(s) to ‘toast to your good health’ when raising a glass to friends and family.

Because this week I am focusing on one of LIFE’S simple pleasures: beverages, I thought I would find ways to say here’s to you.  (Maybe impress your friends the next time you are put in the spotlight to make a toast)

I don’t have the languages listed…. you can look them up on Google if you want to check on my research:

1. Cheers   2.  Saude   3.  A votre sante  4.  nien nien  5.  Prost        6.  skal   7.  L’Chiam   8.  Salute  9.  salud    10. Bottoms up

As I sit here writing my post, it’s 13 wonderful sunny degrees out and I’m sipping some very special  Salted Caramel Chai Tea Latte Mix.  One of my beverages for today.  A simple pleasure, hot drink on a cold day!

One thing you will see me explore each week is a new verb.

This week, I am trying to find in my LIFE ways to ‘lighten’….. how ironic that a few weeks ago I collaged the above, BeLieve which the header is a definition I found for the intransitive verb lighten: means to shine brightly!

Brighten Someone’s day, lighten someone’s load! CHEERS
