jose_claudia_and_familyAnother year has gone by – we truly hope it was a good year for you and hope the next one will be even better! We couldn’t think of a better way to start the new year than celebrating the end of the old one! Whether it will be a quiet dinner with friends, a relaxing evening with your sweetie, or a fun party, we hope you find exactly the right way to say farewell to 2015 and welcome 2016.

Cheers, and here’s to a happy, healthy and successful new year!!

xoxo Claudia
