This is how we started 20013... and how we have started every year for over 30 years now. Our wonderful friends come over for both the Eve and the Day, Jon makes scrumptious food, and we toast England's New Year! Our friends are from there originally and it gets increasingly hard to stay up for the USA's version, so we cover our options by celebrating early!
My favorite part of New Year's Eve is actually New Year's Day... A day dedicated to football, shopping, food, Scrabble and general slothfulness.
I can not even imagine where we will be next year at this time. I am very excited to see what the new year brings though...
Here is my wish for myself, and all of you:
Many days of calm and contentment, sprinkled with numerous joyous times of unrestrained happiness, success in whatever way you define it; but also, just enough sadness to remind us we are human.
Happy New Year everyone!
