New Year New Life

I had the BEST NYE ever this year.  THE BEST!  THE BEST!  Why?  Well, because I was with Crush, but also because I was celebrating exactly the way I wanted to....

We dressed up (coat and tie for him, little black dress and heels for me) and headed out for a cocktail before we had a delicious supper at a fancy restaurant.  I had 2 glasses of wine AND a martini, which is a lot for me these days....for real!  I got my buzz on and we talked about everything and anything.  We took photos.  We look so happy in them.  We are a cute couple, if I do say so myself.

After dinner, which included dessert and coffee (OF COURSE!), we went back to where we were staying and took a walk on the beach.  We kissed on the beach and I sang him some very silly songs which I love to do.  You know you are in my inner circle, when I act like I am 3 and sing a silly made up song to you.  He appreciated the effort.

After the beach, we put on our pjs and danced to all of my favorite slow songs.  It was magical.  He is the GREATEST dancer.  Fabulous he is.  We love the same songs and I have dreamed of dancing to them since college and 13 years later....well, all of my dreams are coming true!  So cool it is, swoon.

Cheese alert coming.....:

While we were dancing, I closed my eyes and I could picture us dancing on our wedding one day.  I know it sounds so looney and I know I am annoying, but I swear it happened.  I then started to cry a little.  I know, I know......I am such a goon.  But, then he said, "Did you just picture our wedding?  Cause I did.  I can see it, too."  We are very connected. We are in our own little world which no one really seems to understand...and that is okay, I suppose.  At least we are in it together.

After we danced ourselves right into 2013, we got a snack and read each other some short stories from a book he bought me.  It was exactly the way I wanted to spend my NYE or any night in general if I could.  PERFECT.

Before I went to sleep that night, I thought about NYE in 2010, 2012, and 2012.  All of these NYEs involved Awful.  2010 = First NYE together, 2011 = NYE with his family....SUCKED, 2012 = NYE right after we broke up....I was in pieces crying to my sister.....

2013 was WAY better.  Thank goodness.


  1. What a way to start the New Year! I have a sneaking feeling that this is going to be year! Get your resume together and move!

    1. THANK YOU! You are SO sweet and I am going to work on the resume tomorrow and I am excited about it! THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  2. Sorry I didn't proofread...I meant YOUR year!

  3. Okay, now I think your making this dude up! Tell us what you really did :)

    1. HAHA! I know, I know. He does seem almost pretend. All I can say is that 2 years ago, I sat while Awful barfed in a bowl next to the bed, so I am feeling like perhaps I deserve some better luck. AND, I loved reading about how you rang in the New Year as well...HOT!


Tell me your truth and I will continue to tell you mine......
