What an amazing year! A lot of things happened this past year, and 2011 definitely did not disappoint. We adopted a new handsome greyhound, my husband got a new job, I graduated from law school and passed the bar exam, and we moved to sunny California! All in all, I’d say it was a pretty good year. So naturally, we had to say goodbye to 2011 in style.
Last year we went to a fabulous black tie party in downtown KC with even more fabulous friends. This year, we celebrated in CA with a yummy dinner party at Auntie and Tio’s. After a delicious five-course meal, with each course prepared by a different couple (I made chocolate pots de creme!), we all stayed up until midnight drinking champagne and swapping proposal stories at the table. What a wonderful group of people! Auntie and Tio (the hosts of the evening), Robert and Kathleen (from Roswell, NM), Lina Jane and Bruce (from KC), Janet and Michael (from Manteca, CA), and me and my cute hubby (Petaluma of course!). It was a wonderful evening, and hopefully we can do it again next year.
As we look to the future and what we have planned, it is good to reflect on where we’ve been and what we’ve experienced. This last year was very busy and exhausting, but also very rewarding. I hope 2012 is not quite as stressful, but I look forward to discovering what the new year has in store for me.
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you have a wonderful 2012!
