happy new year, y'all!

we had a lovely time last night celebrating the coming of a new year with some good friends in the comfort of our home. everyone had a great time. unfortunately, i must now shampoo my carpets, scrub the heck out of my kitchen floor & search for one of my painted wine glasses that has turned up missing, but what the hell. we had fun.

i nearly missed the ball drop. i was in the bathroom, um, emptying my bladder of what felt like three gallons of wine. i could hear adam calling for me. it's hard to buckle your belt & wash your hands in a hurry. i made it out just as the countdown went, "3-2-1...happy new year!" whew. there was a lot of hugging & kissing in my living room. pictures were taken. people were smiling. it was a perfect moment.

miraculously, i am not hungover.

we're celebrating again tonight. this time with our kids {who are coming home today} and my parents. we're planning on gorging ourselves on delicious "lucky" foods like black-eyed peas & collard greens. we're also going to have a chinese feast - peking duck, roast pork, turnip cakes. adam's going to attempt to make some homemade dim sum dishes, too. i'm already looking forward to dinner & sharing the yummy goodness with the people i l♥ve. besides, new year's day isn't complete until you've noshed on some fabulous grub that brings good luck, right?!

today's the first day of a new year. a fresh start. a new beginning. i'm welcoming 2010 with open arms & i look forward to the possibilities of what lies ahead...whatever they may be.
