New Year’s Eve was one of the best I’ve ever had. It seems like I’ve either been pregnant or have just given birth for the past 4 years, so this was the first time out to a proper new year’s bash. Location: Pacific Rim Fairmont. People: Rann and Tara, Chris and Julie (Tara’s friends from Australia), Brad and Julie and Chris and myself.
The frivolity began at the Cannon’s with delicious appetizers and lots of wonderful wine and Aquavit. We headed downtown to the beautiful hotel lobby lounge where there was a live band and a table waiting for us, complete with party hats, tiaras and noisemakers. The ambiance was classy and as one would expect from a classy downtown hotel. The champagne flowed, we rocked the dancefloor to Home for a Rest and toasted the new year at midnight with champagne and lots of kisses. There were tons of yummy treats at the midnight buffet and it was truly a wonderful way to ring in the new year.
No big resolutions or big plans for 2011. I finally feel like we are at a place in life where it is comfortable and I am going to enjoy every minute of it. We aren’t struggling with anything, the kids are healthy, we love where we live, life is good. I know that it can change in a moment, but until then, I plan to travel, try to keep up the running and yoga, play a LOT with the kids and appreciate this wonderful life that we have.
