Happy New Years!!!
How did you Spend your New Years Eve? and How did you spend the First day of the New Year?
This year Carolina and I decided to take it easy and stay at home this past year’s end. This was the first in seven years that I actually had New Years eve and day off, so we wanted to make it special. Usually Carolina would come to the restaurant, have dinner, and wait until I finished up so that we could toast to the New Year right at twelve a.m. Then we would go out with a few friends… blah blah blah…
Instead of going out doing the same ol’ same ol’ we wanted to spend the time together and possibly create a new tradition. Spending the day with the people you truly love and doing the things you love to do.
