New Years gets a bad rap. People say it is over-done and anti-climatic but I disagree. I love New Years. It's a time for looking forward, people are optimistic, fireworks, fun festive clothes and champagne...what's not to like?! This year was also a celebration of dating Jay for 1 year. Our first official date was last year on New Years when we party hopped and visited several friends' get-togethers.
This year to celebrate our 1st year together we went to Stoney River for a delicious steak dinner. It was so yummy. Then we went to a friend's house for a party. I made these "countdown cupcakes" to bring. The hosts did an awesome job. There were about 75 people there, lots of food, great decorations and even a balloon drop at midnight. We could also see fireworks from downtown on the deck. It was a great way to ring the in the new year with friends.
