As I mentioned, this year was the complete opposite as far as New Year’s Eve celebrations went. And I’m not complaining at all. I was able to spend the beginning of the year with some of my favorite people, relaxing, laughing and catching up.
Cavs game with Monina and her daughter, A. To quote Monina, “It’s the start of the New Year and of course, we’re going back to where it always starts for us – Hodge’s”. Mo and I have been going to Hodge’s for years for deep conversations, glasses of wine and many, many laughs. There are some days where I don’t know what I’d do without Mo in my life.
I watched T. Swift ring in the New Year and was happily in bed by 12:30. Like I said, opposite of last year and I am not complaining.
On the last day of holiday break, I spent the entire evening with a few people that mean the absolute most to me. My extended family if you will. We laughed, gave each other advice, watched the Buckeyes head to the National Championship and planned a summer vacation together (North Carolina 2015…here we come!) I can’t think of a better way to spend a night than with these people.
Heading back to work on Friday was a bit difficult but I’m not going to lie – I need my routine back! I like waking up early and being in the office (#workaholic) and when your coworkers are more like family, it makes things much easier. We had team brunch together, cleaned up the office, listened to some T. Swift while preparing ADDY entries…all in all not a bad way to kick the New Year with the team off.
And to wrap up the weekend? A Lake Erie Monsters game with Jen (thanks J.G.!)
No complaints as we’re starting off 2015!
