By midnight, however, there were about 25 people standing in my basement hugging and kissing one another as the ball dropped. So sweet, but where the hell did they all come from? Once the magical minute was over, the board games and cocktail drinking resumed.
Oh yeah, and a hula hoop contest. That was definitely the highlight of the evening.
The luxury "Knight Rider" party bus stopping at my house was another highlight - worthy of its own post to be discussed at a later date.
What began as a quiet, intimate evening ended up as a raucous party comprised of the most random assortment of our family and friends.
The night was a perfect and unexpected reminder of the blessings in my life. Although we still do not have a child to brighten our days, Kevin and I are truly blessed to have such wonderful friends, neighbors, and family to lean on and play with.
So if you were here that night and are now reading this, please know that I love you for exactly who you are. And if you weren't here that night and are reading this, please know that I love you for exactly who you are too.
Here's to a wonderful year...
