Welcome, 2013

New Year's Eve has always been special to me. Growing up, it was the most important event in my family and everyone always did their best to get together at my grandparents house. As years go by, we've had some unfortunate situations in the family and some of us have grown apart, others, like me, moved away very very far, and it's not always easy to make my way back to grandpa's.

Last year I had the worst New Year's Eve in the history of my life, and I was bummed that this one wasn't going to be anything special either. Granted, there were hotel and club parties going on, but we have come to learn that it is very uncomfortable going to one of those things when you don't know absolutely anyone else. We decided to stay in, I cooked yummy food, we ate ice cream and we watched half of the Star Wars saga. 

Midnight caught me curled up in his arms, and I realized that's where I always want to be. Only Chelsea was missing in our little family. He kissed me and the fireworks started. Our apartment here in Hannam Village, faces to the Grand Hyatt, so we had the best spot to watch them. If you know me, you know fireworks is one of my favorite things in the world, but I didn't know the Hyatt was having any, so I ran and grabbed my camera, but I really do apologize about the quality of the pictures, I had to take them through a screened in window. Also, I was more worried about savoring the moment in my husbands arms than about getting a good shot. It was the best fireworks display I have ever seen in my entire life. 10 minutes of bright, colorful and explosive joy. I missed Chelsea even more. For some reason, she doesn't get frightened with fireworks, she kinda likes them. We always took her with us on the 4th of July and she sits there and watches them. I felt really lucky about our amazing view and the fact that I got to see this amazing show, from my window, wearing my pajamas. I wouldn't change a thing.

Happy New Year, Everyone
