Happy new year! I hope everyone had a great end to 2011 and is looking forward to a joyful and love-filled 2012.
E and I started our night at Music Hall to see E’s dad play with the CSO. Every year they do a concert and special gala and since I started listening to the classical station in the car (short story: I hate all of Cincinnati’s radio stations, thus I listen to classical because there are no commercials and occasionally I learn something about animals from the ’90 second naturalist’ segment’) I knew all about the concert, but never thought E would go. But it was so fun! They played a few pieces from operas and operettas (not my favorite) and ended with several jazz numbers (my favorite). I think we saw E’s dad play in about two of the songs. I guess it was an easy gig!
Music Hall is so pretty and it was a nice date. Even nicer was the people watching. Whoa. Because of the gala, you can see people in anything and everything. Fur. Ball gowns. Tuxes. We were nowhere that dressed up, but maybe someday. What girl doesn’t want an excuse to get all dolled up?
We then went to a friend’s party and proceeded to have too much food and drink…per usual for new years! Needless to say, today has been laaaaazy. The only time we’ve been out of the house was when I took Nico on a walk. It’s been like a mini vacation for a day.
As for 2012 resolutions? Last year I made a whole list of goals that never really were achieved except for saving money and keeping the house cleaner. This year, instead of trying to force things to happen, I want to relax and focus on creating balance in all parts of our life.
That pretty much sums it up completely. I want more out of 2012. Happy New Year!

Now that we have this little guy:
we have someone else to buy a special gift for. He even has his own stocking. And while Nico is already a stylin’ guy on our street, he could always use a little help. Here’s a few ideas for your furry friend (that don’t involve silly outfits and will actually look cute in your home.)
