It’s one of my favorite days of the year, New Years’ Eve! I love saying goodbye to the year and welcoming the upcoming one. In fact, the week between Christmas and New Years is actually my favorite of the year. I do my absolute best to tie up loose ends and start the year with a clean slate. Clean inbox, projects wrapped up, and a very clean Christmas-free house. It feels really good.
I usually welcome the new year by myself on the couch watching the ball drop. Wes is not exactly a night owl, and even though it is not very romantic to reach midnight by myself, it is a tradition that I really love. I sip a cocktail, and then go into the kid’s rooms, whisper a Happy New Year into their ears and give them a kiss and make my way to bed.
I love sparkly cocktails. If I go to a nice dinner, I always start with a glass of bubbly. There are very few things that I think are more festive or delicious than a beautiful glass of champagne. To make it even more fun I like to add a little scoop of sorbet to the glass and a few springs of mint. This is equally refreshing to welcome the new year, or in the backyard in the summer.
