This year for New Years my family spent our time at the beach. Florida decided to not really participate in winter this year, so it was the perfect weather to be at the beach. We had a party that no one really knows how it started and we spent lots of good family time together!
Tuesday we made out way to the island and to finally meet up with my mom's best friend from college and her husband. We were so beyond THRILLED to have Denise and Dave with us for New Years.
Wednesday night we had over 30 people over to ring in the New Year. Lots of food, drinks, and dancing surrounded us! Many didn't make it till 12, but those of us who did had a blast when the ball dropped. And then we were ready for bed.
January 2 is my sister's birthday and since we were on the island, a boat ride was in order. Mattie chose to a place for lunch and then we headed out on the boat to enjoy the day. It was a perfect day for a boat ride and after days of no sun, it came out and warmed us all right up!
After two weeks of being surrounded by people day in and day out, Saturday I finally made it back to my apartment with just Brutus in tow. The quiet was more than welcomed for this girl who needs alone time to recharge. And I would say Brutus was pretty happy to be home and get some cuddles in.
Break is now over and I am headed back to school and work. I loved being able to take the last two weeks off in order to maintain my sanity. I feel refreshed and ready to go! Here is to hoping that lasts longer than a week:)
