5 years ago from yesterday marked the anniversary of my first official date with CD. For New Year’s Eve that year, our friends threw a burning party. They served amazing food and everyone brought something to burn in the large fire pit outside. It was a great way to end one year and begin another – very cleansing. People burned everything from journal entries to photographs. I burned a pair of old jeans as it was finally time to let them go, and wow, denim really lights up. Who knew? Anyway, the burning party became an annual tradition, until our friends had a baby and then another. Now they host a New Year’s Day breakfast for their friends with children, and you have to show up in your pajamas. This was our first year to attend the breakfast, and it was so fun. Chris and I were laughing thinking about that first New Year’s Eve together, and now here we are, 5 years later, married and with a baby. Crazy.
CD and I brought some Hawaiian baked sweet potatoes and joined in the feast.
I fixed two plates and piled them high with eggs, hash brown casserole, quiche, our sweet potatoes, and half a Belgian waffle. I ♥ breakfast food!
This morning was Summer’s first social outing, and tonight we’re going over to another friend’s house for a New Years Day dinner. It’s a busy day for the HEAB family, and now it’s time to get back to taking down the Christmas decorations which always makes me so sad. I’m never ready for the holidays to end.
So, did everyone enjoy their New Year’s Eve? Did you stay up until midnight? I was fast asleep but not for long.
