Happy New Years Eve!

Ohhhhh New Years Eve. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this evening. I love the idea of it- setting new intentions, fresh starts, staying up late to celebrate with friends that are dearest to you... But I totally loathe the logistical nightmare this evening causes- trying to figure out transportation (ugh! cabs!), the pull and guilt around which commitments you should commit too, and (at least with Jeff and I) our complete inability to stay awake until midnight EVERY YEAR! (No matter how hard we try!) The last few years, we have opted to stay home, make fondue and have a wonderful evening just the two of us, and this year, I am very much looking forward to doing just that- Cheese fondue for two, followed by chocolate fondue with our favourite fruits and cakes. Our sweet friends the de Boers, dropped off a little gift box of treats and Prosecco to celebrate our engagement, so we have that chilling away to be enjoyed tonight! All beginnings of little traditions that I cant wait to share and continue with Finn as he gets older. 

What are your New Years plans or traditions?
