It's here. Happy 2012! Beautiful morning, coffee and made myself breakfast. Scrambled eggs with jalapenos, onions, zucchini and peppers. Yummy. Yes, this is going to be a spectacular year.
Last night, I worked and although it was not as busy as I had hoped it would be, it was still pleasant and I toasted the new year with sam adams. My boss thought it would be different to have a beer toast instead of the traditional champagne. I agreed. We are a beer bar.
I drove home and the minute I entered Tempe, there were police everywhere. The block party was part of the increased feel of police and it was a holiday. I arrived safely at my house and reflected on the last year before going to bed. As previously noted, 2011 was about personal growth, adaptation and compassion. I feel I greatly benefitted and am now ready for something different. I feel fantastic about the possibilities of 2012.
There is running (always and with the Goddess), wine inspired weekends/trips and a friend is getting married in September. Somehow, I agreed to be her maid of honor. I am out of practice in that regard and lately, been reminded how "earthy" I am. Translation--not that girlie or equipped for the shopping for dresses aspect of the wedding. I can plan a fantastic dinner but the whole let's go gab and shop is out of my realm of expertise. I think I have been referred to as "granola" lately, too. Whatever.
I am excited for their nuptials but they fall a week before my birthday and I had hoped to celebrate in Napa as Brian would have been 30 this year and that seems like the ideal place to toast his birthday./ Shari and I discussed a potential celebratory spot before I remembered I had other commitments. Still, I might be able to do both. Just need to make it work with the job.
I must reflect later on this. Works calls....
