It’s 2013! Although many might think of it as the year of the Hamster, it’s really the year of Sparkles. The year where possibilities are endless. The year where the true meaning of family, success, happiness, health, and love stands. At least according to the note cards I filled out with colorful pencils before everyone showed up. And based on the way my party turned out, I will also add that it’s a year a long, meaningful friendship.
I brought in the New Year with some of my favorite people who traveled all the way to Harlem to shout, dance, jump, and chase fires with me. I’m a lucky girl, and I’m truly grateful. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing my friends succeed, grow, and form their families. My beautiful friend Sarita is very pregnant, and I was so happy to have her, her boyfriend, and Mia (the baby) on my roof, holding a sparkler, and screaming, “Happy New Year!”
It was amazing seeing my friends kiss, hold, and hug each other. My boyfriend is the best partner ever! He slaved in the kitchen the whole day to make sure we had a variety of tasty and healthy canapes. Some friends came early to help decorate. Everyone contributed something special to the whole night.
I would like to say that I have the most beautiful, interesting, inspiring, silly, and awkward group of friends anyone could ever ask for! Enjoy these pictures that don’t even BEGIN to describe what a wonderful time we had.
Happy New Year!
