Last Night

Hello all!  We had planned on getting dressed up and going to jazz bar to ring in the new year.  That didn't happen.  Due to our impulsive nature, we decided last minute to head to Times Square.  While my spontaneous nature thought this would be a great idea, our planning method was a little lacking.  As you could expect showing up at 5 PM means lots of crowds, police blockades, and general chaos and irritation. After having the world's worst pizza at $7 per slice, we decided to leave.

We then headed to Union Square and watched Mission Impossible 4.  I had never seen any of this series before but I was pleasantly surprised.  All of the action sequences fed my inner desire to be a spy, detective, or private eye.  We finally decided on a solid plan: walk the Brooklyn Bridge at midnight.  We walked downtown, stopped to get some snacks in Chinatown, and ventured through the financial district.  Now, not to sound trite, but some of these buildings made me stop in my tracks.  Although I've been here for nearly 4 years, I never really take the time to stop and look around.  It was beautiful, literally and in concept.  We finally go the bridge, joined by other festive walkers with sequin hats and noise makers.  The clock struck midnight and the sky was filled with fireworks, my heart quickly beating with excitement, and all while looking into the eyes of the man I love.

While it was rather unconventional, I couldn't have asked for a better New Year's Eve.  How was yours?

  5. Looked like you had an amazing night. Time square was unbelievable on NYE. The blockage was insane. I had to stop at every checkpoint to show the cops the ticket to the event I was attending before they allowed me to pass!!! But you have to love NYC.

    I wish you the best for 2012.


Leave me some love! It's makes my day!
