The long weekend was a true gift. Brian and I were able to do just enough exploring with ample relaxing time scheduled in. Our time off ended up being the perfect way to kick off a new year and exactly what we needed. To start, we spent our time celebrating with family at a perfectly decked-out New Year’s party, Brian gave me a present in the form of a little blue box (a beautiful everyday necklace), we took a short road trip to a wine tasting in Malibu, cooked my favorite breakfast sandwich (twice), slept in everyday, drank a lot of tea, cooked our first Mexican-spiced chicken (a pleasant departure from our usual beer-can chicken) and ended the weekend by going to our first Lakers game (they won, woohoo!).
Hope you had a Happy New Year! Here’s to a fabulous 2012! xx
