New Year’s Eve 01.01.

We got to ring in the New Year at one of our favorite places: The Sammons household (we were married in their garden). Since Franklin lives in New York and William is in California, we don’t get to see them often. It’s nice when they come into town, but hopefully we can make an effort to visit them this year! There are also folks in Maryland, Texas, NOLA, and Florida we need to visit.

Last night we rang in the New Year with raccoon feeding*, beer pong, a “Do You Realize?!” sing-a-long, loads of laughter, hilarious stories, Radiohead dancing, and great company. It was a low key night, but probably something we needed. We left their house around 1:30am and had a nice walk home as the temperature was very mild…it was nice. We got home around 2am just as the rain started pouring down (had no idea it was supposed to rain) and it was a wonderful sound to aid sleep.

Pacino was kind enough not to start chirping a 7am and we got to sleep in – a great way to start the New Year!

*apparently Mrs. Sammons has a soft spot for these two raccoons that showed up when they were little babies, and she’s been feeding them cat food lol
