I’d love to say that it’s a tradition of mine to ring in the new year with glitz & glam, song & noise, friends & fun…
That would be a bold faced lie.
In fact, it seems like for the past few years I was pregnant or up most of the night feeding an infant, so sleep was more valued than celebration… and I’ve slept right through most of them.
But not this year!
This year we feasted on food from around the world!
This year we blew into noise makers and lit off sparklers!
As 2016 rolled in, I hugged my loved ones and said “Happy New Year!”
…And it was a lot of fun!
(I get it, no promises on the future, but I get it!)
To commemorate the New Year on my blog, I started with a cookbook giveaway that celebrates family and food! (Seems befitting) I entered the number of comments on random.org and it selected #22. Congratulations Dave, you are the winner of Return to Sunday Dinner! (And Dave, aka dad, thank you for your support of my blog.) I look forward to checking out the Spam Cookbook, (a delicacy of Hawaii). Please contact me via email to claim your prize! 🎉
And thanks to Ryan French for many of my New Year’s photos!
