I love New Years Eve!

When I was a child, we used to have huge parties with all our friends and relatives. It was the biggest party of the year by far. Today was also the day Santa would visit all the kids with his sack full of lollies, chocolates and other sugary goodness. {That’s what you get when you are growing up a Communist society where religious holidays such as Christmas or Easter weren’t celebrated publicly}.

Living in Sydney, New Years Eve is all about the fireworks. And for the past 15 years that I’ve lived here, each time they announce that this year’s fireworks are going to be “The Best Ever”. It’s pretty funny. But they are some seriously spectacular fireworks just the same. Certainly the best ones I’ve ever seen anywhere.



So what are you doing for New Years Eve?

Husband and I are hosting a party at our place tonight. Just like the “ol’ times”. I can’t wait!

We are going to party like rock stars, and I reckon that looks something like this – except I’m not blonde… nor do I have “invisible nipples” like the girl in the first photo ;-}



So whatever you do tonight, I hope you have a great time. And Husband and I wish you the happiest New Year of all. May this be the year in which your current dreams become reality so that you may dare to dream even bigger dreams.

I have a great feeling about 2010. It’s going to be an amazing year.
