Happy Hour Time

HAPPY HOUR TIME 
Welcome, Welcome to the First Happy Hour post and first Friday of the New Year! I would like to wish everyone much luck in 2014, may this year be even better then the last! I have always loved staying up to watch the ball drop; it signals an opportunity to start anew! For New Year’s Eve I went to dinner with some friends and enjoyed ending and starting a new year with friends and family. I hope all of you are enjoying 2014; I have a feeling this is going to be a great year, I even like how 2014 looks!  Lastly, as I was writing this post I noticed I reached my 300th follower on GFC; I would like to give a special thanks to the Preppy Mom for being my 300th follower! I would also like to think all of you for the kind words, support, and of course for reading my blog! Your comments and emails mean so much to me. I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing weekend ahead! Here’s to a New Year and fresh beginnings! Cheers!

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
~ Ernest Hemingway
