{This Moment} Holiday Edition

A Friday ritual inspired by Amanda Soule & many others.
Please feel free to share a link to your own moment in the comments.

I'm welcoming 2014 with wide open arms, but allow me one last recap before we start with a clean slate.  Our holidays were wonderful: Christmas Eve at my parents' house, Christmas Day at Roger's parents' house, visits from many dear friends in the week after, and a beautiful New Year spent in Astoria made it a holiday season to remember! I hope you found peace and joy in yours, and that 2014 brings you happiness upon happiness.

We had a nice dusting of snow on Christmas Eve!

On Boxing Day, we had a few friends over for wine and cheese.

Virginia Woolf was a perfect angel this holiday season, as always.

We took down our decorations a little early this year. They were beautiful, but I felt a little crowded.

On the 27th, I met up with Roger at his office for lunch!

And saw his cube for the first time!

Roger & V.W. share a special moment.

On New Year's Eve we headed through Harlem to Astoria.

And I was all dolled up!

Our 11th NYE together!

We met up with Shaelyn and E. at the end of the evening!

Recap of this week on Not Intent On Arriving:

  • On Tuesday, I quickly wished everyone a happy New Year's Eve with an old favorite tune.
  • On Wednesday, I filled out my annual survey and talked about 2013's tribulations and triumphs, along with my hopes for 2014.
  • And yesterday I got back to my West Coast recaps, and talked about our last day in California, spent in beautiful Sonoma!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
