So Long, 2014

I love New Years Eve.  It gives me the opportunity to look back at the current year and reflect on all the memorable moments that I want to hold on to.  Like all the years in the past, 2014 did not disappoint.  Earlier this year we went to Palm Springs, CA for a meeting where we visited Mount San Jacinto and had a tennis star sighting of Novak Djokovic.  In April we celebrated our three year wedding anniversary :) and visited New Orleans where we toured the WWII Museum and ate our weight in beignets {mmmmm….}.  Of course, this summer was our big trip to Thailand, which you can read about herehereherehere, and finally here.  More recently, we of course found out that we were expecting!!  Made a trip to Chicago for Thanksgiving where were got to see The Bean, and our final trip of the year was to NYC.  It’s been a great year, but I know that next year is going to be even better! I have never looked more forward to a new year {like this one} in all my life!  The Dietrichs welcome you, 2015!

Hope you all have a very fun, safe, and Happy New Year!


Do you guys know the lyrics to this infamous New Years Eve song?  Google them…  not really sure why this song is the “New Years Eve song”… it’s kind of depressing.  It always reminds me of that final scene in When Harry Met Sally, y’all know the part… not that Harry Met Sally is a depressing movie at all… I actually love that movie!  But they talk about the song in that last scene and the irony of the lyrics.

This year Husband & I rang in the New Year with family and friends and I wouldn’t have wanted it to be any other way.  We had a fantastic steak dinner (yum!), then made it home just in time to pop a bottle of champagne & watch the ball drop in Times Square.  I don’t know how those people stand there all day long… I heard that they are not allowed to drink anything or go to the bathroom unless they plan to lose their spot in the crowd.  Insanity!  It is on my bucket list though… to be in Times Square for New Years Eve… but I think I will take the option of watching from a balcony in a hotel room.  Am I a diva or what? ;)

See ya later 2012!  It’s been real… welcome 2013!!!
