HAPPY NEW YEAR!

IMG_0157   My favorite New Year’s Eve celebrations are small, intimate and at home.  This year was the best!  Wonderful friends, fantastic food (my friend Joanna cooked), and a rousing game of Cards against Humanity! (I lost!)

IMG_0150We started with Moscow Mules in my new copper cups (thanks Timmy!) Joanna is an amazing cook and she made steaks with the best cognac, peppercorn sauce that I have ever had- I licked the plate!  Our first course was a  butternut squash soup to die for and I made a gruyere potato gratin and affogato with toasted coconut for dessert.

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”

― Denis Waitley

I wish each of you a wonderful, happy day each day of the year 2015!

    If you haven’t played Cards Against Humanity, you have to try it out. It causes some great gut laughs!
    Thank you, Catherine! Here is to a great 2015 full of love, grace, and gratitude!
