Buh-bye 2016, Hello 2017!

Last year I went to a HUGE house party for NYE.  I’d say there were somewhere between 100 to 200 people in attendance.

It was really a magnificent event and I had a great time with my date.

I believe I drank my weight in champagne but managed to keep a lid on things.

No, I didn’t disgrace myself until the Dr. Seuss party where I drank too much rum and spewed vomit all over his car pulled over on the side of the road.

My bad!

See if I ever let anyone make my drink again without me watching!

Anyhow, this year I’m going to the same house party.

This time with the beautiful Barbara as my date.

Yes, nothing like bringing your BFF to a party to ensure that you have a GREAT time!

Of course, there will be no NYE kiss for me this year (sad face) but I might be able to scrounge up a partner or two to lay one on me.

And here, I’m debuting my outfit for NYE – a lovely rose gold sequin gown with matching accessories!nye-outfit

Yay!  Totally gorgeous!

Buh-bye 2016, HELLO 2017!






132e5bb5-f136-44c8-9d53-880620a38114Last year I went to the Temple and left my messages to loved ones on the wood to be burned to ash when the Temple burned.

But I did not watch the Temple burn.

And I deeply regretted it.

img_0231This year I went to the Temple but I left no messages to be burnt into cinders.

But I did watch it burn.

Quite the moving experience, if you ask me.


Originally, I had grand plans for this Temple burn.

I was going to release my feelings for people who used to, but no longer held positions of love in my life.

Oh, I was going to print out our IMs to fasten to the Temple walls.

I was going to burn the only gift I was ever given from him.

And you know what?

I didn’t do it.

It’s not that I didn’t want to.

Or couldn’t.

It’s that just planning my good bye was good enough.

My peace was made.

And anything else was just redundant.

You know it’s a magical healing place, when just the thought of it gives you spiritual release!
