It's no secret that January in New York is....well, if I'm being honest...kinda stinky. The skies are mostly grey. The street are covered with a snow-dirt-street funk cocktail that is both unattractive and dangerous...just the other day I slipped and fell in the middle of the street. In typical New York fashion, the people in the cab watching my tumble burst into laughter while they pointed at me. A lesser woman would have returned the finger pointing with another type of finger pointing, but I just got up with the help of my sister (who was laughing too) and hobbled home.
Anyways...in spite of gloomy grey New York days, we managed to have a pretty fun January. We even found a few blue skies before the month had whizzed to a close. Below, a look at our favorite moments from the month...
We rang in the New Year in Southern California with lovely weather and a little fun on the beach...
Nudy Rudy party. Every morning. Every day. Be there or be square.
We made a quick trip down to Georgia for a little horseback riding and river watching...
Plus a twelve year old celebration with my favorite girl, Miss Rosie.
And check out that spectacular gift presentation...the highlight of the party.
(well, in his opinion anyway)
We made a quick trip to our family farm in Blufton, GA...I drove that tractor. (Yeah right...I wasn't even allowed to touch it!)
And there was even quicker trip to Lake Eufaula...it has been more than a decade since I saw that dock in person. There is just nothing like reuniting with your childhood after moving so far away. I savor these rare opportunities to reconnect with my roots.
