Who Says PJs aren’t chic?

I rang in the New Year around 10pm on Saturday night. Actually, my first celebration of 2012 came many hours earlier at a coffee date with my friend Jenn. The cafe had CNN on in the background and they were showing the celebration in Seoul. I said Happy New Year to her. Later that day, I was out with my mom and it was New Year’s in Iran. We wished each other a Happy New Year and then said we were thankful we weren’t in Iran.

The point of all of this is to say I rang in the New Year in the way I wanted- quietly at my house, in my chic PJs. If I remembered to, I would have taken a picture of my snazzy New Year’s attire, since everyone else was snapping photos of their sequined duds for the last/first night of the year. I had on my most comfy and ridiculous purple sweatpants styled with the coolest of hoodies. I spent the  night reading a fluff book and watching Mad Men, drinking wine and eating fresh bread, cheese, and chocolate. It was utterly me and utter perfection.

With the new year, a lot of changes are swirling all around me. New life status, living alone, small house DIY projects, cooking adventures, reading at least fifty new books, and more. I have a lot of goals for myself, the biggest being this blog, but I have never been filled with more excitement and anticipation in my life.

    Yours sounds like the perfect New Year’s Eve, being with someone who loves and understands you, enjoying fine food and wine, and wearing clothes that make you feel like a comfy queen. You are a mentor to us all, as you launch a new year of change and promise! I am proud of you, my dear.

  2. I’m hoping you start a new trend for New Years 2013. PJs all the way! Sounds like the most perfect way to ring in the new year that I can think of.
