Happy New Year! We hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and are ready to take on 2013. Mike and I spent most of our holidays apart, him visiting his family in Newfoundland and me finishing my exams, visiting my own family, and coming back early to get ready for school on the 2nd (law school is a grinch). We finally reunited on New Year’s Eve, and decided to avoid the crowds and cold of downtown Halifax to stay home, open gifts, and stuff our faces one last time in 2012. I made a little cake surprise for Mike and dressed Derwood in his finest business casual (or catual?). We had a great night listening to new and old records, playing Donkey Kong Jenga, and watching the few fireworks we could see from our apartment window. We might have been quiet ringing in the new year, but we have big plans for 2013!
