Ahh the joy of welcoming a new year means surrounding yourself with great friends and great memories. Last night several friends came over to meet, greet, and eat before going out to dinner. Later on we came back to the apartment to play games and just be with friends who we haven't seen in months. As time ticked we decided to go down to victory park and be with the thousands of people to welcome in the new year. We had a blast standing amongst the thousands for over an hour in the cold as we all counted down to 2009. I hope that your new year was welcomed with open arms as well!
