Tricia and Mom planned for us a fun New Years trip this year. We started at 6pm and every hour we took a culinary trip around the world.
We also watched a great mini-series called North and South based on Elizabeth Gaskell's book. She also wrote Wives and Daughters for those that like period books/movies. We finished the night with English crackers (and their hilarious "prizes") and a toast of Martinelli's to the new year :).
I grew up in a little town with just under 10,000 people. I like the sense of community and family. Not at first though. Like most teenagers I couldn't wait to get out of here. And I did. I went to college and then university. I studied lots of different material and mets lots of different people. I had some really awesome experiences and some rather trying ones too. It was during those difficult times that I found who my real friends were so I like to stick with them. Once a friend; always a friend.
