Ever since I was a little kid, I could never stay awake until the stroke of midnight. I guess you could say the same sort of thing happened last night. Only, when I was younger, I would always be disappointed the next day if I had not stayed up like all the adults.
This year, my Love and I went camping for New Year’s. There was a big party going on and (don’t get me wrong) we were part of the festivities — we even snuck into a bar where we actually had to pay. But before the stroke of midnight, we just weren’t present for the countdown. I am not disappointed, however, because I was exactly where I wanted to be. Curled up in his arms, talking and making jokes. Plus, today in the car while we were driving back, we had our own little mock-countdown 🙂
