Happy New Year!

For New Years Eve I had a fabulous evening. I spent my night doing something I truly love which is volunteering with the Victorian Society. The City of Falls Church throws a huge midnight watch party downtown and I was with the Victorian Society assisting them with part of the event. We were dressing people up in Victorian clothing and taking Victorian era photos. It was so much fun seeing the range of visitors coming in and how excited they were to try on clothing. I loved the kids the best. They would be so shy at first but I would soon have them dressed in cute clothes and smiling big. It was a joy to be there do service to bring in the new year.

Later that evening I went to a house party where there was a ball dropping at midnight and a lighting of the new year including drinks of sparkling cider all around. It was fun to see old faces and catch up with friends. This year is going to be a good one. I have so many goals and things I want to accomplish. 2011 was good but 2012 is going to be filled with many new experiences and opportunities for growth. As Ian Axel sings, This is the New Year!

This Is The New Year lyrics

Another year you made a promise
another chance to turn it all around
and do not save this for tomorrow
embrace the past and you can live for now
and I will give the world to you

Speak louder that the words before you
and give them meaning no one else has found
The role we play is so important
we are the voices of the underground
and I would give the world to you

Say everything you’ve always wanted,
be not afraid of who you really are,
cause in the end we have each other,
and that's at least one thing worth living for,
and I would give the world to you

A million suns that shine upon me
A million eyes you are the brightest blue
Lets tear the walls down that divide us
and build a statue strong enough for two,

I pass it back to you
and I will wait for you,
cause I would give the world
and I would give the world
and I would give the world to you

This is the new year
A new beginning
You made a promise
You are the brightest
We are the voices
This is the new year
We are the voices
This is the new year
