new years eve is one of those days we look forward to all year. we know who we're going to be with. we know what we're going to do (eat and laugh and be with people we LOVE and who love us.)
for years now, we've gotten together with 3 of the couples we vacation with every summer...friends from college. we alternate the destination (northern virginia or richmond) and we just enjoy being together and ringing in the new year. i got to host this year, which i was so excited about!
just as i was putting the finishing touches on setting the table, my phone rang. the fogarty's weren't going to be able to come because owen had just gotten sick. the sadness was OVERWHELMING. they have 4 kids and my kids ADORE each and every one of them. not to mention i had a list of things that ali and i needed to cover and discuss :-) we were so so so sad.
LOVE these girls!! SO much! (but missed ali immensely...)
