A Quiet Welcome to the New Year

Monday, January 2, 2017


Hello, 2017! I still can't believe how quickly you've come. With the relaxing nature of Christmas weekend, every year I find myself scrambling afterwards to make plans for New Years. This time around, my boyfriend and I opted to stay in for a cozy celebration with just the necessities -- Netflix and excessive amounts of food, of course.

I remember in college feeling self-pressured to celebrate New Years in the glitziest, most sequin-covered way possible. I'm still not much older, but this time the new year felt more like a quiet reminder than a holiday -- to appreciate, prioritize, pursue, and grow. A night together over wine and cheese followed by a West Village morning was all we needed to ring in 2017. How did you celebrate?
