|Manhattans with candlelight.|
Last night was our New Year's Eve. With the kids tucked up at their Nan's house, we hit Rockpool Bar & Grill for a few cocktails and some oysters. We sipped on Manhattans Mad Men-style and felt like complete grown-ups.
We then headed to a fab French restaurant close to home and feasted on pork belly, duck done four ways and chocolate marquise. What a way to bring in the new year! Awash with animals fats and a French Burgundy.
It was truly the most perfect night out for me. As we feasted and laughed, Skip and I chatted about the year that was and our dreams for the year that will be.
Tonight we're continuing the festivities with a BBQ at home with a couple of close friends. I think the sprinkler will come out for the kids as it's warm out there.
Tomorrow night (the real NYE) we always spend at home. The four of us together. We'll eat burgers washed down with a fantastic bottle of red (the kids will have lemonade) we'll stroll down the street and see the 9pm fireworks. Then we'll be tucked up in bed well before midnight. The perfect way to spend NYE in my book.
How do you like to bring in the new year?
