2011 has arrived, and 2010 was a roller coaster of a year for me. I look back fondly but also remember a lot of drama and moments of disappointment. But all we can do is look forward. Fouad tells me that 2011/my 27th year of existence is the year of the boyfriend. I feel like he says that to me every year, and I am still single. I am kind of making peace with the fact that part of my life is just kind of a disaster zone. I personally think 2011 will be the year of Europe. I have been saying I want to visit that continent for years now. It is a goal to finally make it happen. With my promotion and Google's company wide rise, I should have the finances for it (as long as my SF lifestyle and Gilt Groupe addiction don't get in the way). I am hopeful for the year to come, and I think that's the attitude to have. Kudos to Ramy's ex Cameron and Jenny McCarthy for the Law of Attraction.
I also hope that the Working Gays grow closer and bigger in this coming year. We've had some departures and additions. Friendships have to evolve, but I hope some parts will remain consistent. I love my boys, and bringing them all together is probably one of the biggest accomplishments in life. Without my darling friends, I would have no joy. There would be no stories to share, laughter to be had or connections to be made.
"I drink champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty." - Madame Lilly Bollinger: a little inspiration from New Year's Eve for you all.
So my dear readers, I send a lot of hugs and kisses your way. I have you in my thoughts and in my heart. May you have a glorious start to 2011!
