"Donuts is there anything they can't do?" - Homer Simpson
Well it seemed a good way to commemorate the New Year at the time.
We drove to St. Petersburg to hang out with my family, and brought my Mom to First Night celebrations downtown.
Walking in the luminary maze and arriving in the center, you set your intentions (or make a wish) tying a ribbon to the large oak.
Paper lanterns held messages from the creator, usually universal in understanding.
We all went over to my brother and sister-in-law's house for a party. And stayed too late. It was a great way to start the New Year.
However you spent yours, working, celebrating, alone, with others; I hope that 2012 exceeds your expectations!
