Best New Years Eve ever (well in recent memory anyway)

Happy New Year everyone!

I've decided to stay up so I can get on Rome time.

I just flew back from St. Martin yesterday and didn't really get to sleep on the plane. I might become delirious in a few hours. ha

I went with a friend to a dinner party last night where there were a ton of kids. They like sparklers.

The second party which we went to after we couldn't find the club, had no kids but a DJ. I danced for hours and I bumped into who...my imfamous friend G. What the heck?

My other friend has nothing to do with the film world so to walk into this party and see so many people I know was kind of funny.

Several Italians busted out with "OH MY GOD!!" with an American accent. So wrong...I do not do that. Okay I lied. I do say that sometimes but not everyday or anything. And seeing G and his girlfriend was worthy of an OMG moment.

I was sad to leave St. Martin but happy to return to my home. I was alright at the airport until my sister started crying.

I have a bunch of pictures to go thru but hope to post a few beach shots later in the week. Getting to St. Martin was a nightmare. Snow delays, drama at the airport, etc. Returning to Rome I connected in Paris and was put on blast by the officer at the passport control for not being able to speak French. It does say on my French passport I was born in America and received my passport in Los Angeles. I have to conquer Italian before I can revisit French.

I need to write down my goals for 2010. 2009 started out horribly but ended well. I have high hopes for this year.

Not sure why but I feel like it's going to be a kick ass one.

How do you feel about the New Year? So many of my friends were glad to see 2009 go.

I can't honestly say what 2010 will feel like, which is throwing me off because I love planning out the New Year. When I'll have this baby has taken over all my thoughts. But I will say I think I'll grow up this year. I've felt like I've been living an extended college life for years but in 2010 I feel that will go away. But not sure if that's a good or bad thing... Glad to hear you had a great NYE!!!

Happy New Year, ragazza!

I too feel hopeful about 2010. Not sure why, but everything feels lighter and more positive than it did this time last year.

bigcnyc - yes this year is going to big for you. Can't wait to hear your good news.

Liane - thank you! Same to you. I think the past decade was a tough one for many people. We still have many of the same issues/problems but maybe things will get better.

anon - you're rude. that is why I deleted your comment. please stop.

Happy New Year! I enjoyed reading your blog in 2009 and look forward to more this year. I am also looking forward to visiting Rome again in the spring after way, way too long of an absence.

I love the positivity in this post...for some reason it just feels a bit exciting to me b/c i have the same feeling about '10 as well. I just feel a little more prepared and ready to see what this year brings than the beginning of '09! Hopefully I'll see you again this year too :)

Happy New Year! Glad to see the end of 2009. It was a tough one. I think 2010 will be better. I am cautiously optimistic.

Funny that even across the globe so many people are coming to the same consensus about 2009. My friends and I here in NY feel the same way and can't wait for all the goodies 2010 will bring our way. Here's to positive thinking. Adoro il tuo blog!
