Happy Holidays, friends! I hope this holiday season has been treating you well, and that you’ve got something fun planned to ring in the New Year. New Years Eve is typically one of my least favorite holidays, simply because it gets so hyped up, and rarely (for me, anyway) delivers on the hype. This year though, we made reservations at a local restaurant I’ve been dying to check out for ages, but that’s a bit too pricey for a typical run-of-the-mill dinner out. NYE seemed the perfect time to indulge a little bit more than normal, and I’m very excited for a low-key but delicious end to 2016!
