New Year Eve 2008!

New Years Eve is celebrated in so many different ways around the United States and the world. So this year we clebrated in Charlotte our hometown. Even though I am a transplant from well...A bunch of places. I thought it was awesome how Charlotte founders came together and created Charlotte First Night. The First night of the year in Charlotte. Each year we try to do something a bit different to ring in the new year. Last year we partied in a club until the clock hit midnight and drank champange. This year we hung out in the middle of a crowd waiting for the proverbial ball to drop and drank coffe to keep warm. It was a big difference let me tell you :)

Did I mention it was cold as.... well..I won't use the analogy here that I would like to..But is was cold...LOL
