  1. I'm a When Harry Met Sally gal myself. It is so very very close to my husband and my story that it is one of our favorites. The difference being I did not meet him while driving to NYC. :-) All the rest is pretty damn on the money.

    New Years Eve is our anniversary. We spend it either going out to dinner or staying home.Either way we make it mellow - not party streamers and lots of people - not for us.
    This year, we have some fun plans during the day and are making a great meal at home that evening, which I am sure will contain a great bottle of wine.
    perfection to us.

    Whatever you do Barbara, Happy New Year!
