Hello 2013

1 Jan

Ah, a new year.



We’ll all be turning another year older and hopefully be a little more wiser too.

New Year’s eve was good, since we spent it out and about in Toronto. 



Earlier Monday evening we took the train down to Toronto to celebrate the new year. We picked up a quick dinner and got ready at our apartment. Around 8:30pm we made our way to the pub we would be spending our evening at and as we walked over from the subway there was a light snowfall. It was a cold but beautiful evening and the streets were dark but comforting. There is something eerily peaceful about quiet streets late at night.   



To be honest, Laura struggled a bit with staying up until the clock struck twelve. For a girl who hits the pillow relatively early, random late nights aren’t so easy. Anyone else struggle with this? Denise, on the other hand was her energetic self as always.  

However, all in all it was an enjoyable night and we rang in the New year with a shot to end 2012 with a bang. It would be our last New Year’s all college students (assuming we pass all our courses this semester 😉 So we had to end it in true college fashion!

This morning we took the train out of Toronto to finish off the New year’s celebration with our own families. 


And now we are nestled in our houses recuperating from our late night. With lots and lots of coffee of course. 

And a warm fire. 



Anyway, we rang in the new year like true college kids but soon it will be time to get serious again and focus on our studies. It’s only a matter of days before we start school again and we cannot exactly say we are thrilled about it. But why dread the inevitable? We feel quite inspired by this new year as well. 2013 holds a lot of changes for us, graduation, new jobs, new living arrangements, new post-grad schooling… (and new episodes of the walking dead…haha just kidding…sort of). We talked about ways we could make it our best year yet too. Hopefully, it will be a great year! 

Until next time, 

Denise and Laura 

What is your preferred way to spend new year’s eve? Are you a stay in kind of person or go out?

    Happy new year! Sounds like a great time! I had to work yesterday and today so it was an early night for me 🙂 The overtime will be nice though!

      Overtime pay is always a treat! 😀 Sometimes a simple entry into the new year is best too.

    It seems like you girls had a fun New Years. I personally prefer to stay in and celebrate with family and friends.
