Old Acquaintance Not Forgot

Happy new year!  We certainly had a happy one.  I figure we deserved it, as we have coined 2011 as "The Bittersweet Year."  There was plenty of bitter, sad goodbyes, changes and frustrations.  But there was plenty of sweet too, fulfilling a decade long dream of moving to Nashville permanently, new jobs, new friends, and a growing, happy, healthy rug rat.  Yet, we were happy to kiss 2011 goodbye and welcome 2012 with new hope and old friends.

For Rocky's Thirtieth Birthday, I surprised the old man with a trip to DC for New Years.  I'm not entirely sure how the forty-something people that were in on the surprise managed to keep it a secret for six-plus weeks, but they did.  More miraculously, I did too.

Bennett spent the weekend with Mimi and Poppa, getting his first taste of McDonald's and skipping naps.  With Bennett in caring hands and Atticus with the Skis for the weekend, we made our way to Washington just the two of us.  We saw many friendly faces.
We ate ourselves silly. The tasting menu at Graffiato made for one memorable meal. Gail was right, Pepperoni Sauce=Awesomesauce.

And now we long to go back.  Maybe we just need a weekend apartment in the city or something.  And a private jet.  That would be nice.  Maybe 2012 will be the "Spoiled Rotten Year."  Maybe it already is!
