Dr. S and I spent a rare dinner out on New Year's Eve with a couple good friends. It was our second dinner out without our baby bear since she was born 7.5 months ago (the first being Dr. S' birthday a couple months back). Those days when we would spontaneously go out to dinner for a date night seem like a lifetime ago! Luckily, our baby bear's sleep has become decently regular over the past couple months, and we gladly accepted my parents' offer to babysit for a few hours. Although the weather was a bit nippy by Southern California standards, I braved the chill in this hi-low multi-print number I picked up during the recent tag sale at Anthropologie. It's official - I've completely lost my tolerance for cold weather that I developed after being in the Northeast for 11 years. After dinner, we drove back to my parents house and watched the ball drop (albeit 3 hours later with the time difference) in our cozy PJs. With the birth of our daughter and starting fellowship, it's been an amazing and memorable 2014. Here's to an equally amazing 2015!
