Making Merry

Last night I attended a friend’s Christmas party.  Or as she called it “a holiday get-together”.

There were only ten couples there, most of whom I had never met.  The coolest couple was Jim and Bob.  This was the first time I ever encountered a same-sex couple and I certainly hope I encounter these two again in the future.  Aside from my friend, the host of the party, Jim and Bob were the nicest people.  Jim, a web designer by trade, is an expert at karaoke.  Bob is a chef and his cranberry-pear tart is to die for.  Plus I owe him a big “thank you” for introducing me to “sugared” champagne.

We’re already discussing getting together for New Year’s Eve.  Chinese food and “sugared” champagne?  Sounds like a great way to ring in the New Year!






I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
