We bid farewell to 2008 with fondue and fizzy and a low-key evening at home. We welcomed 2009 with a breakfast of black-eyed peas, collards and bacon topped with sunny-side eggs, strong coffee, and a round of Ramos Gin Fizzes.

Dinner tonight will be our traditional choucroute garni, prepared by my lovely husband. With bellies full of rich food, we’ll reflect on our last year, and look forward to what lies ahead.

Many thanks to all of you for spending 2008 with us here, for your support and encouragement during the difficult times we faced, and for celebrating the good times right along with us. May 2009 bring you health and much happiness.
