Here’s to a great start -2011-

Last night was the first time in 3 years that Darling, Ethan and I went out to watch fireworks at the stoke of midnight to usher the new year – 2011. Last year we planned to catch the fireworks display but Ethan just couldn’t stay up that late. 
For the very first time, we watched the fireworks display at midnight; hugged, kissed and wished each other a very Happy New Year! Ethan was all excited and climbed all over us, giving us non-stop kisses and kept on chanting, “Happy New Year! Happy New Year!” :D
And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair… remember it’s only in the black of night you can see the stars, and those stars will lead you back home – Whitey –
Just like stars, fireworks are best seen in the dark. When you think that all is lost and gone, the colourful bursts of fireworks reminds you that there is still that flicker of hope.. that life.. can be beautiful again, if only you don’t give up! – Merryn – 

2010 had come to an end. Here’s to a great start in 2011!
