We rang in the New Year pretty uneventful. Some loud cheers, dancing in the living room and a kiss at midnight was what we mustered up.
We visited one of our best friends in Charlottesville, VA. We had a great time, like we always do with him. We explored the town, went out to breakfast, and took a day trip to Roseland. The Roseland day trip was quite eventful, we got turned around and went the wrong direction for some time before realizing that we might be going in the wrong direction. A couple hours later, an ice cream pit stop, and a lot of quality time together, we arrived, just before the sun set over the hills. We spent the evening by a huge fireplace eating food and enjoying some yummy drinks at Devils Backbone Brewery.
February was by far our worst winter month. It was filled with snow, rain, ice, freezing temperatures, and more rain. The entire state seemed like it was one big ice skating rink. We watched a lot of Parks and Rec. and British Murder mystery shows.
In March we went to an all Beethoven recital by the wonderful Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes at McCarter Theater in Princeton. Bear loved it and I appreciated the talent that he had. Incredible.
We also cheered for the Gators during March madness. We don’t have cable so we watched most of the games at our local pizza parlor.
On the first semi warm day the local ice cream shop opened, and you bet we went and tested out a few flavors.
For Easter Bear brought home the most gorgeous bouquet of flowers I've ever seen.
