New Year's Eve

This New Year's Eve, Sarah and I got married again. It was one of the happiest things I've done in a long time.

I've been going through some hard stuff personally lately, and before we went to New York for Christmas, I came up with the idea of sort of informally restating our feelings for each other as a good way to start a new year off on the right foot. So Friday night, after smudging the apartment with sage, we put on our nice clothes and stood together holding hands and told each other what was in our hearts. And then we put our wedding rings on each others' fingers again and we toasted each other with champagne.

I think it may have been the best New Year's Eve I've ever had, and I think I want to do this every year. I feel ready to start 2005.

We drank champagne and watched Regis make an utter trainwreck out of Times Square's 100th new year's eve celebration. It was a simple way to spend an evening but I can't think of a better way to have spent it, or another person I'd like to have spent it with more.

To Sarah, for 2005 and all the coming years: I love you, and that will never change. Let's make every year better than the last.

I think that getting married more than once to the same person is one of the most romantic things ever.

Re: A trainwreck?!
He was just generally dull, and he often didn't seem like he knew what he was doing. It was almost painful to watch him. Luckily, we could generally tune him out and just pay attention to (er, make fun of) the various singers and other random people.
