February 21, 2015:
It was a pretty solid day from start to finish (well, minus the hangover I had).
My mom hosted a mini New Year’s lunch with my sister, my sister’s boyfriend, my cousin, and his daughter Evie. My mom made a ton of my favorites, like the mango appetizer with shrimp crackers and chicken stew with a ton of mushrooms. After that, we were just hanging out with Evie, and I finally got her to smile because apparently she likes taking selfies! She clung to her dad for most of the day, but there was a point when she crawled over and rested against me, and it was literally the highlight of my day.
