A New Year's Flashback Friday!

Me and my "gang" back on New Year's Eve in '84. Yes, the 80s were Rad, and so were we! But really, we were young and had so many dreams about the future. The 80s was such a weird time-- girls just wanted to have fun and we all had to fight for our right to party, and things were pretty good. (Had I only known!) Some good decisions were made, probably more bad decisions were made, but I don't think that young woman looked into her future past her 30s. My 40s were rough, emotionally, but I've found the beginning of my 50s to be quite liberating. So, money wise, things suck, but on a personal level, it's good. Therefore, no resolutions because no one ever sticks to them anyway--another thing we discover as we grow older-- but I'm going into 2016 with hope and tentative optimism (which may be challenged as the primaries develop!). Happy New Year, my friends!

:-) 1984 is the year I got pregnant with the twins. Talk about a life changing event!

-new follower here--you had me at 'Bratwurst'. Also, I think I have a similar-looking 80s NYE picture somewhere in my desk drawer.
