Jan. 1 – Stroke of Midnight

Daily Prompt 1/365: Where were you at midnight last night? Would you have wanted to be anywhere else?

We welcomed the new year from the top of Parliament Hill, with fireworks and the cheers of revelers rising up all around us. I could smell gunpowder, wet grass and booze on the air. Jake’s arms were around me, the sky was clear all the way across London, and I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else in the world.

On new year’s eve, I like to take the time to reflect on the year that has passed and set my sights on the year to come. Away from the crowds and the noise, I can focus on the mistakes and achievements of the previous 12 months and resolve to keep going the best I can over the next 12.

In the past year, we have come so far. I am so excited to see where we go.
