another new year, another chance

After two days indoors this weekend, I decided by Sunday it was time to get out of the house and that I did. Yesterday I trekked downtown to Chinatown for the Lunar New Year. Did I wear my snow boots? Yep. Did I still almost bust my butt? Yep. Black Ice sucks. But it was worth it. I haven't felt firecrackers in my chest like that in a long while. I love that feeling. That quick burst and then the sparkle to follow, I just can't help it. Love it. We got there later than most people though so we didn't really get the best of views to see the sparklers and the dancing dragons but it was still fun. Then it was time to warm up so we stopped by BabyCakes for coffee and a cupcake. So delish. Being vegan vegetarian in NYC is one of the easiest things! Especially after growing up in the South, where you get a side of meat with your main course of meat. You really appreciate that you can walk to the corner store and get a vegan deli sandwich. So back to the Chinese New Year… the Year of the Snake is believed to bring surprising changes to our lives. You should pay attention to the details and keep yourself focused to reach your goals this year. Plan accordingly and be ready for the unexpected! Also if you've missed your traditional New Year's resolutions, here is your second chance. Get to it. 

Happy {Chinese} New Year!
