An old Italian custom encourages to throw your old things out the window to symbolize your readiness to accept the New Year. Being a true fashionista and an admirer of Italian style, I spent the last day of this year cleaning out the 2009 closet. While my friend was soaking her feet in the Pacific ocean, I sipped mojito and enjoyed sunny December 31st at George’s in La Jolla, CA. I decided to leave all my heartaches, broken promises, unfulfilled dreams, and tears in 2009 and get ready for a new adventure in 2010. Life is too short and too beautiful to be spent in misery. Nothing could affect my spirits. Not even a phone call from my past that I was trying to escape…..
Later that night we joined our friends at the W in downtown San Diego. The crowd was rather interesting and I only wished I had my camera to capture the mess at a well-known hotel. However, after a few drinks I danced the night away, embracing 2010.
The next day we explored San Diego and stumbled upon Balboa park with several museums, restaurants, and small houses that represented different countries.
After doing some shopping and damaging our bank accounts, we met our friends in Basic for delicious pizza and drinks. The place is simple, perfect for lounging, dancing, and having a good time till 2 AM. Oh, did we drink!
This trip was exactly what I needed – drama free, sunny, relaxing atmosphere. I felt cured and ready to conquer the year of 2010. Happy New Beginnings!
