New Year's Eve in Detroit

I had an amazing time back in Detroit. It was fantastic to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and have an amazing time in the process! I missed so much about America and was in shock almost the entire time I was back. Thank you to everyone who took time out to see me!

I'll try to keep this post abbreviated since it's not a really blog about America.  

We were tagging leave (military jargon for vacation time) on to the beginning of a work trip for Joe, so making it home for Christmas just didn't happen. We arrived just in time for New Year's Eve and had big plans at the Fillmore with one of my best friends, Shea, and her cousin, Syd! We had dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (Sawasdee Thai on Haggerty Road) and reminisced on all the high school dinners we shared in that same spot. Then, we proceeded to Detroit and set up shop at the Ren Cen to primp and catch a shuttle to the NYE party. 
All dressed up with the girls!

The party was amazing! They had fire dancers, acrobats, rope dancers, live DJs, great drinks....more than I could have asked for!

Very inviting!
They are hanging by ribbons, no big deal.
Needless to say, much fun was had by all! I would love to go next year if we have a chance to be in Michigan.
