And another year ends

Did some mindless shopping. Do not even want to get into what happened this year. 2013 was about enduring the consequences or the fall out of 2012. i endured, and life continues. i am trying to tell the stories, but the words are difficult at this moment. i do not know if i can ever be candid as before about my life anymore. It is maturity, age, and also motherhood.  However, like humming a long forgotten song, i had this sudden urge to blog and did not have the time to care, or to think about doing it in another place. This is where i belong, warts, punctuation errors and all.

We have the New Year's party coming up at a friend's place. We decided to dress up and jazz it up with a lot of activities and games. Hubby has been driving me around for all the shopping. Took one selfie after another and shared with friends straight from the fitting room. Well, i realize you can live your life shallow like this, dressing up, dressing down and then planning what to wear for the next party or get-together. Some people do this not to go crazy, and find depth in the shallowness. Not getting me?!

Tomorrow will be another day, but for now, the night is young...

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
Than the sun ~ Fun, Some Nights

Which one did you finally go for?

I think the difference is in whether you are living to party or partying to live. :)

@Claytonia vices: The first one. And there are certain phases in life, when you do not know the difference. Not necessarily me.

@Abhilasha: Agreed. Will save it for another time.
@Manuscrypts: true that. Thanks for sharing the quote. Wish you the same.

I thought the 4th, 5th, and 6th from the left are truly classy and oscar night-ish. You should go for them next time? :) But also depends on whether the party you went for required/deserved it or not. :)
