The backstory to this photo – taken at my mom’s house in Old Mission – is that we thought we had plenty of time before midnight (turns out we didn’t), so we were trying to figure out where everyone should be as I set up the self-timer on the camera, and all of a sudden the ball was dropping and everyone was running around like crazy. Except my mom. She’s always a cool cat.
Oh, and it’s also Tim’s and my 22nd wedding anniversary. The glasses we’re holding have the Park Place emblem on them. We got them 22 years ago during our two-day honeymoon at the Park Place Hotel in Traverse City. We always toast our anniversary and the new year with them.
