2018 definitely ended in an amazing way. Em and I took the car down the Peninsula to celebrate it at Portsea Hotel. We were lucky enough to stay with a family friend of her’s in Rye. It was such a lovely little escape for over New Year’s.
The day started with a workout by the hill where we do hill sprints on Sundays with the Crossfit crew (I usually opt for the track but do try to go once in a while for the challenge). It was a sweaty session and it just felt great to get a workout in before the New Years festivities begun.
We got to Rye with a couple of hours to go before the party and took the opportunity to sit in the sun for a bit. It was hot!! When we had enough we went inside to get ready. It was nice to for once take the time to get properly ready and dressed up. I usually do it in like 20 min or so but this time we spent over an hour curling our hair and doing our make up whilst having some drinks. Fun to be a bit girly for once! Rarely ever happens.
New Years at Portsea Hotel was really good. Plenty of drinks and met a fun bunch to hang out with who were also down from Melbourne for New Years. The view from the terrace over the ocean was stunning! Around midnight Em and I decided to go to see the crew from the gym who were also down in the same area. I had missed them so it was good to see them.
Just before two we were back at the house smashing some food because we were starving and then headed to sleep. A pretty fun start to the year.
