Hope everyone's 2011 is off to a great start! I know January has brought snow to most of the US, so hopefully lots of snow now will mean an early spring (hey, a girl can hope, can't she?)
My new year celebration was very low-key. I stayed at my sister's with her, her S/O, my spouse, and of course Dick Clark. Quiet but fun ringing in the new year with just the four of us. I know there were a lot of great options for everyone to go out, but it just wasn't in the cards for me this year.
The next big excitement is, of course, First Event. Put on by the Tiffany Club of New England, First Event draws several hundred transgendered individuals and supporter from all over. It's held at the Marriott in Peabody, MA and between the workshops, vendor area, and evening activities there's definitely something for everyone. It also makes for a very friendly and supportive first time out for those that may currently be closeted.
This will be my 4th year attending First Event, and every year it just seems to sneak up on me. But now it's right around the corner, less than a week away, and I have to get myself in gear and decide what to bring with me. I will be with the Glamour Boutique booth again and have all my makeup with me ready to do makeovers on anyone who needs one. Makeovers are discounted for the event, and I hope that many of you will stop by and say hi even if you're not looking for makeup help.
