  • We listened to music, cooked dinner, and laughed at our inside jokes. When the clock struck 12, we ran around the room in a frenzy hugging and kissing each other. Wishing each other a happy new year. We took photographs. Recorded the fireworks on our phones. Cut a cake and kissed and hugged each other some more.
