the ups-and-downs and sides-to-sides of the little things that make up life
I have one deal breaker. Mae West says kissing is a man’s signature. Signature or not, it also tells you everything you need to know about a man. 1 Year, 10 Projects, 100 Discoveries started with 10 Guys, 10 Weeks, 10 Drinks. The sequel is 10 Kisses, 10 Tastes. This post is part of that project. You can see all 10 kisses here and the entire project here. Get ready to pucker up, I am!
Every year, there’s one kiss that’s the most talked about, the most fretted over, the most planned. For some people, it sets the stage for the entire year. For others, it doesn’t matter who the kiss is with, just that it happens. Still, others could care less.
Most years, I fell into the latter category. But, this year was different. This year, I knew who I wanted for my last kiss of 2011 and my first kiss of 2012. I also knew that this kiss would be Kiss #10 in my project. It had quite the trifecta to live up to.
The setting was the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan. The skirt was sparkly, the earrings big and the heels high. And the man? Well, the man was impeccably dressed in a baby blue that brought out the blue in his eyes and a jacket that hugged his perfectly muscled arms.
Sharing the first kiss of a new year is special. Like your very first kiss, you never forget who you were kissing when the clock strikes midnight and the ball drops. With 57,000 fireworks as the backdrop, the kiss was long and lingering. It was filled with love, excitement for the future and the taste of fresh apples. As my very first “real” holiday kiss, I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect setting nor anyone else for it to be.
