  With South Walton full of fans who bleed orange and blue and others who bleed garnet and gold, many set out last weekend with their sights set on Pasadena's Rose Bowl Stadium. Among those making it to California were Nancy Abood and her son Brandon Ward, Judi Sikora, Shaye Smith, Greg and Beverly Schmitt, Jane and Marie Soloman, Mark and Paige Schnell, and Laura, Chan, and Caitie Cox. Wasn't that a great victory! This is an outstanding time to be a Seminole, or to just live in the state.

Before the bowl games began, however, we bid adieu to 2013.

New Year's Eve was a quiet one for me this year as I enjoyed a surf and turf dinner in, then a glass of wine at The Vue, and topped it off with a card game before watching the ball drop.

I saw Rick and Karen Schoonover, Jimmy and Et Clark, Bobby and Jane Beene, John Stasko, Summer Wheeler, Tim Cole, and Chef Gio at The Vue. Chef Gio's new caprese salad is divine.

Keith and RoseAnn Knight hosted an intimate dinner party with traditional German foods on New Year's Day at their beautiful Gulf-view home in Gulf Place. Sue and Bob Gurske were among those who enjoyed.  

Singer Tyson Ritter and actress Elena Satine chose Seaside as the site for their country chic New Year's Eve beach wedding.

Jon, Teri, and Jay Vice celebrated New Year's in New Orleans, and attended the Sugar Bowl.
