It’s hard to believe it’s already going to be 2015…but here we are. With the end of every year comes reflections and celebrations — what went well, what went wrong, and how to start fresh for the new year. It’s amazing in this little mile square how many people and businesses come into our lives, leave us, or stay for the duration. Today we’re going to showcase our #HobokenGirl faves and the best of the best in Hoboken for the year of the horse {if you follow the Chinese Zodiac you know that’s 2014, duh}.
