My Christmas cards ran into a few obstacles this year, but I love these backup “happy new year” cards from Minted.
Happy first Friday of 2014! I kind of fell off the blogging wagon (again) towards the end of the year (I’m blaming it on the holidays), but being better about blogging is one of my (many) resolutions for the new year. I have lots of healthy recipes on my “to make” list for the month, and Santa brought me a new MacBook Air (!!!!!), so hopefully this is a resolution I’ll actually keep. Others include:
Eating More Fruits and Veggies – easy to do when it’s satsuma season!
Reading More – Mindy’s book is a re-read, but so much funnier than I remembered. And so nice to read an actual book rather than a screen for a change (don’t worry, I have some more substantial reading on my list as well).
Trying New Places – in this case, delicious cocktails at the hip new(ish) Capitol Hill bar Witness.
OK, this isn’t a resolution, I just really love the new SmartWool socks my mom put in my stocking for Christmas (yes, I still have a stocking!). I’m generally not a sock person (I could wear flip flops almost year-round), but these keep my feet so warm and toasty, it’s impossible not to become addicted.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and that the new year is off to a great start. I’m looking forward to de-cluttering my apartment, hitting the gym with renewed vigor (despite the January crowds), and taking advantage of all the new beginnings this year has in store for me (I could definitely use a few). Here’s to a happy and healthy 2014 for all of us! If you have any book recommendations, recipe recommendations, or resolutions to share, I would love to hear them in the comments!
