The start of a new year means rededicating yourself to whatever dreams, goals and objectives you want to achieve. For me, a new year happens twice annually - fall, when school is back in session, and Jan. 1. This year, my New Year's resolution is to attempt to establish realistic goals that I can reach over the course of the entire year, or at least that is my overarching commitment to myself.
The holidays are an extremely busy time of year for me, as they are for most. Between buying all the gifts, decorating, preparing for special Christmas Masses at church and attending all the kids' activities, it can get downright stressful! As an Italian, I also have the tradition of baking Christmas cookies. Each year we do anywhere from six to eight to 10 different kinds, which takes hours of work.
My husband took a road trip to Canada for my Christmas present this year - Niagara-on-the-Lake wine.
I received an Instant Pot for Christmas. So far, I'd give it a positive review.
In my last post I alluded to the fact I was finishing up a Christmas stocking for my son, a long tradition that started with my mom years ago.
