Happy New Year! 2017 was an absolutely insane, bat shit crazy kinda year for me with lots of ups and downs. Mostly, it was pretty great! I’m hoping for an even better 2018 and can’t wait to start gettin’ all hardcore with my resolutions! More about that in a minute… For this New Year’s, I went the route of spicy margaritas (will be a future post for sure), however, to start the afternoon off on the right foot, I opted to make Poinsettia Cocktails, and of course styled them with some of my beautiful New Year decor! If you’ve never had these, they’re basically cranberry mimosas but stronger and better! Cheers to that!
Okay, so back to my resolutions. This year, I’m keepin’ it simple. I am looking for a greater sense of self awareness. I want my mind, body, and soul to be as healthy as possible so that I may be more authentic to my true self. I know, this almost sounds too cheesy/airy fairy for me to even write or say out loud, however, it is definitely what I mean. Time to get my bod back to where it was last year, hit the gym… HARD, practice yoga and meditation in the morn, if only for 20 minutes, cut calories and keep up with more plant-based cooking, and take time to focus on my cookbook, and my new book about my most favorite subject, G-dog. This will be a follow-up to, “One More Sip of Whine.” Regarding that book-o-la, I hope that 2018 is crazy kind to her and puts her out in the world with great success! Okay, so maybe that doesn’t sound so simple to you, but with the year I’ve had, that’s pretty simple to me! Wanna join me in my resolutions? I’d love the company!
I hope everyone had an amazing holiday! Back to work tomorrow, sigh… Two weeks off has been suh-weeeeet! Enjoy the New Year!
