Hello 2016! It’s been forever since I’ve posted anything (oops!) but I’m happy to be back. The holiday season didn’t whip by as it usually does and I found the time to move at a nice pace. Andrew and I brought our families together for Christmas dinner this year which was a new experience for everyone . . . happy to say everyone got along and the whole thing was really nice.

We spent New Year’s Eve lakeside in a lovely Muskoka cottage we rented with our best friends. We rang in 2016 by the fire with champagne and oysters and I loved the quieter evening. Don’t get me wrong, we danced all night and had a blast but it was so much more enjoyable than being in the city and dealing with cabs and covers. Cottage country was just the ticket.

LOOKING AHEAD . . .

With a new job and a new home, things are finally starting to feel settled in. I have plenty of goals (thirty of them, actually) and a long list of accomplishments I want to achieve this year – happy to report I’ve made some major progress so far.

This year is all about health for me. Andrew and I eat pretty healthy as it is, but lately my entire attitude towards food has changed. I think living in France played a pretty large role because I had the time to not only learn how to cook but also learn to enjoy it. I’ve been running regularly and am avoiding sugar and processed foods. I wouldn’t call this a diet, but rather I’m trying to make real changes to live a better and longer life.

And you know me, I always have a few tricks up my sleeve. There will be lots of changes coming to this space in the next year, as well as an exciting new direction I can’t wait to share with you!

What are your goals for 2016? 

To the best year ever,
