Every year, I write personal and professional resolutions. And unlike many, I often accomplish them. This year, I thought I’d try something different. I’ve been paying more and more attention to what I put in my body, and to that end, I want to try out some different ways of eating throughout the year. Some will stick; others (like going off alcohol) won’t, but in the long run, I know I’ll feel healthier and happier for it.

I’m a huge fan of Christmas (my husband? not so much). It’s all about traditions, and my family instilled a few in me that I’ve passed on to our son. Ever since I can remember, whenever we’d travel, we would pick up an ornament that would remind us of our travels. Starfish Santas from the beach. Cajun treats from Louisiana. When I left for college, my mother gingerly packed up the ornaments that were “mine” (including my first pick: a ceramic Wonder Woman I chose at age 3. Still my best decision ever) and I started my own tree-dition.
