This year I spent Christmas here in NYC instead of traveling. While I certainly missed being among family and friends for the holidays, It was nice to get a chance to kick back and have a relaxing break from the usual hustle and bustle of my day-to-day in the city. I sent out cards, wrapped presents, caught up on all my TV shows and got a lot of "out with the old in with the new" cleaning up done before the new year.
2013 was a fantastic year for me and I couldn't be more grateful for it. I got my first drill, reupholstered our mini bar, visited Martha's Vineyard and Asbury Park for the first time, made a surprise visit to PR for my dad's birthday, got my very own KitchenAid mixer (Thank you Riki!), helped launch two new wines and got a promotion at the end of the year. I truly don't know how I am going to top that but I'm certainly looking forward to more adventures and new projects in the year ahead... and speaking of new adventures, we'll soon be looking for a new apt and planning a trip to Hawaii.
Bring it on 2014!
