One of my New Year's resolutions is to stop saying a "sorry" that's empty, apologize fully when it's appropriate and to do my part to shift our culture of meaningless or non-existent apologies. Anyone else up for that?
The fact that I'm a parent does not obviate my need to reassess, re-evaluate and continue to craft my goals and resolutions, and while I can't say with 100 percent certainty, I am pretty sure they involve more than getting dressed.
I've certainly got my work cut out for me for 2012! But I feel like with enough determination and homemade moonshine and the right pair of heels, anything is possible. Here's to all of you having a wonderful new year.
Every once in a while, everyone has a bad year -- whether it's economic or tragic. Let's just say I'll be very happy to close the books on this one and start over again. Which is why I love New Year's so much: It's a fresh start, a chance to start over.
I have discovered that if you adhere to a few common-sense guidelines as you totter through the seasonal minefield of office parties, neighborhood potlucks and family get togethers, you can feast and frolic without incurring an excessive shroud of post-holiday guilt.
