No, I’m not getting married (sorry mom), and that’s not my baby (again – sorry). In lieu of the obligatory blog post about New Year’s resolutions, I’m sharing two things that have already gotten my new year off to a nice start: I’m back in New York and I have a beautiful new goddaughter.
New York is, indeed, my something old: I grew up on Long Island, went to school upstate and spent 11 years living in Manhattan and its boroughs. I’ve been back here for nearly a month, and let me tell you, Dorothy was spot-on – there really is no place like home.
Bella Marie Clinton, my family’s something new, is the closest thing to perfection I’ve encountered in a long time. If I make one resolution, it will be to spend as much time with her as possible (I never do seem to lose that last 10 pounds or stop drinking so much wine, anyway).
Wishing everyone a safe and wonderful New Year – may you sleep peacefully in your favorite place.
