So if your thermometer reads 7 degrees and all your trash has frozen... Read more »

Whew—we made it! 2013, done and dusted. 2014: beautiful blank slate. I always make a New Year’s resolution (or three. Why stop at one?).

I love New Year’s Eve. Love it. It’s not just the feeling of a year’s worth of blank-slate possibility—it’s the short-term prospect of major sparkle.

She knows, after all, that first impressions count. Whether she is heading... Read more »
