a New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and fantastic holiday! I can hardly believe we are on to a New Year. Not sure where last year went. I spent the New Years bowling with lots of kids and a few adult friends. I even made it to midnight! Like a lot of people I start the New Year off with many goals, hopes and a few dreams. After working really hard from Thanksgiving to Christmas I always seem to want to start the year off with getting back to eating right! This year I felt like I needed to detox my system a little. So I am doing a mostly vegetarian diet for 30 days. On week one I have done well. I will keep you posted! I hope during this somewhat slower period to make some changes to the blog and have some plans for some new ideas in the spring for MagPies, that I would like to work on. Of course, I dream to travel a little more, continue educating myself in the world of food and perhaps have some sort of restaurant venue fall in my lap. I know I am not asking for much.
What are your New Year's Resolutions?
The pictures above are from San Francisco. My kids have taken a liking to the big City. It is such a huge benefit of living where we do. We get to live in a small community but get the excitement of a "big city". The pictures above show the ice skating rink in Union Square. A much suggested trip, if you haven't done so. So much fun! The pictures where taken with my cell phone so not the best quality but hopefully you get the idea!
