New Year’s Eve, 2011: Looking Backward
This year I made two important decisions regarding this blog. The first was to take off the first two months of the year. While I’ve been blogging since 2005, I realized that I was losing enthusiasm. So I stopped blogging, relying on Twitter for in-the-moment thoughts and observations. In March I started again, although I still didn’t really know what I wanted to do differently.
The second decision came in July, when I admitted (to myself, as well as the blogosphere) that I wanted to use this blog to write about our family, focusing more (although not entirely) on Baguette.
This is Not a Mommy Blog
On the other hand, it’s not like I stopped writing about things I eat, at home or in restaurants. In fact, one of my favorite posts for the year was entirely about food.
My Favorite Sandwich
As a nation, we commemorated the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
So, Where Were You?
I made a decision about how to get our house under control–we’re not done by any means, but I’ve stuck to this plan of taking a day off once a month, and it definitely helps.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I know a little girl who wants me to stop blogging and start snuggling. Happy New Year, everyone!
