Tragic Sandwich

Food. Family. Fun.

New Year’s Eve, 2011: Looking Backward

Fireworks #1

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.

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.

I discovered Zazzle.
Stuff I Made

I opened up.
A Dream Come True

I shared what I think is a fantastic quote.
I Love Lucy (and Lucie)

I took a look at why the New York Times can be hard to relate to, regardless of one’s politics.
What I Wore

I opened up again.
It’s Not All Fun and Games

I took a look at holiday traditions.

And I took an even longer look back.

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