I love resolutions! In fact, I’m a total aspirational lit/blog junkie, and spend way too much time reading about improving myself and somewhat less actually trying to do it.

No special traditions or rituals. But I do love calling my mother at midnight to wish her a very wonderful year. It’s a moment of great cheer and optimism.

I love a clean slate! Just thinking about my pristine new day planner makes me smile from ear to ear.

Aside from the bubbly and the beach, I love the sense of a fresh start. It’s like the slate has been wiped clean—just like the waves have refreshed the beach—and I can move on with new energy.

To be honest, New Years is my #1 favorite holiday of the year. (Well, after Thanksgiving because I love the food and family!)

I love to go out on New Year’s eve. I love all the cheesy things! The sparkly outfit, the champagne, everyone gathered together to watch the new year being rung in!

New Year’s is a very laid back kind of holiday after all of the Christmas rush. We do have certain foods—black-eyed peas for luck and collard greens for money.

Every year we go to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA (Longwoodgardens.org) as a family and spend the day (into the night) oohing and awing over the most amazing Christmas decorations I’ve ever seen.

I remember the Christmas I spent with my mom before she died. I had just gotten engaged to the lovely man who is now my hubby, and he was coming home with me for the holidays.
