A new year has begun! As everyone posts their sad farewells or good riddance to 2015 on social media outlets, their blogs, in life over cocktails you can’t help but think about your own thoughts on the previous year. And while 2015 was a non stop exhausting year, it had to have been the most productive, exciting, and successful year in my life thus far. In brief, I booked a play, I booked my first major string of commercials, I became debt free, I ran the NYC marathon, I started this lovely little blog, and most importantly, I planned my wedding and got married to the best guy I know. I’ll also expand when our one year anniversary hits but man, I love being married, I LOVE IT.  I am very very grateful for 2015 and while I didn’t have as much down time, I look back and feel like I was able to accomplish a lot.

Merry belated Christmas! The weekend comes to an end and all of a sudden it’s Monday again, like the joyous holiday didn’t even happen. Oof. Post Christmas Monday. I have a theory that I want to sell a beer called The Monday’s so when you have a case of them, it ain’t so bad.

Spending the holiday with Phil was wonderful, low key, full of friends and food and wine and card playing.  I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Close friends of our were kind enough to host a late brunch on Christmas Day. Like a good guest, I thought about what to bring as part of the feast.  I settled on a berry galette.

A successful weekend holiday party full of friends and booze and dessert! We watched A Very Murray Christmas and agreed it was weird and wonderful.  It was also fun to make a few desserts I hadn’t tried to tackle and just made my friends the guinea pigs for all of them.  I finally attempted a cheesecake. I love cheesecake and I’d been wanting to try and make one for a while but needed a reason to do it.  This party was it.  What I loved is that I replaced your usual vanilla extract with almond extract. The flavor change up was a nice surprise and complimented the cranberry swirl.
