Well, here we are, at the end of 2016. This year has certainly been a year of ups and downs for lots of folks, myself included.
A stressful transition into a new role at work was fortunately offset by lots of laughs with good friends, like the time we went on a midday wine crawl, the birth of my adorably chubby niece Gwendolyn, and one amazing 6-week sabbatical trip spent traveling. Those memories help me look back on the year with a fond smile and gratitude for all that I have, incredible friends, a loving family, and the opportunity to do fun things like this blog. And of course, overeating tons of good food, the highlights of which I’m sharing with you today.
