Pause those "TO DO" lists. First thing for the new year, be healthy. I've been fighting a virus for about two weeks and almost everyone I know is in the battle to stay healthy! When I'm forced into a bit of a respite when feeling sick, I'm reminded of these things: 1) Doing nothing... can heal you.…

Hey!  Don't forget to send me a gift!  The gift I want from each one of you is below...I'm sending this message from the North Pole!  Well, not really.  I'm hanging out here in NYC for the holidays and loving how empty it suddenly got on the streets! As I put on the hostessing hat…
