Nearly six weeks ago, I shared this picture with you.

I am writing for Las Vegas Woman, and my first article focuses on living a healthy, balanced life well past the first few weeks of January. If you’d like to read the article, you can click here and check out pages 62-63!

I love the feeling of a “new beginning” and have a few goals myself, such as eating more veggie-centered meals (with tons of bacon, of course) and cleaning as I go. Mr. How Sweet isn’t quite sure how he feels about this, since the first one makes him sob but the second elates him.

Never a dull moment in this house.

    Sound like good resolutions to me that aren’t too outrageous! I’m aiming for the general resolution of trying new things: Last year I figured out that I do, after all, like tomatoes and avocados. Who knew. So new foods and new recipes will for sure be included in that! Beyond that one, I’m just going to try to find some kind of better cure for hangovers. haha

    Congrats!! So exciting :) I just did a New Years post for the site Mama Moderne last week… it’s about trying one new thing every month, as my resolution. I did it a few years back (as a single gal) and learned so much about myself! I have decided to bring it back now (as a mama), so I don’t get lost in the world of baby ;).

    Congratulations!!! Although I’m the exact opposite of you on the veggie matter (I love lloooovvvee me some veggies!), I just KNOW that I have to resolve to clean up as I go so I don’t drive Ryan nuts about kitchen messes (and bathroom…and laundry…and our bedroom…and living room…you get the picture!)

    Hi Jessica. Congratulations on the article. I discovered your blog a little while ago and was only just reading some of your archives over the Christmas break including your post on desperately wanting to write. It must feel great that your dream is becoming a reality. You have definitely inspired me to start writing in my own blog more regularly. Keep up the fabulous work.
