New Year’s Resolutions – they’ve got a bit of a mixed reputation, haven’t they? You’ve probably heard people dismiss them, claiming they never work. The other day I asked my 12-year-old daughter what New Year’s resolutions she has and she told me none because they don’t work! So not sure where this belief comes from...

    I don’t really have any resolutions, but I do want to get back to eating keto again, and getting more active with stepping/walking again so I can lose the weight I need to.

      I like to think more about goals than resolutions really, and it looks like you have so many! I believe if we take daily small steps towards something we can achieve it. Good luck!ReplyCancel

    I wasn’t paying attention more for the self-care but I regretted it because now is all I needed. Working on making it a habit to give myself time for self care.ReplyCancel

      Okay, let me arrange my thoughts and try to get this post done. And believe me, it’s not the easiest thing to do with my daughter in the background singing, making annoying noises, asking me things, talking to herself and talking loudly to her toys! Actually right now the floor of my living room is...

        gnocchi recipe

        A while ago I did a little video of Amy baking some cupcakes. She really enjoys cooking with me, sometimes she helps me, and sometimes she is a bit of a pain, to be honest (hahahaha)  but when I have time I let her help me. On Sunday, since it was a rainy day, I...

            Sinceramente, uno degli aspetti che preferisco della mia professione e’ il piacere di venire a contatto (che sia per un’ora o per tutta la vita) con persone come voi. Grazie.

            Honestly, one of the things I appreciate most in my job, is getting to know families like yours. Thank you for the nice words.ReplyCancel
