Girl Stays Home For New Year's, Bakes Cookies

This just in: I decided to stay home this New Year's Eve. And it was great.

I’ve always secretly dreaded all the New Year’s hype. In fact, I can only remember liking one New Year's my whole life, when I kissed a guy I had crushed on for ages. This year, my apartment felt really cozy, and I really wanted to just cuddle up for a quiet night in. When I told Bean my plan to stay in, he said, “I wish I had that kind of courage.” Aside from being a homebody, apparently I am also brave!

So, while at home last night, I watched this...

And baked these...

And called him!

Hope you had a Happy New Year, too!

Just came across this post Joanna and it is one of my favorites! Really resonates with me though I haven't exactly done the same.

Jo, I wanted to go back and read your very first blog to see what it was like in the earliest days. seeing as yours has become one of my favorites, it is fun to watch how it has evolved over time. I would love to know more about your blogging beginnings and if you ever suspected yours would become so huge:) cheers!

I stayed home last year, alone, and watched 'Easy A.' After a hard year full of major change, it was a welcome, peaceful end and beginning.

So nice to read your first post. :)

It's really fun to see how this first blog entry sounds so different from who/where you are right now... but also so comfortingly the same. Go you!

Loved reading your first post, as I've been reading your blog for a few years now. I started my blog when my tv production job ended (As The World Turns was cancelled 2 years ago).

My blog has lead to my current job in social media and community management and freelance writing gigs, such as CBS New York.

Your lovely blog has been an inspiration for your fellow NYC blogger girls :)

This wasn't actually your first post, though. What happened to the 2006 posts you deleted?

This wasn't your first post. You started blogging before this. I know because I still have some of your posts saved.

I remember you from the SARK days and oh, how you've changed. Congratulations on the success that you so roundly deserve. Well done.

Courtenay S said...

I've got to say that is FAR superior to my first post...I almost want to go back and change my first post! Is that cheating?!!

Hi Jo! I've been a behind-the-scenes follower of your blog for a couple of years now. Kudos on your success! I've finally taken a stab at starting my own blog, focusing on connecting women who are debating the "should I, or shouldn't I" of working after baby. If you have any interest, I would love any candid feedback. www.smilingmommy.com

Happy fall!
