Well, we're here. A New Year. And we're truly chuffed (Brit for excited) about the potential for growth in our own sphere and hope our readers will join us in our enthusiasm as we evolve.
Now, if you're planning a New Year's bash, check out our THREE HOUR Party Playlist... a dance mix mashing up eras and styles. (I had a hard time staying at my desk while compiling it.) And do yourself a favor and check out my piece on why there's only ONE resolution you ever need to make....
And whether or not you're partying, our favorite wine connoisseur has compiled a great wine list to suit every occasion, budget and meal. Susanne Houfek's reflections on, and recipes for, her grandmother's famous ginger snaps remain tantalizing as we move into January.
Maybe you're still searching for some belated holiday surprises—cruise our great Gift Guides, including our personal favorite, the Gift Guide for Art Lovers - an astounding array of works I've curated, from classical landscapes and architectural abstracts, to oil paintings and cibachromes. But before you delve into some of my favorites, check out my story on How to Build an Art Collection at Any Price, it is an introduction to the fabulous new world opened up by online gallery Saatchi Art. (You might just find your deserving self a little something there too.)
Stay tuned and spread the word that Realize, the un-AARP, is on a tear, into the hearts and minds of that generation that we should rename Generation B.
