Hello, 2016! I’m back from Colorado (where my duck boots above came in very handy) and am so so excited for all of the fun to come this year (particularly the recipes – I spent yesterday cooking up a storm!).

I rung in the new year with family and friends in the mountains at my friends’ annual party and followed the evening shenanigans with a day at the spa (perfect for getting over that champagne headache). My friends and I did a leisurely lunch at Spago, spent a few hours horizontal in the grotto of the spa (jacuzzi = my jam), and then I seriously got the sh*t pummeled out of me (in a good way) by a masseuse who more-than-slightly resembles Mr. Clean. Seriously. I bruise easily and it looks like I got into a fight with a gorilla.

Like… I have bruises in my armpits. What?

So back to the point of this post: duck boots. Duck boots are a must-have in any wintery climate. I’ve had this pair (they’re the 6″ boots) for a few years and, before that, I had a pair of the mocs to get me through the tundra disaster that was my college experience in Ithaca. I love duck boots because they’re crazy durable and super crazy comfortable. They also run super big so I recommend sizing down – especially if you’re in between sizes. However, while L.L. Bean recommends sizing down 1-2 sizes, I definitely recommend only sizing down 1 size (to save room for those cozy camp socks!).

I hope y’all are having a wonderful Monday thus far and had the happiest of New Years!
