Merry Merry!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to my friends and fellow bloggers. This year we were fortunate to be able to come home for the holidays for some rest and relaxation, good food, games, family, friends, and non-stop Christmas music. Check out my baby nephew, Jackson, who stole the show.

Have you made any New Year's Resolutions? This year I am renewing my "baking bread" resolution from last year. I got as far as baking naan, which has yeast (so it counts), but I never made an actual classic loaf of bread.

I'm also going to

1. sign up and train for a half marathon
2. make tofu from scratch
3. do a detox
4. improve my capacity to remember people's names
5. be funnier

What are some of yours?

Touring with my sister!

Recently my beloved little sister took a break from med school residency interviews to visit me and my husband in Israel. You better believe we crammed as much as we could into one week including Jerusalem (above), an after-hours soak in the Dead Sea (below #1), hanging out in Tel Aviv (Jaffa Port, below #2), and the Sea of Galilee (below #s 3 and 4). We also went to Bethlehem, Nazareth, Acre, and Haifa.

It's fun to experience new things with family, don't you think? So, when are you coming to visit?
