Also from last month's Real Simple

I admit it. I have an addiction. However, the more I've thought about how sad I'll be to see my law school friends scatter (especially since my older friends have long since scattered) and how I'm unlikely to find a place I can afford for next year that has enough room to host my family for a major holiday... the more I've started to enjoy the idea of throwing a New Year's party next season.

I think it would be fun to get people together when we should all have some sort of vacation. It could be a lot of fun and more relaxed than the normal festivities. I love the idea! AND Real Simple seems to realize the greatness of the idea. They had an article on it, and included this super-cute card idea. Everyone at the party writes down their resolution-esque fill-in-the-blank thoughts, such as "The person I want to be more like this year is ___." I don't want to forget this!
