What are your New Year’s resolutions or what is your favorite thing to do in the winter? | Contributor Q&A

One of my new year’s resolutions is to spend more time at my home. That probably sounds really silly, but I like to be busy and keep myself highly scheduled. I just put up my calendar for November (we write a few months ahead for the magazine) and there are only three days in the whole month that are unplanned. So my resolution is to try to stay at home a few nights a month and actually wash and put away my laundry in the same evening or something crazy like that.
