Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year!! Thank you all so much for following Haute Americana during its inaugural year, and I am thrilled to continue the site’s evolution during 2012. As far as resolutions go, I’ve never really been one to partake in the practice, but this year I have little more incentive (this blog), so I will continue to purchase American made and share the amazing American made brands I find on H.A. with you! But first a little recap of how other Americans rang in the New Year all across the U.S. Enjoy!
