Ahhhh, 2017. You’re here. Seriously, I can’t believe it. Before we get too carried away with the new year, let’s talk New Year’s Eve. How was your night?? I hope it featured plenty of champagne, and an adventure out on the town (if that’s your thing) or some quality time cuddled up at home with your very favorite people (if that is).

Have y’all started thinking about your New Year’s resolutions yet? I know, it’s already the second of January. I’m sure that by now you’re either knee deep in new habits, or have decided that, this year, the whole resolutions thing just isn’t for you. I’m actually still considering mine: what goals I want to focus on in the next few months, and what small tweaks to my daily routine might make a positive long-term difference. It always seems that resolutions started on the first don’t last very long, so I guess my theory is that if I kick them off a little later (and spend a couple more days really pinning down what’s important to me) perhaps I’ll be able to stick them out a little longer?! So maybe this is something that you’ll hear more about in a future post…
