New Year's Resolutions...

It's that time of year again, the time when we all make our New Year's resolutions!! I'm sure you all have your lists ready so that way when the big ball drops you'll have goals to look forward too. I've been thinking long and hard about my list this up-coming year. Every year I do the same old thing... "lose weight", "eat better", "no soda", "save more money". All of those are probably on your list as well, or at least something similar. As I was thinking about those things I realized that I wanted to go further instead of doing the usual lists. I wanted to make a resolution list I knew I could attempt and have some sort of success with. It's always a fresh start with a new year and I'm hoping that this new year will be a big one for me.

**2012 Resolutions**
-Get closer to God.
-Get closer to my husband.
-Get closer to my children.
-Learn how to knit and crochet.
-Read more with my children.
