5 New Year’s Resolutions All Moms Should Make

Resolution (res-o-lu-tion) – noun. A firm decision to do or not do something. It’s that time of year when we all think about what we want to achieve in the next 12 months. Lose weight, decrease debt, exercise more… you know the usual rundown. Only a small percentage of people actually keep their resolutions, so this year, I’m challenging […]
