Happy 2013! I hope everyone had a great break!
Over Christmas break, my husband and I moved into our new house.. and have been living without internet (or cable or phone) for the past two weeks… #darkages

Last year, I shared my favorite way to set goals for my business and blog. The biggest problem is that we don’t always keep those resolutions or even think about them after we make them in January.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday… mine is still going on as we are having Christmas with my Dad's family tomorrow. It was great to have a few weeks off and I feel refreshed and ready to take on 2011!
I wanted to share my New Year's resolutions with all of you, even though some are personal. I am definitely a goal-setter. I like to write down goals, post them somewhere I can see because what's more important than setting goals is checking in on your goals. If you set them and then forget.. there is no progress or reminders. Its important to check in and remind yourself what you want, whether its daily, weekly or monthly.
