Just when I was getting used to writing “2014,” it's all going to change as we get ready to celebrate the New Year. I think this next one is going to be my best one yet because my family feels complete and my youngest is entering the fun age when he's walking, talking, and becoming his own person.

I have never really been one to celebrate with resolutions — I just feel like it's too much pressure — but I know so many benefit from making them. Common resolutions for adults seem to be working out more, eating healthier, and doing more of the things that make us happy.
