Fireworks for the new year

Earlier this week, I promised the admissions staff would return today with resolutions in place.

Here we are and here are our resolutions!

  • Embrace the moment, the now, the present.  And….stop eating so much chocolate 
  • Reduce and then eliminate processed foods from my family’s diet
  • Stop drinking water right before I go to bed…I’m so tired of walking into things during my many nighttime bathroom trips
  • Hike 150 miles over the course of this year
  • Try to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. I don’t need to constantly be doing something
  • To create the perfect Instagram filter
  • Make more time for my family and buy a house
  • Avoid camera tickets
  • Stick to my resolutions!

What are your resolutions for the new year? May I make my annual suggestions?

How about:

Happy New Year!


We really enjoyed sharing our resolutions last year.

So much so, we decided to do it again!

  • Live in the present and stop worrying so much
  • Break my Candy Crush Saga addiction

Did you make any resolutions this year? May we suggest a few?

How about:
