Ways to Better Me and My Family in 2013

Happy New Year!!  I hope that 2013 will be an amazing year for all of you!

Last year I tried a list of 100 things to accomplish in 2012, but by about April I pretty much quit doing it.  This year I am trying again, but with fewer goals for now.  I will most likely add to this list during 2013.  My goals this year are more specific, I separated them into different categories, and they are all things I have been really serious about the past few months.  As I accomplish items I will update my Ways to Better Me and My Family in 2013 page.  Here we go....

  1. Hey there! I just saw your comment on the interview I did over on Simple Delights. I was really encouraged that you agreed with me on the subjects og Motherhood! I have just become your newest follower. I think your blog is really lovely. Your new years resolutions are very honourable. I did the same over on my blog. Tis a good reminder through out the year to have them up on your blog for the world to see!
