The year is already coming to an end and while most of our attention is focused on getting presents for everyone on our holiday list, we also get this time to make New Year’s Resolutions! Not only are resolutions a fun way to get ready for the new year, but they are also a great way to evaluate how well we did this past year, and decide what we want to accomplish in 2014.
