Why You Need to Try End-of-Year Resolutions

I have never been one to get into the spirit of New Years Resolutions. They never work and quite honestly, are vapid and empty promises to myself that taper down after a month or two. My husband recently brought up the idea of doing End of Year Resolutions instead, and it makes so much more sense to me!

We're Having A... !!!

I can’t believe I’m only just posting our gender announcement! We have known for a couple months now what we’re having and I think it makes it feel much more real. We already have a name picked out and have just finished up the registry too, building the anticipation and excitement even more!
