We hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We wish all of you your best year yet. And we look forward to ours!
As we quickly approach February and say goodbye to January, it seems a good time to do a (quick) pulse check on our New Year resolutions. Ugh, I had to say it didn’t I? The dreaded “r” word! If you’re giving me five seconds to magically change the subject before you shut me down then I’m guessing one of your resolutions centers around eating healthy/weight loss … somewhere in that distressing realm of topics that we hate to talk about. No need to fret though!
