    A Fresh Start | 2018 Resolutions

    For the first time in several years I can’t say I’m sad to see a year end. 2017 was a doozy. It was honestly one of the most challenging years of my life. When I look back at my resolutions from last January, I left a lot unaccomplished. And that doesn’t feel great.
