I haven’t actually set resolutions for YEARS and obviously, you can tell that I didn’t exactly get around to doing this on New Year’s day when it’s typically done. I wasn’t planning on any resolutions, but then I realized that now, I get the opportunity to start making memories and traditions with our first child. If we start now, I’m thinking, we might be able to keep it up when life gets even busier or there are more children. Only if we’ve made them traditions or priorities and I tried to make them specific goals. So here’s to setting some family priorities this year to fill it with great memories! What would you add to the list to help make great family memories? I’d love a few more suggestions.
