There are so many things that pass through my mind as “Oh my gosh, I need to do/try that!” and I always lose track of them. So this year, as my New Year’s resolution, I am going to keep a running list here and cross things off as I get to them. Hopefully it works out and by this time next year, I can look back and feel like I got a lot done.
