Dessert Before Dinner and Other Habits To Break

Rules were made to be broken, and so were New Year's Resolutions right? This is why I didn't make any this year. No "do more of this", or "try harder at that".  No more results oriented goals. This is why I didn't pen the typical New Year's blog post at all either. This year, I'm …
