Happy New Year, everyone! A new year means a fresh start. I see people around me already making their resolutions and trying to make themselves better.

I don't normally make resolutions. I find that for most people, they are just empty goals. Lofty dreams. It's just something that you do each year. Then when you look bad, you feel bad about the things that you didn't accomplish.

However, this year, I've decided to set some goals. Most of them are small and easily achievable. They are things that I've been talking about doing and haven't done. They are things that will better myself, my family and my home. They are things that even if I only do a few times, I will have accomplished something good.

One of those! That's exactly what I typed down. Do I want to blog every day? No, not really. I know that's not feasible for me right now. But I want to make sure that I keep blogging. The last few years have been difficult for me to keep up with my writing and reviewing here. But I want to honor my commitments to companies who are sharing their great products with us.

I also want a place where I can share about things that are happening in my life. For the most part, I have kept that separate from this blog. That will change. Things have changed in my life. Having a new baby after 7 years has changed a lot of things for me and my family. So much about raising a baby has changed in 7 years. I am doing things differently in some ways this time. I would like to write about those things, so I can share with people who are like-minded or just interested in what I have to say.

For now I'm much better about sharing things on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook. So if you want to keep up with me, you can find me in those places. But I look forward to sharing and doing more here. I'd love to interact more with my readers too. I want to get to know you, so don't be afraid to leave a comment, tweet me, post on my Facebook wall.

And of course there will still be plenty of product reviews and giveaways to come!

Happy New Year!! I'm looking forward to what 2014 will bring.
