We are already a week into the new year. This year, I didn’t decide to do any kind of resolution. Instead I have chosen a list of eighteen things I want to get done in 2018. Some of these things are super simple (I want to take a Pilates class), or pay off my credit card (I don’t really carry much of a balance), but some take a lot more….I’m going to take a big international trip. What would you put on your list of eighteen?
