New Year's Resolutions + December Wrap-Up

2016 is coming upon us and it's time for those New Year's Resolutions. I love making lists and goals so I'm the type of person who makes resolutions for the year. I know sometimes I don't work on my goals the whole year, but I don't think I'll ever be deterred not to have at least one resolution.
