Accomplishments and Goals…


My birthday is coming up next week, it happens to fall in line when everyone else is taking a look back at the previous year and making goals for the coming year. I’m going to be the big three-eight… seriously, I don’t feel that old.

Anyway, I thought I’d take a look at the past year’s accomplishments and make a few goals for the coming year.

So, without further ado my accomplishments and goals…

Continue to try new foods; produce, recipes, and products
Continue to switch out conventional products for cruelty-free ones
Continue to strive to keep my family healthy and happy

Creating this list, I realized that my computer programming love has been set on the back burner for too long, I want to bring it back into the forefront.
