I love your list.So many things on there are ones for me too - table {though I want to find an old one already built;)}, get into bees - something I'd love to do in the future on our new block, saying yes more to my son and those I love and so many others too. I didn't do resolutions this year but I really love your list idea.

  18. I've been working on staying away from the computer as much as possible. It's actually really hard. I like that one of your goals is meal plan. That is super important if you want to eat healthy on a regular basis.
