Our little family headed to the beach on New Year’s Eve. The night before, we were lying in bed trying to figure out what we should do the next day to celebrate, and one very clear thought came to me: “I want to go to the ocean tomorrow.” So the next morning we bundled up, … Continue reading My Goal for 2017
