This is the time of year when everyone is making resolutions. We feel as though the new year has given us a new lease on life, a blank page on which we can write whatever we'd like. It's a chance to transform yourself and your relationship. I opted to share a photo of my son sporting 2013 glasses because my relationship resolutions are tied up in him. I've decided that I want to be the happiest I can be for my son. If I'm happy, I'll be a better mom and wife. To be happy, I think I must first decide that I want to be happy. Then, I have to make the best of whatever rolls my way. In the coming year, I will be spending more time with my in-laws, trying to find time for my spouse and myself, and navigating parenthood in a way that supports my marriage and family. It won't always be easy. My husband and I will have countless opportunities to work against each other; instead, we must unite and help each other. After all, isn't that what love is all about? How about you? What resolutions are you making?
