Setting Realistic Goals & a GIVEAWAY!1.27.2016

in the past i used to set these HUGE, unrealistic goals for myself at the start of each new year and would get so overwhelmed by them toward the middle of January that i completely gave up and said i would try better next year.
fast forward to now, 2016, and i once again have some things i want to work/improve on in my and my families' life. but this time, i really am determined to stick with it! even it is almost february. ha! so i decided to scale things back a bit and really work on setting realistic goals that i knew i could ace.
so, to make sure i actually was successful at this venture, i decided to figure out what the two most important things were to me right now, and focus on just those. at first, i thought this would be hard to do because there are just so many things i always want to work on.
but the more i thought about it, i realized that the two things i'd been thinking about most recently were ways to improve the moments when my family sat down to eat meals, and how to better manage my time as a mom.
two HUGE goals, but ones i felt were great when it came to my task of setting realistic goals because i could easily manage them and work on them in baby steps. plus, i knew i wouldn't have 500 other goals that i had worry about focusing on.
if these are two things that you want to work on too, here's how we're doing it.
