Welcome to 2017 everyone! We are happy to be here, and, according to Twitter, so is 99% of the rest of the population. What about resolutions? Did you make any? (Don’t say you’re cutting out the sugar. We don’t like to hear that around here. :) ) We saw that dieting. and eating healthy was the number one resolution set this year. (We pretty much make that resolution every Monday, all year long. By Friday, we’re back to pizza and ice cream.) Following close behind the whole healthy eating thing, was working out more, and losing weight. (No surprise there.) Saving more/spending less, quitting smoking, reading more, finding a new job, quitting drinking, spending more time with friends and family, and finding a new hobby (and/or learning a new skill) all also rank up there as top resolutions. We’re falling into the learning something new group this year…we have a few things on our list but, we thought we’d kick off the new year, on our blog, with something kind of fun. (And, learny.) Have you even seen how jelly beans are made? It’s kind of a fascinating process–and, thanks to Jelly Belly, we have a cool video to share. (It’s worth the six minutes. Besides, if you’ve resolved to learn new stuff this year too, you have to commit. Or, if you’ve resolved to be healthier, watching is better than eating. :) )
Anyway, no matter what you resolved to do this year, you can do it. Don’t be one of those folks who cave in right way. We have faith. :) Good luck and happy 2017!
