Hello, 2018!

As the clock is winding down, and we are officially bidding 2017 goodbye, DON’T dwell on the negative things that happened this past year! I know, it’s easy to do- because we preface it with “The new year is going to be so much better because….”, and then you remember and relive all the negative […]

Divorce and the Holidays
