New Year’s Resolutions!

January 3, 2017


By: Hannah Peerbolt, Property Manager

I personally love the thought of New Year’s Resolutions, filling the beginning of each year with hopeful expectations and dreams of excellence coming soon. Every year I set lofty goals for myself for the upcoming 365 days (lose 15 pounds, exercise every day, win the lottery, buy a popcorn machine, learn how to make killer sushi, etc.…), and not once have I accomplished all (if any) of my New Year’s Resolutions. Perhaps I need to be more realistic, or maybe I just need to keep reaching for the moon and one day I’ll catch it! As we start this new year, I thought I’d give you a list of some fun New Year’s Resolutions/Bucket List items to make your 2017 an unforgettable year in Grand Rapids.
