How to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions….Or Not?

Hola Amigos! And amigas? I don’t know. Clearly I didn’t learn much in the way of Spanish during my week in Mexico. I’m sitting in the Acapulco airport as I type this, far too early for my flight, and really not ready to come home yet. I had most of my posts for December written […]
