Happy New Year!

2013 is finally upon us, and with a new year, comes new resolutions. We (sometimes!) enjoy motivating ourselves to change in healthy ways. What ways are you creating positive, lasting change in your life this year?

New Year Resolutions…

The Good and The Bad

Personal Note…

I’m in-a-pinch

So we are back from Christmas and getting into the routine of things. It took the Best Family a bit longer this year since my parents were with us until the middle of January. They were supposed to leave a few days earlier, but their flight back to Newfoundland was cancelled due to snow. Not the small, insignificant amount of snow we got a few days ago; I mean real snow – all 70 cm of it! I really cannot complain when it snows in Vancouver…

Christmas also brought about a Best Family revelation. The secret to getting the boys to listen and follow instructions? Apparently, they will do just about anything for a small TicTac, especially the orange flavour! Now I have a solution when I’m in-a-pinch!

Business of the Month…

Blumen Floral Boutique

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this month’s featured business is Blumen Floral Boutique. Mike Dreher ensures his customers receive efficient service and quality floral bouquets that aren’t tired or boring. Blumen specializes in wedding flowers, and they are the proud recipients of the award “Best Booth” at the Westin Bayshore Wedding Fair, the largest wedding show in BC. Read More >>

I hope that your New Year is off to an excellent start! Remember, if one of your resolutions is to get financially fit this year, we are here to help. Let’s make 2013 the Best year ever!

Coming up next month

Looking to beat the winter blues but trying to stick to a budget? Most can't afford to drop everything and run off to the Caribbean for a weekend. Why not host a dinner party?
