Meet your Portland Red Tricycle writers, bringing the best of the best parent stuff to you on the regular. Not only are they an uber-talented, hard-working crew, they’re also moms, dads and community-minded folks just like you –braving the throngs of hipsters at the latest food carts, composting everything, washing mountains of cloth diapers and stomping through thick mud in the rain to find the perfect holiday tree. Read on to find out what they’re hopeful for and working hard to accomplish in 2016. Happy New Year, Portland readers! We love you!

I actually love making resolutions. Keeping them is another story, but the act of making resolutions for the year ahead always gets me excited for the adventures to come. And in 2016, many of my resolutions are travel-related. Closer to home, I'm hoping to revisit British Columbia, Crater Lake, and Glacier National Park; on the international front, I'll hopefully spend part of the summer gallivanting around the Dolomites, Rome, and the Amalfi Coast. I also promise to go to the gym more, because why not? Happy New Year!

What’s your resolution for the new year? Let us know in the comments below!
