The new year has dawned upon us and is here to stay for another 365 days. Whether we like it or not, it's time to unglue ourselves from our lazy abodes, welcome early alarm clocks back to our lives and bid farewell to unlimited guilt free calories! Let's welcome 2018 with a zest of positivity and excitement to start fresh on our passions and ambitions. What goals will you be working towards this year or at least trying to, until one of us eventually gives up full 3 days in? Show us how you are welcoming 2018 in photos by entering our Welcoming 2018 Photo Challenge.
