    Linda made a New Year's resolution to slim down

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Linda made a New Year's resolution to slim down. She could not keep it, but that didn't bother her at all because soon she married a handsome man.

    Sounds fine to me.

    Maybe omit the word "soon". It seems a little out of place.

    It lacks a final punctuation mark.

    Thank you.
    For some reason, the "Thank" does not function after the forum has been upgraded this morning. I hope this is just a small bug which will disappear.
