On this first full week of 2014, I am grateful for fresh starts. The excuse provided by the holidays and year end to reset, rest, and reflect on the year behind us and the one to come couldn't have come at a better time. I, like most people I know or bumped into buying last minute Christmas dinner ingredients at Whole Foods, was tired by the end of January. 2013 was a hard year! begin quote

It was perfect to start at our new office, with a full day of strategic planning for the month and year to come. And then to have several meetings confirming and enhancing various aspects of that plan. And now to be watching the unexpected snow accumulate and moving the plan forward already.

So here's to fresh starts, bold beginnings, and the genius, magic, and power they bring!
