Welcome to 2015!
Happy New Years! As we kick off a brand new year, we hope you are enjoying a break from the daily routine. And, truly take a moment to reflect on all of the good things from 2014. Take time today to write down what you feel most proud of. Additionally, what you hope to truly commit to focusing on in the year ahead.
It has become one of my favorite traditions to share an item from both of those lists with my family as we gather around our New Year feast of pork, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes (can you tell I have a German heritage?). Here’s to a bright start in a new year. Cheers!
