“Nothing in nature blooms all year long…” Feeling a little too much pressure to smash goals, be on and amazing, have your whole year planned out and become your best self in just the first few weeks of the year? Holy expectation, Batman! Seriously, remove that insane pressure. Sometimes it’s okay if the only thing you accomplish in a day is time to BREATHE!
We’re back to regular programing around here. Routine is good for us all, I find. While I loved having no schedule, time off work and loads of time to “just be”, lots of time indoors because of the extreme cold had us all going a bit insane.

It is my hope, that even through what can become the hustle and bustle, over-doing, magic-making of the holidays, remembering the reason for the season will be at the heart of our family time. On November 17th, SONY Pictures Animation releases a heart-warming film about the greatest story ever told – the very first Christmas. The cast is “star”-studded, including Patricia Heaton, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler
I’m going to be really honest – the last month has been overwhelming and kinda knocked me off my productivity rails. Among all the regular crazy of our large crew, the start of hockey season and still trying to find my groove back at my day job, there’s been what seem like unending, unexpected stressors that are weighing on my spirit.
