As we venture into a new year, often there is personal reflection on the previous year, its joys and challenges, and ways we would like to progress into the future. The unfortunate truism is that most Americans have already broken or given up on their resolutions by the end of January. While I am one to write resolutions and take them very seriously, I too believe it is so very important for each of us to pause and perhaps take a New Year's account of all that we are so incredibly grateful for. So today I pause in gratitude for an absolutely incredibe 2013 and in thanks for the many adventures, travels, experiences, and dearly loved friends and family.
Many blessings to each of you into 2014!
