My thoughts on New Years Resolutions haven't changed - you can read about that here if you wish.....but I do resolve every day I wake up to try to connect better, do better, appreciate more, stress less about the small stuff and soak in the good stuff. I feel very fortunate to have a great family and so many wonderful friends. An amazing community in my yoga practice and talented, inspirational people in my design community. I wish you all a happy last day of 2015 and a healthy and inspiring 2016.
More SOUL FOOD.....less eye candy.
