I was wavering on whether to set a resolution of “following-up” on all things important to my well being and my business… then I thought to myself, "does this set me up for a fall?" Have I successfully completed resolutions that I have set in the past? What does resolution REALLY mean??? So, of course I looked it up in one of my favorite books (as described in my profile - ANY Dictionary). The definition(s) actually surprised me (see below).

Nowhere did the definition say that I would be setting myself up for a fall… cool, then I’ll do it! And, I realized I stopped setting resolutions many years ago due to the FEAR (there's that UGLY word) of failure... sooo, I am making a resolution for 2007 to follow-up on all things related to the good of my life – and this includes SEE ME cards - I am walking thru my past fears of failure! AND, since my philosophy is self-care & self-love, all these follow-ups will fall in line with my truest beliefs! YEAH!!!

Happy New Year to each and every one of my IBI sisters and brothers! And may you COMPLETE your needs for 2007!

Friends & Witnesses

My husband and I were blown away by two of our friends, Mark & Christina (Tina). We haven't seen them but maybe 2 times this year due to both our schedules... then yesterday I received a call from Mark inviting us to go to dinner... well... I told him that Tim and I could go if we went to a restaurant that would honor our CitiPass... ya know, one of those city books that you buy and get two-for-one dinners or lunches.

Anyway, Mark says, "We want to treat you guys" in celebration of your anniversary (of which they were our wedding photog's and our witnesses all in one, cause we were in Scotland getting married) and Christmas. Well I was taken a weee bit aback by this invitation... I had no expectation of their intentions...

Mark & Christina picked out a restaurant that we had never been to called Stoney River... it was REALLY good. We had a great time, and I took some pictures and passed my camera around... here are some shots.Thank you Mark & Christina for such kindness... you really touched our hearts... we look forward to returning the favor when we are able...P.S. Those are ONION Rings!!!

Home Again!!!

On the road again... just can't wait to get on the road again...

Actually, I'm not really looking forward to it... my trip to CA was very WONDERFUL and part of me doesn't want to leave... going home means it's time to WORK WORK WORK... but then again, Piano Wizard should be arriving at our home really soon, and I can't wait to get started learning how to play the piano...If you haven't seen this revolutionary tool, YOU MUST check it out!

And, if you would like to invest in the project that is bringing this awesome little puppy to the public, you need to email or call me ASAP!
