Welcome to 2012!
We are so thrilled to be entering this new year with you! We have shared a year with you via our blogging and your support and comments, and now we are beginning a new calendar year. We are hoping that we can take the steps to make this year better than 2011, and we invite you to do the same. 2011 was a very nice year for us as far as personal and professional growth and we hope that during this new year, we continue to thrive along with you.

To make this a great year we will not be sitting around waiting to see what good things this year will bring us, but we plan to roll up our sleeves and do everything in our power to make things happen for us.

It's not about "rolling with the punches" or accepting our circumstances, it is about taking the reins and doing everything possible to deal with life's little circumstances.

Carpe Diem! It is a new beginning and it gives us a chance to gauge, evaluate, get a new perspective, and take a different approach to continue to grow, to continue to evolve. "When you are through learning, you are through." Open up, do not despair and keep moving, keep loving, keep the faith!
Happy New Year
