2015 In the Rearview Mirror

2015 proved to be a year with dramatic highs and lows. But when all is said and done, I’m here on the last day of the year, closing it out with hope and possibility holding each of my hands. I’m grateful to have you here reading, listening, offering advice and being my friend. Thank you.

Wishing you all the things your heart desires in 2016. Be brave, friends. Embrace your awesomeness.

Highlights from 2015
