Hello 2015!

New Year Goals and a heartfelt thank you
"I send thank-you notes on postcards—they're the best way to let someone know you really like them." —John Waters

If I could send each and every one of you a heartfelt thank you on a post card I would... thank you so much to each and every one of you who found this site, shared in the fun and made 2014 such a year to smile about. Thank you!

The holidays in particular were the cherry on the top of one of the busiest, most non-stop years ever. So much so that this time I wanted a major recovery plan. Sometimes the best gift is some TLC and shameless pampering. Since this is also the time of year when many New Year resolutions start to wane I'll be sharing some personal 2015 goals along with little things to detox and wash last years festivities out of our system and start the year off fresh.
