The M Word

One Year Ago Today…

One year ago today, my team gathered at 0900 and accomplished the amazing task of packing and moving our entire office in a single day.  Two sweet and generous clients (thank you!) spontaneously joined us and helped with the nuttiness of putting all of our belongings into boxes, bags and baskets, loading and un-loading the trucks, then unpacking and building new furniture in the new space. My boyfriend and Cindy’s husband were incredible bringing their brawn and construction abilities to the scene by lifting and carrying furniture and putting up shelves.  All of my staff spent all day working to get the new space looking reasonable and we were open for business the very next day!  True, like any recent moves, it took a bit more time to get totally organized, but we were in our fabulous new space!

Now after a full year we are gathering again, this time in San Francisco to celebrate the holidays.  We plan to ice skate on Union Square, giggle and laugh, have dinner and drinks then end with a slumber party at the Hotel Vitale.  I am filled with gratitude for my team and am wishing for everyone the kind of joy and appreciation that I feel today.

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the coming New Year!

#VOTE! It is a Privilege and a Responsibility

Truthfully I, like many people right now, feel exhausted by the anger and negativity of politics.  I will admit to keeping my head in the sand and avoiding the news.  But, I am DONE being an ostrich. I am writing this because I must use whatever voice I have to urge, encourage, cajole, and maybe…
