It’s here! Un-PC, but Christmas is practically here! I’ll be sitting in the passenger seat soon, en route to my family home in southern California. I can’t wait to see my loved ones — especially so for our second annual white elephant gift exchange. Funny things happen when you put 40 people, ages 2 to 82, in one room. I’ll be taking the blog offline for week in order to indulge and recuperate (in that order)… after which I will have time to review 2013 and renew 2014. I have a few plans up my sleeve and can’t wait to share them with you. Until then, happy holidays!
