We are hunkered down, waiting out the aftermath of an ice storm—feeling fortunate for heat and food and the well-being of our loved ones.

As we come closer to the new year, thoughts of the one behind rustle through my mind.

It was a year sprinkled with triumphs and accomplishments that have changed and bettered me. 

Those moments couldn't have been mine without all of you, my readers. 

Every comment. Every word of encouragement. They are breezes at my back. 

Here's a clip to remind all of us that collaboration always wins. 




Happy holidays to you and yours.

Thank you for being here in 2013.
