Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year! I’m quite ready to say farewell to 2015.  My goal for 2016 is to celebrate each day. I am thankful for each and every day that I have with my family, friends, clients and business colleagues!  So on that note:

Happy New Year 2014 (800x533)

Wow! This year just flew by.  Can you believe that in a few hours we will all be ringing in 2015!

2014 was a great year for myself and my family, but certainly not without some bumps along the road with some health scares, specifically pertaining to my father.  But we are all here together so that is what really counts…..having family and good friends around you as a constant in your life.

The last couple of weeks have been hectic as we did a lot of hosting over the Christmas holidays so it will be nice to relax with our best friends this evening and ring in the new year together which has become a tradition for almost 20 years if you can believe it…….crazy!  And now there are 5 kids amongst us to help us celebrate.

I hope you all enjoy toasting the new year in!  Thank you for visiting my little space on the internet….I really do appreciate it, and I wish you nothing but the best in 2015!

Glamorously yours,

Looking Back: 2010 was the year of Social Media Friendships!!

As I get ready to bid 2010 adieu in a few hours, I’d like to quickly share with you some of the fantastic friends and colleagues I’ve had the pleasure of meeting this year through Twitter, Facebook, my blog and LinkedIn.  Some I formed great new friendships with while others, although fleeting, still made an impression on me!

So let’s get started…some faces you may recognize, others you may not…..but they all helped make 2010 a fabulous year for me!
