2021 started out unlike any year I’ve experienced before. I did not feel like celebrating a new year. Yes, I was glad to leave 2020 behind but was there really anything to celebrate entering a new year with almost 400,000 COVID deaths in the US?

I know so many of you can relate as you have shared via email, tweets, and direct messages. There is something strangely comforting in knowing I don’t feel alone.Continue reading “Thanksgiving 2020”
We all need something to look forward to these days. For me, I am starting early by trying to get into the holiday spirit. Normally, I would scoff at anyone putting out Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. But this year, I think we can agree that we all are craving some holiday cheer. Just today, I noticed my local business improvement district started putting up Christmas lights and this made me so happy.
