Do you love it?   |   October 10, 2005

As the day is literally just beginning, I – like many of you – are seeing the new updates to for the first time.  I hope that you are equally as pleased by the new look as I am.  Frédéric and I have been speaking a lot about dreams in the past few days, and I feel as though mine continues to unfold before my eyes in the form of this beautiful website for which I can take very little credit.  I owe a great deal of gratitude and thanks to the gentlemen behind this creation – Brad and Jacob of Porchlight MCG.  It is because of them that this business came to be in the first place.  Because of their foresight and a little push about a year ago, is a reality.  It has been an extreme joy to work with them and I could not have asked for a better team.  If you have any creative design needs, please call Brad and Jacob.  I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!

Now that my morning is off to a beautiful start, the site is running, the newsletter is out, and last months accounting is complete, I am off to the golf course for an early morning 18 holes.  Yes…I have taken up golf, but that will have to wait for a later reflection.  Have a nice morning and enjoy this magnificent new day.

Autumn is here   |   October 07, 2005

Autumn can mean so many different things to different people.  As I sit in my backyard and the sun is coming up over the back wall, splashing the morning rays on the tree tops, I am enjoying what Autumn means to me.  It is a light cool breeze that occassionally blows a leaf from the tree.  It is the sound of Simon, the hummingbird that visit our backyard every morning in the six o'clock hour, vibrating in my ear.  It marks the time of year when I can finally plant winter gass and pansies and it is finally cool enough to hike the mountains around Phoenix without fear of instant dehydration.  It means barbecues with friends and glasses of wine (and tea, of course) on the patio in the evening. 

Coming from the Northwest, I know that Autumn often means the end of most of these things instead of the beginning.  One of the beautiful things about living in the Valley of the Sun is that my season for outdoor enjoyment lasts for nearly three seasons.  Whether you are entering or leaving the season of mild temperatures and flower-filled afternoons, may we always enjoy the little things that make life so special...friends, family and love.  Regardless of whether or not it is cloudy, it can always be a sunny day. 

Have a sunny day!
