The Season of Celebration





Thanksgiving got the holiday season off to a great start. It was wonderful to reflect on the many blessings I have to be thankful for. Sometimes we spend too much time thinking about the things that aren't going as planned or as hoped for. That's when it's time to look up and acknowledge that as long as you live and breathe, there are always the possibilities a new day will bring.


After taking stock of priorities, the weather brought on a sudden reality. Fall is winding down and winter is roaring to life. Even though it's time to pull out the heavy coats, hats, scarves and gloves (at least in the Northeast), people are still having fun, there are still events you won't want to miss and interesting places to explore. Here's a list to consider.
