The past week has had its share of holiday fun. The stockings for me,  Buddy, and Bo made it to the fireplace, along with the snowman mantel runner I haven’t had out in a few years.  The small tree found a home on the landing upstairs, and I got some help decorating from a few little elves. Even though I’ll spend Christmas with the kids, I think it’s important for my own holiday spirit to put on at least a little show.

Finally, an early present to myself. I went to an auction by the Virginia Chapter of the National Speakers Association and was high bidder for 3 prior years’ worth of their monthly magazine. Good info, plus bonus CDs of interviews with national level speakers, and if nothing else, I can use them in creating new vision boards as I think about 2016.
