Happy Belated New Year! May it be Happy, Healthy and Prosperous. I celebrated this year hosting a wonderful dinner for ten close members of my family and friends. Lots of good food, conversation and laughs.

My vacation with my best friend Jan to the Finger Lakes was super fun and relaxing. We stayed at 2 beautiful inns: the Gothic Eves Inn and Black Sheep Inn. We even treated ourselves to massages. We also shared some excellent food, saw some beautiful wineries, hiked, and visited a few distilleries as well. I came home with a car full of plants from her garden, too. 

My relocation business is hopping. I am working with 3 new clients from Perdue Pharma in Coventry. I am also happy to share that I am a Certified Strengths Coach through Leadership RI. 

Last week, I attended a number of exciting events during Design Week RI. I included some of the designers featured in this months newsletter as well as a couple more events that I'll be attending this fall. 

And stay tuned ...  I am very excited launch my new website. It is almost complete so I will share the link in the next newsletter. Can't wait to get your feedback. 

Holy Cow, every one. Happy Fall!
