So here it is…New Year’s Day was just seemingly yesterday, and now it is the END of January!  I know we hear it all the time – – how time goes so quickly, we never take the time to stop and smell the roses, etc.  But wow, this month has seemed to surpass all others in terms of lightening speed time progression!

My 1/2 marathon in Phoenix was incredible.  Everything about it was perfect!  So now I’m hooked, and I hope to do a full marathon sometime this year.  THANK YOU to all of those who supported my fundraising efforts for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training.  I surpassed my fundraising goal and raised over $4500 to help find a cure for the blood cancers.  And thank you for all of the encouragement and spirit that I was given along the way…I could not have done it without it!

In other news, I am thrilled to be displaying some of my work from Italy at Zola’s New World Bistro during the months of February and March.  I am very proud and honored to have this opportunity as it shows a very different side of my work.  On Thursday, February 7th, there will be an artist’s reception from 5-7pm, so stop by and say hi!  Zola’s

Can it *REALLY* be the end of January?!?!?
