Yesterday when I walked into the grocery store, the poinsettias were gone and they had small pots with narcissus breaking through the soil and some small yellow blossoms. I had this very physical feeling of AHHHHHH! It was so refreshing to see a hint of spring around the corner. With a new idea book arriving in January, going live for customers in February, I had the same feeling as I sat down to look through it page by page.
