Happy New Year all!  I hope it proves to be full of good things for all of you.  This is just a quick post to say we are still here and that new things will be on the way soon…

January is always an odd month for me.  On the one hand, it’s a fresh start – full of new goals and plans and hopes.  That’s always exciting and energizing.

But at the same time, it’s always a bit of a blue month for me.  I live in Vancouver and usually, January is all about grey, dark, cloudy skies and a LOT of rain.  Days and weeks of rain! (although, as i write this, blue sky is trying to peek through)  Gone are all the twinkly lights and festive feelings that kept December from sinking into dullness and it feels like a bit of a letdown.  It’s such a contrast for me and every January I struggle with keeping the blues at bay.  Coping strategies, anyone?

This year, I’m once again feeling a bit at odds.  We have a big change coming at Fine Lime but due to some lose ends, it’s not official yet, which makes it hard to get into that ‘fresh start’ mindset.  Hopefully, all the i’s and t’s will be dealt with in the next few days and we can really get the new year underway.

However, on a good note, the nature of that change means that we’re able to take on some very exciting projects for 2010 that I am super pumped up about – I think that will help kick those January blues to the curb!

Until next time!
