Well, we are on our way! 1.5 hours and we will see a new year. It has been an amazing, joyous, heart rending, confusing, enlightening, year of risk, reward, challenge, change and most importantly love. I have found friends and allies in unexpected places, pulled my family closer and distanced myself from those that do not have my best interest at heart.

2017, I am ready to meet you with my team by my side. I am ready to conquer your challenges and accept all the gifts you have to offer.

Sending love to the world for 2017. Especially for Alma Nora and #LeonardoDavis.
