Saying "Yes"-An Ongoing Adventure

So I just want to thank y’all for following along with me the past couple of weeks. I have filled you in with lots of good info about things I’ve been up to, people I’ve met, projects I’ve started, conferences I’m attending, etc.

But I do know that there will be plenty of opportunities and it’s what we do with these opportunities that will shape who we are.
