Happy Monday, everyone!

How was your weekend? Are you ready for a brand new week?

It looks like a yucky day outside our window. Expect some rain today in Boston (and outside the city), but the good news is the mild winter returns after some chilly temps this past weekend.

Have a great day, everyone, and remember to smile, laugh, and drink an extra cup of coffee today!

Greetings Thursday – how the heck are you?

From a quick glance outside our window, you look cold, rainy, and a bit snowy, too. But that’s OK because like they say in Disney’s Frozen, “the cold never bothered me anyway.”

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and remember to smile, laugh, and sing your favorite song (even in the office!).
