122-2267_IMG Santa Cruz. September 2004 Back home after a Fourth of July weekend in Anacortes, Washington. Portland feels good to me- overcast and familiar.

Change is afoot. Again. But this time it feels like an opening- exciting and brimming with possibility. I am no longer working with Tracey Forrest, my talented sales rep of the last three years. Transition is always a bit scary but there is also no avoiding it. Life, it rolls and flows.

I am reminded this morning that I am a long way from where I started-the kitchen table in Josh's little farm house. And how grateful I am for each person that has helped, supported, and inspired me along the way.
