If you have not yet signed up to attend Fresh Take please do so today. We want to make sure we order the correct amount of lunches. Here is the link for our staff. We have fabulous workshops being offered at our conference (a sneak peek will be coming soon).Please encourage a friend to attend! The Fresh Take link can be found on our website on the bottom right under the calendar. We are going to update the registration link to allow for one day attendance for any friends who cannot attend both days.
Inspiration/Funny:During this extremely busy time of year, please make sure you are taking some time to play. I recently saw this video and was reminded of how important play is for all of us! Not only does play just make us happier human beings, it also increases our creativity and productivity. So be sure you schedule a few minutes of “play time” into each day. You won’t be sorry! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E7uiRCVms0
