Guys, I’m feeling good about 2017. I am. It’s not going to be easy. We’re coming off of a pretty tough year and looking ahead into one that seems a bit confused, lost. But there’s something about that spark I see in your eyes, the spark that ignited after enduring so much suffering this past year. The spark that wants change. And it’s that spark that makes me believe we’re going to have a different year, a better year…a year that is ours.

So cheers to us. Cheers to our year.

Happy New Year, my loves.
