Happy New Year! We've Improved Our Site

We hope you all had a wonderful break and enjoyed time with family and friends. We had an unusual amount of snow in the Seattle area which provided us with a few extra days off. It was the first white Christmas we have had in many, many years. There is something really magical and wonderful about a snow day - when we are forced to stop, stay home, and relish the luxury of sitting with cocoa in front of a fire while curled up with a good read!
