Though I have big goals in 2016 for my blog and creative marketing business, I’m allowing myself to enjoy my winter break back in Wisconsin with my family and all 5 golden retrievers. Sometimes stepping away from all the technology and digital media enticements is really good for your soul & you come back more focused than ever.
Each morning, I love to gather all the pups and head out to the snowmobile trails behind the house and take them for a good walk in the woods. My born and raised Californian dog took a few days to figure out what all this white, fluffy, cold stuff was on the ground (don’t even ask me about how potty breaks went!), but now she absolutely loves it and can often be found leading the pack through the deep snow drifts. The winter chill definitely isn’t my favorite, but once I get bundled up I’m good to go. I even got a new pair of Sorel winter boots for Christmas that have been all I’m wearing while I’m here. I figure if El Niño ever does hit SoCal, I’ll wear them when having to take Dexie for walks there too.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year and are feeling relaxed and motivated to make 2016 a great year ahead!
