Resolve to Live Vibrantly in 2012


by Amy Saffell

2011 has come to a close, and we’re ushering in a new year.  For many, the end of holiday celebrations signals a time for reflection. Most of us realize we still have room to grow into who we want to be, and that means it’s time to make some new year’s resolutions. We make resolutions because we realize that, no matter how great the previous year has been, the new year can be even better. If you’re on the fence about new year’s resolutions, let’s look at how you might make (and keep!) one!

Bringing the Extraordinary into 2012



by Camile Araujo

As the year ends, I am delighted to say that 2011 was a pleasantly surprising year for me.  I took on the role of mother, and I also put on the hat of “writer.” As long as I can remember and discovered that books were written by actual people, I knew I wanted to tell stories. I wanted to write. Then, as I grew older and my grandparents introduced me to classics such as "The Wizard of Oz," "The Sound of Music," "Gone with the Wind," "Singing in the Rain," "Mary Poppins," I discovered I had a yearning to write and one day direct a movie.
