I was away in Bulgaria at the time, the sun was shining and I was really excited about beginning a new…

Go Tell the Bees! The TEAM party continues...

The world feels strange right now and the shadows can be scary, but sometimes the best things can happen when we stop and have the space to be creative.  The world has slowed down, the skies are clearing, the seas are calming and nature is reclaiming its place.  That’s pretty magical.
