Throughout the year we all experience diverse celebrations; birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, and end of life passages. December has been dazzling with rebirth in the Tales of the Nativity amidst the lights of Chanukah. The 31st, the very last day of December and 2017, leads us to remembering all that has been while gazing ahead with dreams, hopes, and plans for what is to come. What comes isn’t always what we expect or wish for, yet amidst the brilliance of life there are hopes and dreams that keep stirring our hearts. As I look back on 2017, I am grateful for the wellbeing in our family and remember fondly our Serendipity Traveler trips with many of you. We traveled thousands of miles this year with our final jaunt to South Africa which exceeded all our expectations and captured our hearts. Inspired, enriched, and transformed traveling continues to be a passion I share with you. Looking forward to 2018, we will travel to more enchanting gardens, castles, historical villages, mountains, idyllic islands, and engage in cultural experiences around the world. All good wishes as we begin 2018.
