celebrating a new year & new possibilities

Happy New Year friends!  I hope many of you were able to enjoy the ringing in of the new year surrounded by friends and family!  My own little familia had a simple, quiet celebration.  We decided to "camp out" on an air mattress set in the middle of the living room floor, with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin chatting on the tube as entertainment.  At some point we all passed out. . . well before midnight.  I woke up at what I thought was 11:30PM only to find out that I had missed the ball dropping in Times Square by two and a half hours.  Go figure.  But hey, cupcakes with sprinkles for everyone!!

So it's a new year and already there are some awesome projects in the works.  I'll be collaborating with my good friend Blaire Johnson of Green Hope Productions, on some fun & exciting ideas.  I love her down-to-earth personality and "go get'em" attitude.  She's like my own little groovy pirate cheerleader and I love her for it!  Our minds are working overtime and it feels great!  Currently, Blaire is filming a documentary called Bringing It Home, alongside another talented lady, Linda Booker.  The mission of their film is to help educate the public, and to raise support for the approval of industrial hemp production here in the United States.  Learn more about their crusade thus far, and the benefits of industrial hemp by visiting the Bringing it Home website.

Alright friends, here's to a fantastic, productive, and greener New Year!!
