This day began and ended with a series of error messages…over all it was your typical Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

This month, Soulshine celebrates One Year! Much like raising children, it has quite literally flown by! In efforts to build upon the experiences learned in year one, Allison and I took a few moments to reflect and review one year of valuable lessons: No dream is too big.
