2009 the year of "tranquility and self discovery"

Our Holiday family vacation this year was in Asia. Our daughter was studying in Vietnam this past year and we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to visit a culture we had always been interested in.

Our final destination was Thailand. We landed at the most perfect spot in Phuket. The Sri Panwa Resort.Located on the most southern tip of the island, it offered the most tranquil views and effortless clean style in living.

This simplicity inspired me at every turn. I hope that in the coming year to carry the peaceful philosophy of this experience through all the daily trails of work and life.

The flowers and clean line decor will certainly reflect in upcoming styling and production jobs.

In these times of economic confusion, and political new beginnings we should take some time out of the day to reflect on simple blessings and peaceful thoughts.

To be inspired by nature, function and clean form is my resolution for 2009.

Peace to all in the coming year.
