Happy New Year everyone!! We had a nice relaxing break, so I hope you all got to enjoy some time off as well. Now that we’ve had some time to step away, we’re really excited to get back to work bringing you lots of daily inspiration. As previously mentioned, there will be quite a few changes around here over the next couple of months, so stay tuned for that, but here are a few links to help you get the first week of 2011 going.
