Spring is such a warm welcome after a cold long winter. With it comes renewed energy and a desire to get back on track to achieve some of those goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year.

Winter is a time when we like to gather around fires to keep warm and of course stay indoors. It is a time to slow down, to reflect but also to plan. It’s a chance to talk, to share and for the passion in each of us to be sparked and ignited. What is it that you plan to do or want to do? Take this time to think, plan and ignite your own fire as well as the fires within others.
