Happy New Year and Much Thanks from Chew the Fat

I just wanted to take moment to say "thank you" to every visitor who has spent time at Chew the Fat.  It's been a challenging year navigating the demands of being a teacher, husband, and parent while still trying to find and share sources of inspiration.

2014 will be a year of refocus and gratitude.  I have also given myself permission to relax.  I hope you have found something beneficial and inspirational in your visits to Chew the Fat.  I'll keep working at it.

Here a few highlights from the past year:

1.  Chew the Fat traffic stats were the second highest in the last five years
2.  My t-shirts and swag shop earned double of what it did last year
3.  I am up to my 77th inspirational haiku and counting.  I have also started the process of putting them all on one page.  Click here to check it out.
4.  I've been able to take some great pictures and start up a new page at Smug Mug.  I think the Smug Mug site has a wonderful design.
5.  Above all else.  I have been trying to take breaks daily to reflect on all of the wonderful things I have in my life.  I truly am lucky an blessed.

Have a very Happy and Blessed New Year,
