Out of the “Office”

Greetings, everyone! I just wanted to pop in and let you all know we’re going to be “out of the office” this week.

Greetings! Greg and I hope everyone had a great week filled with Christmas fun and holiday cheer! We’ve been a little MIA over the holiday because we’ve been down in Florida with my side of the family. We can’t even begin to say how much fun we’ve had and how nice it has been to take a break.
