Tis the season...it's actually happening, and we're coming to the end of our holiday blogs. Mary Elizabeth and I always enjoy doing them, because it' s something special and personal that happens only once a year. This holiday season has been a little daunting - everything from 50,000 emails in my inbox, to a flood in our administrative office (we're all cozy in the abundant health classroom, temporarily.) But you know what they say - change is good. So we've shifted the energy, and after we get the new carpet in and all of our desks moved back, everything will be fresh and ready for 2012. Seems auspicious in a way - at least I choose to look at it from that perspective. Meanwhile, this season, we've had glorious sunny days, frosty mornings, and starry, starry nights. And 2012 is supposed to be a pivotal year for all of us, when we step into the new paradigm of how the earth can be. We are a little microcosm of relationships here at Living Light, so we have opportunity. Speaking of opportunity, we've just launched our latest Hot Raw Chef Sweet Valentine Video Recipe Contest. Mary Elizabeth is going to fill you in on more details tomorrow. It's going to be fun seeing all of the great contestants, recipes, and this time the contest is low-glycemic and gluten-free, so it's quite timely. Who doesn't want to enjoy guilt-free raw food recipes that make you feel good? More than that, the contest is open to both professional and amateur chefs, so no matter what your skill level, you have a chance to win. And we are giving over $4200 in prizes this year.
