A thank you from Start DC.

Happy New Year! Do you have 2016 resolutions? I like this time of year to pause, reflect, and set an intention or two for the year ahead. In 2016, my resolutions include:

  • Every year, I aim to travel to at least one country that I haven’t visited before. This year, I will fulfill this annual resolution early with a trip to Colombia later this week. Last year, I was fortunate to add the Dominican Republic, South Africa (photos from my safari below), and Swaziland to my list.

There is plenty to celebrate at Start DC and I’ll waste no time in saying THANK YOU!
