Hello Monday!

Now that the fun filled weekend is over, it's time to go back to work. I wanted to take a quick moment this morning to share a little something with you. Have you checked out the Noel Mignon blog lately? The new team is posting inspirational items every day. You can check out my post here. Just to give you a little teaser, I talk a little about this layout below...

In other news, the Magazine has it's current calls up. I hope you take a few minutes to submit.
