Happy Chinese New Year!
This Monday, February 8, marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year: The Year of Monkey. The Chinese zodiac is represented by 12 animals; the Monkey ranks in 9th place of the 12 animals. A Monkey year happens every 12 years. And 2016 is a Fire Monkey year – which will not be seen again until 2076. People born under the sign of the Monkey are wise, intelligent, confident, charismatic, loyal, inventive, and leaders. You go, Monkeys!
I wish all great fortune this Monkey year!

… and into a New Year. I often find myself walking in the woods to clear my mind and open my heart. I guess you could say that I am trying literally, to set the path for my life. Here I am again, thinking good thoughts and wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! Here’s to the brightest 2015!

My New Year’s blessing is you – Photo by Patricia Saxton
In this week’s podcast I am easing in to the New Year and celebrating you. Next month is the second anniversary of Turning Fashion Inside Out and being able to talk to you feels like a blessing. I have loved our conversations, and learning about what fashion means to you and its effect on your self image and self esteem. In the New Year, I look forward to bringing you more conversations, more discussions, more opportunities to share.
This video is for you, from one of my son’s favorite movies of 2013: Despicable Me2. The title, of course? HAPPY, by Pharrell Williams. Clap along!
