Happy Wednesday, Vampires! 2.5 days to go: We got this!

The holidays are here and, with them, an opportunity to reset, recharge and recalibrate. For many of us, a digital detox is in order!

If unplugging is part of your plans, we sincerely hope you are able to disconnect from our work email and daily obligations for as long as possible, leaving computers behind to enjoy the gift of travel, holiday meals with family and friends, and the making of new memories. ⛰
For some of us, a productive itch starts right around the first days of the new year. That can mean reassessing needs, making plans for the year, rethinking how our homes are organized, purging what we don’t need, and even tidying and sorting the often overwhelming amount of photos, documents, and digital tidbits across our devices. 

Sound familiar?

You are not alone. If you do get the itch to be online, AND decluttering is part of your holiday plans, you may wish to file this newsletter away for when you’re ready to dig into your digital vault!
