  1. Great podcast Dianne. Thanks for all you do. Your reflections on 2014 were awesome and so wonderfully written. The shawl and hat you were wearing are so heaufult as well. Happy New Year to you and your family.


  2. Good episode. When you started talking about how you make lists, and have goals etc, I thought we must surely be related along the way. It was amazing how similar some of your 2015 goals are to mine.

  3. Just found your podcast and I really am enjoying it! Loved hearing about the 2015 goals – it gave me some ideas for my own goal setting! 🙂 Could you please share what the pattern is for the shawl you are wearing? It is really, really pretty! Glad I found you! Sue
