The UCC team recently celebrated Christmas with a fantastic meal at the recently re-opened Milos Greek Grill, in Walkerville, followed by a Paint Party led by the very talented Julie Robinson.

I had never been to a paint party. I don’t have an artistic bone in my body.

Andrea, on the other hand, she’s been to 40+ parties (for real!)… and it shows.

Check out her painting compared to mine… it’s pretty comical. So is my apron… smh!

But at least I didn’t get the award for ugliest picture… those honours went to John. ?

Let’s just say that the Milos waitress (who was also the judge) received a very good tip. ?

If I am being honest… I wasn’t overly excited about the Paint Party, but I had a blast. And so did everybody else. I highly recommend, regardless of artistic abilities.

It’s crazy to think that another year has come and gone.

This has been a very eventful year for me. New business, new house and many new challenges faced along the way.

As I reflect on 2023, it seemed to fly by, yet so much happened!

It’s not until I paused to write this email, that I realized that many of my long-term goals were achieved this past year. Yet, I’ve never really stopped to celebrate them.

My goal for this Christmas season is to slow down, enjoy my family and friends and express gratitude for all that I have and all that I’ve accomplished in 2023.

I also hope to spend some time to reflect on the goals that I have not yet achieved, and my priorities for 2024.

In these emails I am often pointing out all that is bad in the economy, politics etc. But in reality, as a whole, we have it pretty darn good! And it’s important to recognize and be grateful for that.

This holiday season, take time to be with those you love and focus on all that is good. That’s what I will be doing.

From all of us here at UCC, we wish all of you the best holiday season.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

See you in 2024!
