Finish Lines !!


Wow.  February 29th, that extra day you get every four years*

Today is the last day of the Ready to be Thirsty challenge!

If you attempted the challenge – then, congratulations.  If you didn’t, well, we would like to extend our sincere invite to join us in 2017.  Or, you could take on another ‘dry period’ of your choosing – whenever it suits you.  If you do, feel free to tell us about it on Facebook:

We’ll be there, prepping for next year, getting ready to hear your stories and share our own.  Any which way, we hope you gained some perspective, shed a few pounds, and learned about yourself.

Take the time to really think, even just for a few minutes, about your health, your energy, your alcohol consumption.  Carry those lessons forward – take them with you.  We think those notions will actually make you wiser, more insightful…just a little, even when the time comes when you want to have that beer, that glass of wine.  Enjoy it sensibly, moderately.

Life is about learning, from successes, from set-backs.  Take pride in your accomplishments and we’ll happily see you when we see you next!
