I hope you had a special time this winter with family and friends. I am not only blessed with wonderful friends, clients, and business, but a delightful family. I spent a week on Kauai helping celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of David and Janet Kimball Crook...my brother and his amazing wife. For a week I was included in great activities and surrounded by the best, including many Burtons: Dottie, John, Cheryl, Donovan, Jonathan, Keisha, and Emily. Also Ed and Michelle Dias, Brian and Jeff Collins, Devon Dias; and Brandon, Jenna, Rhett, and Amelia Simek. We went all over the island, and had such a good time. Most of us had cameras, and we all got good shots, but by far the leader is my brother. He has a special gift. Actually more than one. I saw my first Rainbow Eucalyptus and it almost blew me away. It was at the McBryde Garden, which is near the Spouting Horn in Po-ipu, Koloa. I suspect the tours are even more spectacular in the spring when everything is in bloom. However, there was much to see: some amazing hibiscus, the brilliant red annotto pods on huge trees, many varieties of palms, shell ginger, various splendid orchids, awapuhi, hau trees, ti plants, kukui trees, and plumeria. There are too many types to remember, but it was breathtaking. And catching photos of a few birds was a bonus. Visiting the old Koloa Sugar Mill was a bonus for me, and I got many pictures which I will show on my blog at judyvorfeld.com. Later. First, I need to delete, organize, and edit pictures, then get back to work doing what I love...helping people present themselves as authentically as possible, and helping nonprofits in any way possible. Again, have a wonderful 2013!

I've been volunteering with the Yellow Boat project for over a year, and the growth has been nothing short of amazing. Good, solid growth taking place because of good solid people at the helm. Here's the story as told by Facebook.com. There are a number of leaders who volunteer selflessly to make the Yellow Boat Foundation (and many other foundations and NGOs) a reality.
