With the end of the year looming before us, it's a time for me to reflect on the past and look toward the future. And this year is no exception, except I'm ending the year, by saying goodbye to one of The Cat Pack and hello to a new member.

Joanne Basile is not only a talented artist, a mother of 2 precious boys and a wife to just a really awesome guy, but she also wears many hats besides those most important ones. I've known her for years, and she is so much more than all those spectacular things I just mentioned. Joanne is a beautiful person. And a beautiful shining soul. Joanne is leaving the Pack, to devote more time to her family. And nothing is more important than that. I'll miss her.

So I'm leaving you with one of her last cards, that is so very, totally, Joanne. She is pretty awesome.
