November coffee breakWhere I live, November brings a welcome break – a sense of quiet and solitude – a stark contrast to the rush of foliage and summer tourist seasons.

We use this time to prepare for winter and the busy holiday season. We put the summer furniture away, put the snow tires on the car, get the snow blower tuned up, and dress our dogs up in bright orange bandannas so they don’t get mistaken for deer when hunters take to the woods.

November is also when I really start thinking ahead to next year. It’s the perfect time to review what’s working and what isn’t, and dream up new ways I can help my customers in the coming year.

I’m sitting by the fire with coffee in hand, and I’d love to hear what you want to see in 2013. Respond here in the comments, or share on Facebook.
