can you believe it’s the last day of the year?! there is no doubt that all of us are ready to bid adieu to 2020. there’s something symbolic when we flip the calendar to a new day, a new year. here’s a quote that sums up the past year “You can get excited about the future, the past won’t mind.” this quote reminds me of possibilities “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity, and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” and this quote speaks to all of us over a certain age “You are never too old to reinvent yourself.” so let’s usher in 2021 with a mindset of possibilities. it’s a new year with new adventures. the future is our story to write, let’s make 2021 the best one yet. cheers to health, happiness, and prosperity in 2021.

houndstooth is a pattern coined since it resembles a dog’s tooth. it was originally worn as an outer garment by shepherds in the lowlands of Scotland. in the 1940s, Christian Dior began to use this pattern in his collections, and it sprung into prominence. houndstooth is a timeless pattern most often seen in black and white but can be adapted in other color combinations. if you pay attention to SEC football and are familiar with The Crimson Tide, you know their love of houndstooth runs deep. revered coach paul “bear” bryant was always seen sporting a black and white houndstooth fedora, and a tradition was born.
