Monday Memos & A Special Shannon Squeeeee!!!

To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind.
To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will.
To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed.
-Bernard Edmonds

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
-Henry David Thoreau

Before I get to the reminders, contest, etc. I want to say
