Where Have We Been?

A client asked me the other day, "what happened to your emails?"    


I met his question with mixed emotions. 


Yes, I was pleased that he missed our newsletters.  But I was also disappointed that he wasn't aware of the other ways we were providing information to our clients and friends.

Please forgive me for not doing a better job of sharing this with you!
