Lots of Snow!

Boston is just one inch away from setting a new snow record for the month of December! I don't know if we'll beat the record though, as most of the snow that fell in the last couple of weeks is melting.

Here's a picture I took while stuck in traffic on the drive home during the worst snowstorm:

And Ollie showing off how he likes to wear his winter hat now (he's very particular about how the ears are positioned):

First Broken Bone

On the last day of our workshop, Will broke his foot! I was inspired by our friend Me Ra Koh, so I grabbed my camera on my way out the door to the hospital. Luckily this break was just a tiny fracture in his foot, barely perceptible on the x-ray, and it didn't cramp Will's adventurous style one little bit. In fact, he seemed to enjoy wearing his velcro cast! The visit to Children's Hospital was actually kind of fun (since our Will wasn't complaining too much except for being late for lunch)... the hardest part about visiting Children's is always seeing the other kids who are suffering from much more serious illnesses.

Business Boot Camp

We are finally ready to catch up on some blogging! Here are two shots from Business Boot Camp. We hosted this workshop taught by Liana Lehman in early December. The best part of the workshop for Matt and I was that we were forced to sit down for 2.5 days and really talk through a lot of our business goals and long term vision.

Liana covers a TON of material in this class, and it was presented with a perfect balance between heavy number crunching and deep soul-searching. Liana was really good at helping everyone get to the heart of the issues they face in their own businesses. One of her exercises was designed to help people clarify their personal values... this was a very interesting exercise for Matt and I! It was so cool to see how our values are different yet complimentary, and to see these values reflected in our business and personal goals.... Matt loves risk-taking, Enna loves adventure. Enna craves relationship-building, Matt craves romance. We both love travel, creativity, and our family.

Here are a couple of pictures of Liana and Eric horsing around. I cannot wait to share our new headshots that Liana took of Matt and I!

Hot Read: Maximize Your Time

Okay, we didn't post this for a while because we're really self-conscious about the title: we don't want to give the impression that we ONLY want to work 4 hours a week. But this is turning out to be such a great book that we just have to share. Tim Ferriss shares great insights and anecdotes about how to make your work-life more efficient, productive, and rewarding. We highly recommend this book!
