Hello, 2017! We're Back...

Hello, 2017!

      

In our last post we mentioned that according to numerology, 2016 was all about endings. And we were left feeling a little depressed… BUT according to numerology, 2017 sees the cycle start again, and therefore this year is all about beginnings. One door closes and another opens. Yay!
