Weekend Things: Here’s to 2016!

I’m probably putting too much thought into this intro, but I feel the pressure to start my first post of 2016 with something as sparkly, fresh and inspirational as the beginning of a new year!  Lest I should waste any more time on that, I think I’ll just jump right in.  That attitude’s gotta mean something good for this year, right?
