    I selected the challange to write down 3 things I am grateful for each day.  I never realized how easy it is to recognize three things no matter how difficult situations might seem.  Helps add perspective to what's important.

    Looking for something great to eat at work?  head to the garden Atrium, lost of great meatless and healthy options.  The atrium is definitely helping me achieve my meatless goals!
