A well needed break!

After smashing through a record number of Prius projects this month, working long hours and finalizing all oversea trade show arrangements at my work (we’re exhibiting in Canada, Mexico and Brazil in addition to domestic shows), it’s finally time to slow down and take a well deserved break with the lady!
