Current Update: Cristin has been busy as the Public Relations chair for the Viva! Vienna! festival hosted by the Rotary Club over Memorial Day weekend. All proceeds from this event go to charity, and last year the club raised over $180,000 during the 3-day event. Read some of Cristin’s thoughts about the festival in the cover article of The Vienna Voice for the month of May. Additionally, Cristin plans to spend some time in Florida with her Mom (including visiting Key West for the first time). Lastly, Cristin will learn this summer if she was overly aspirational with her garden planting this spring.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
