We start this post with some sad news... this year we are saying goodbye to some awesome team members, who have decided it is time to move on to other things. We are saying bye to Anita, Krisy, Deena, Catie and Sue! :( I would like to say thank you to these awesome ladies, and i hope we will still see them around.  I would like to also say a massive THANK YOU to Sue, who has been by my side for the past 3 years, helping out from the moment i decided to take on this challenge site.
