Happy Holidays from the Hattas

What a difference a year makes

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said that the only thing that is constant is change. American "philosopher" Macklemore counters with, "change the game, don’t let the game change you." And so it was in 2014. This was a year that gave us a new home, new careers, new schools, new friends, the Polar Vortex, the Ice Bucket Challenge, Lebron James and about 15 unwanted pounds (for Hatta). Through all of that change, we remain goofy, grateful and short.

We wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season and look forward to another crazy year.

Where you can find us
