Cheers to the New Year 4

“The greatest gift I’ve received in the past year has been the community I’ve found in Bellevue that has now become family. My faith in God has to me to be present, patient and open to change. I’ve learned that when you trust your heart and take a leap of faith, you either learn from the fall or you land right where you belong. For the new year, I’m ready to take new leaps.”—Earl Benjamin, SoulCycle instructor

“Whatever happens to you, you can either see it as a course and suffer it, or you can see it as a blessing and make use of it. Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers,  the believers and thinkers but mostly of all, surround your self with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it your self. 

This is the beginning of anything you want.” —Maja Arnold, jewelry designer

“Dear Eastsiders,

Thank you so much for a fantastic first year at Carmine’s – Bellevue! We hope you have enjoyed our restaurant as much as we have enjoyed becoming part of the community. Cheers to a fantastic 2017, and to what 2018 has in store!

Salute!” —Carmine & Philip Smeraldo, Owners of Carmine’s – Bellevue

“Having worked in the fitness industry for 10+ years, you’d think I’d be burned out on New Year fitness challenges and health resolutions. But truth is, any inspiration to become healthier and happier is worth celebrating. Here’s to kicking off 2018 with your own big, bold, goals!”—Sami Sweeney, Pure Barre studio owner

“Innovation isn’t just for business and technology. The new year gives everyone a chance to make a fresh start and reinvent themselves. Wake up on January 1 saying, “bring it on 2018, I’m ready for you!” —Moya Skillman, Founding Member at AVENUE Properties
