As is my family’s way, we will soon gather for eating, drinking, drinking, and, of course drinking! Before I head over the river and through western PA, I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a warm and happy holiday. I also want to express how thankful I am for you, for all my friends on and offline. I am honored and blessed to know you, and appreciate your talents, your kindness, and your comradery. There’s much to be thankful for, so many joys and blessings both large and small, obvious and subtle, simple and awesome. But without friends to share all life’s myriad of experiences and wonders…it’s all for naught.
Thank you all for being my friend and here’s to you! In a matter of hours, I’ll be sure to raise a glass- or thirty- in your honor!
Thank you to everyone for the deluge of incredibly sweet and altogether awesome birthday greetings and wishes! I’m doing party things and getting ready for the big day, but I wanted to send a quick than you here until I can properly express my gratitude to individual messages and comments.
