This year hasn’t been my favorite (has it been anyone’s?) so I’m extra excited about 2017. I don’t believe in making New Years’ resolutions (you can choose to do or not do something any day of the year), but I like to spend the last week of December thinking about how my year went, what worked, and what didn’t. I learned a LOT this year:
I learned that friendship isn’t dependent on how long you’ve known someone for; that the best people are those who show up (and bring wine), that it’s ok to be devastatingly sad about something and then laugh hysterically about it a few months later; that your true friends will let you be as ridiculous as you want to be, but will mock you for it forever after (and it’s a good thing!); that family can be people who you’re not related to, and that the human experience is vast and varied and deeply humbling.
Thank you to those of you who have kept reading this blog, and who continue to follow me on social media. I have a couple of posts lined up for you this week, so I’m hoping you’ll stick around and that we’ll get to know each other a little better–for real, this time.
