Just Plain Happy
‘Tis the season to count your blessings and tell the ones around you how much you love and appreciate them. So to all you loyal readers, THANK YOU for keeping up with the green apples every day. Writing this blog challenges us and keeps our brain juices a’ flowin’ and in our opinion, that’s a good thing.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say how incredibly blissful and fulfilled I feel every day. I know some may think it’s cheesy, but I want to say (write) out loud that this might just be the happiest I’ve felt my whole life.
Let’s be honest, 2008 started out as a crap-fest. With many people close to us learning of illnesses, to the downturn in the economy, to friends unfairly losing their jobs, it feels weird to say that 2008 was the best year of my life. But it's because also in 2008 I got married to my best friend (and had the most kick-ass, true-to-ourselves wedding), we traveled and ate our way around Italy (and London!), and we packed it all up and fulfilled a life-long dream of moving to New York City.
So to all my awesome and inspiring friends and family, I LOVE YOU.
Here’s to a fantastic 2009.
