Happy Thanksgiving

Vintage postcard originally sent November 25th, 1908. Greeting on back here.

There is so much to be thankful for this year. Blog life is all !!!!!!! and "amazing" but reality is so much better than fiction. This year will go down as the year I discovered blogs and, on lonely days, was happy to feel a connection with so many of you.

Let's not sugar coat this shit show. Life is often hard, days are long and jeans are tight.

Today, this very day, I am thankful for a job that I love, for this beautiful city of angels that I call home, for some solid friendships that have spanned over two decades, and for new friends, who sometimes understand me more.

I am most thankful for 2E. Our relationship is similar to someone spinning you around three times fast, making a kamakazee woo woo in your mouth, forcing you to switch clothes with the person to the right of you and then close your eyes and describe the person to your left. Confusing. Not what I ever imagined but in many ways so much more.

Have I ever told you guys that 2E is a mechanical and aerospace engineer who designed the complete overhead passenger service units for the Saab 2000 aircraft and has a brain programmed like Iron Man's. How he hooked up with this Howard Stern loving, US Weekly reading, Hills watching rebel we'll never know but we fit. Not every day but overall.

Today is a day to look at the glass as half full, the silver lining in the clouds, the light at the end of some of our tunnels. To give thanks, to hear thanks, to feel the love and to eat, drink, and be merry.

Viva!

I agree. Hope your day was especially good.

Annie,
This is a beautiful post! I love it! Your writing is gorgeous and your design style impresses me so much!

It's so funny that we went to high school together and I never really knew you...and now feel like I know you so much through your blog! :)

Hopefully we can hang out in the "real" world some time soon!
