these are a few of my favorite things

I haven't written for awhile, and don't really have much to write, so thought I would just make a random list of things that make me happy--drives by the beach, reading a good book, getting thoughtful emails, taking walks, visiting family who all live too far away-especially my little people, naps, going to a matinee, watching Top Chef and Project Runway, making my mom laugh, giant microphone karaoke, just hanging around with my friends, home decorating magazines, the Container Store, eating chips and guacamole, sparkly jewelry, watching a Jane Austen movie, taking trips, I Love Lucy, my new brown suede boots, and remembering that I have a lot to be thankful for.

Don't be impressed- my pet peeve list is probably right around the corner.

she's gone, oh i, oh i'd better learn how to face it

On January 1st, my dear Christine moved out and into a place of her own. When she first told me I was supportive and totally understood her wanting to have her own place. I was also a little sad for me and feeling a little left behind, but then I remembered how excited I was to get my first place and realized that she must be feeling the same way. And oh yeah, that the world doesn't revolve around me. I will certainly miss having her around though. Do you know how great it is to have a live in board certified therapist who also happens to be one of your dearest friends? That's good stuff! I've really appreciated her insights. She would often give me a whole new perspective on something. Christine's so smart, fun, beautiful, organized, helpful, good, fun, talented and funny! I've gathered some great Christine quotes and memories the past couple of years. And of course, I still plan on seeing her often and sharing more good times. We had already gotten together on the 2nd. A few miles will not keep us apart! I love you, Christine!
