I wanted to take a moment to say Happy Thanksgiving! I truly appreciate each and every one of you, and I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season.
This time of year always has me feeling sentimental. Between October and January, much of my headspace is reserved for taking stock of the year, thinking about everything I’m grateful for, reassessing personal goals, and looking forward to the coming year. Today, I’m especially thankful because I’ve hit the one-year retired milestone. While 2020 has presented a number of challenges, as well as a fair amount of frustration and disappointment, I still have so much gratitude. We were able to do and see quite a bit more than I thought possible, I forged new friendships and cultivated old ones, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, and I continued to grow and learn in a number of ways. Thank you for following along on this journey with me. You — my friends and family — will always be the best part of my day.
Wishing you all good health, love, laughter, and happiness. May you spread as much light and kindness as possible.
