Happy Birthday Ricky!

Happy 25th birthday to my little sister Ricky. Quarter-century! If she’s that old, then I must almost be 30. Eek.

Tonight we have plans to go out country-line dancing in the Valley of Los Angeles. At a gay bar. Should be hilarious.

I bought her the Project Life Cobalt kit and some pocket pages. I am so excited to embark on (aka jump on the band wagon of) a year of Project Life and got my sister interested as well. Unfortnately, the kit I want, by crafter Elise Blaha Cripe, still isn’t available yet. Worst case I’ll get the Amber kit.

Yay for having my sister in Los Angeles and living in my apartment – partners in crime.

This Grateful Season – New Project

Today a really great work opportunity moved forward with a YES from those above me.

I’m still nervous that it’ll get snagged by red tape or shut down, but I am enjoying this moment while I have it. Success. A new project. Work supporting my bigger ideas.

And I am feeling the inkling of longer-term projects – this one today, writing for another site, training for a 1/2 marathon and doing 2013 Project Life. H is so busy with grad school + work, I need to fill my own time. Having my sister with us is really awesome (she cooks, she cleans, she walks the dog and she entertains me) but eventually she’ll move out (fingers crossed).

Mercury went direct on Monday. This is a good thing. I can feel the upswing, the movement, the energy churning again.

I tweeted this before, but I’ll write it again here: Today was a good day.

For the month of November, I write each day about something I’m grateful for and call it Grateful Season. It’s my way of reviewing the amazing year I’ve had and helps me focus on blogging during the crazy holiday season uptick. Feel free to join me – just make sure you let me know!

This Grateful Season – A Toast

 

A toast… to myself… past, present and future. May I continue to grow, to thrive rather than survive. I forget often how it really is all in me. I bring the awesome.

A toast…to you… whoever you are out there. May we continue to cross paths, to connect and cherish. I forget how often that’s all life is really about. You bring the awesome too.

Thank you for reading. I am grateful for this blog, a home to express myself and document my life. Celebrating my 300th post.

Cheers xo
