A Quick Appreciation Post

       It has been quite sometime since I've posted anything on this blog and I'm feeling pretty guilty about it. Not to you guys, because I'm pretty sure there are 3 of you who actively check this thing (thanks homies), but to myself for various reasons I wont dig into now. But get ready for some finger puke because I've jumped into this post without any direction really. :)
       So many wonderful opportunities have slapped me in the face recently and it took a few hours in a car by myself to really understand how lucky I have been this year. Ender and I drove up to Seattle from the San Francisco Bay Area a few days ago and 45 minutes into my 13 hour long drive I couldn't stop smiling. Its funny how the second I've got some time to myself I actually start to appreciate the things in my life. I've had so many doors open for me and so many people pushing me and helping me along, so many people picking me up when I stumble, I can't even begin to explain how thankful and appreciative I am for the people who are in my life. That being said... this alone time has been a godsend. I am unbelievably thankful for all of the people in my life but there is something about being alone that is... intoxicatingly invigorating. Having time to recharge my batteries makes me truly appreciate all the people in my life, loving and supporting me. I like to embrace these fleeting moments of pure bliss, because my brain has a funny way of tearing them right from my fingertips, so as the feelings are here and spilling out of me I'd like to take a second to tell everyone in my life that I adore every single one of you and appreciate everything that you do for me.

So this turned into a quick soppy love note from me to you... I'm not really sure how that happened... but it did. I hope you all enjoy your weekend and this photo of me making Ender cuddle me. Expect more soon.
