3 Gratitudes

Today I'm thankful that I can walk... I know, seems silly... but after that bike crash that could've left me paralyzed or worse, I'm still stoked to be able to walk around downtown -- in fact, will go for a jog around the waterfront for lunch today! Yipee!

I'm also grateful for things to look forward to... I'm excited to travel, and am realizing if things go as planned, I'm looking at about 6 months out from Asia!

Finally -- today thankful for cool co-workers. I clicked with my co-worker Caitlin immediately, and I'm so glad I get to see her everyday at work. Girl cracks me up!! :)

Daddy's Girl...

I sure do miss my Dad. Each day I put on his Mickey Mouse watch and think of him – something he wore for so many years that now reminds me of him as I glance at it periodically throughout the day. I feel like he’s with me, watching over me, and I want to live a better life knowing that he’s aware of everything. 

I hope he’s proud of me. I hope he approves of my career and the work that I do. I hope he’s not disappointed in me for going through with a divorce, and I hope he isn’t disappointed in any decisions that I make. I hope he would support me packing up my life and moving to Asia to teach. Someday… I hope he’ll be there with me, sharing in my exotic experiences, learning lessons from afar. 

Most of all, I hope he knows how much I think of him, look up to him, miss him and love him.

3 Gratitudes:

Thankful that Starbucks is being recognized as a business that supports marriage equality, (since I go there every morning)...

Thankful for a job that allows me to go to Starbucks every morning, (work-life balance and financially speaking...)


Thankful for my "sisters"... my real sister and I had a great time hanging out on Saturday! Got to spend lots of quality time with Coyla Monster Sunday and Monday, too! :)

3 Gratitudes

2 years since the bicycle crash that messed me up... I'm grateful to be riding to work everyday on the same bike and loving every minute of it!

Good friends coming home... I've missed P and M so much the last few months... super excited for them to be coming home in a couple of weeks!!

Good friends who feel like home... it was so good to see Jo-Lee last weekend. Love that girl like a sister, and seeing her reminds me that we're best friends forever! Now... and then!
