Happy belated Thanksgiving. I apologize it has taken me this long to blog and for not keeping everyone updated of what has been going on in my crazy world for the past month. And quite honestly, with all that has happened since my Mom’s birthday and my last post, this one could go on for days on end. But the truth of the matter is, I am grateful to have been so busy and to have things to look forward to now. For that I give many thanks.
Since the end of October, I have channeled Angelina Jolie, produced 6 major events in New York City, met and received a Challenge Coin from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (received two others as well but this was the most impressive), bowled with Paul Pierce and the Celtics, produced an auction for a celebrity event in Boston, celebrated and shared a friend’s accolade from Esquire Magazine, dined at Nobu, went to my high school rivalry football game with one of my oldest and tried and true BFFs, witnessed live what could be the next hottest band from Boston, ate turkey dinner at a restaurant for the second time my whole life (only thing we missed were the leftovers) and spent some much needed quality time with my family and friends. More on all of these and updates from my fabulous fall events later this week.
Tomorrow is the first day of one of my favorite months of the year. I love the holidays and I love being home for the holidays. The lights are up on the Commonwealth Mall, the social calendar is getting full, Christmas music and scents fill the air, photo cards showing growing kids stuff the mailbox and the promise of new beginnings is just around the corner. Our stinky economy and financial situations may shout ba humbug, but our spirit and attitude can still shine bright (especially if you can score that pair of boots you have been drooling over all fall now at 70% off).
But this season try to remember it is not about what you can or can not afford. It is about celebrating what is already in your life, the goals that make you strive for more and the people that surround you and support you with both.
For that I give extra thanks.
