Happy Thanksgiving 2012!

Best wishes to everyone for a hearty and warm Thanksgiving this year!

As with most recent years, I'll be spending tomorrow with my parents and sister at my mother's best friend's house, enjoying turkey and counting our blessings.  Roger and I celebrated with friends this weekend as well, and hosted what has become a tradition for his friends from college, Friendsgiving, with a potluck for thirty people.  It was a lot of fun, and I got a several new and delicious recipes.

I've been slower about posting this year, because things have been busy, but I'm so grateful for every facet of my life.  I've been surrounded by friends and family, and wholeheartedly in love all year.  If that weren't enough, my job and school have both been going well, and I've been honored to teach at Goldwater Hospital this semester.  The year hasn't been without its challenges, but I've been slowly trying to take care of my health, to spend more time figuring out where my priorities lie and what my  goals are, and to keep my heart and mind open.  Roger and I are looking forward to a warm vacation in Florida soon, and to both of our final semesters at school, and then to figuring out our next big steps.

Blessed indeed.

    1. I've been teaching a poetry workshop for patients at a long-term care facility. I'm hoping to write more about it soon, because it's been a great experience so far. In the spring, I'll also be teaching a fiction and poetry workshop to undergrads at NYU. I'm very excited, and also a little nervous!
