Thank you to my amazing friends and family
slumber party at my amazing friend Abbey's house. It would have been so much fun. Abbey, I promise we'll make it down soon!
Today Jake left for the gift fair with our other awesome friend Sara. After my doctor told me I shouldn't travel we called Sara and she said would go with Jake and help with the show. There wasn't any hesitation, either. Sara, this means more to me than you know. Today I will spend the day in bed with my dogs and drink orange juice. When I feel better, I will join them at the show.
In the past few weeks I have cried in front of quite a few strangers (sorry USPS workers, you're the ones who lost an overnight package/rush order two days before we were supposed to leave town). Today I cried becuase I have such an incredible support system. I am grateful for a husband who brings me water at 3am and holds me while I have the chills, who reprinted the lost rush job, who is driving right now to a trade show, and who is my best friend. I am grateful for my sister who wrote me a letter telling me to slow down. I am grateful for my mom and dad who sent flowers and balloons yesterday. I am grateful for friends and colleagues who are understanding and supportive and caring. I am grateful for my online friends who send me advice at midnight. And when I say online, it is in no way meant to marginalize the friendships we have, it's just that I've not yet gotten to give you a hug in person :) Thank you all so much.
