Happy New Year! (Welcome, 2018!)

new year's eve

It’s been a year, huh? Lots of terrible and lots of wonderful. I am going to focus on the latter, and remember to be grateful for all of the positive people that I’m certain will be here well into 2018 and beyond, holding me up, loving me, and making this world a truly delightful place. I am lucky to have such a wonderful family, so many deep friendships, and the previously unimaginable love of the perfect partner for me.

I’m going to dedicate this mix to two people who didn’t even exist when we rang in 2017 – my niece Penny and my goddaughter Emelyn. (As an atheist, that’s a title I sure never thought I’d get!) May they always feels so loved and able to look at each new year as being filled with opportunity, adventure, new connections, and surprises.

Hope you all have a wonderful 2018 and feel as lucky and loved as I do right now.

That’s it for the 2017 season. See you in a few months!
