Forgot to give thanks for being divorced yesterday! No more stress-filled hours shopping, spending, wrapping, and shipping gifts to people who own too much already, myself included. Quality time spent with loved ones–that’s my favorite gift. And it’ll be here next week with my mom’s arrival and our second annual NYC Birthday Extravaganza Weekend with G. Mom wants to see the Rockettes, so the Rockettes it is. Another stay at another lovely hotel (free thanks to G’s gazillion bonus points), fab birthday dinner at Candle 79 (with celebratory and eco-friendly Rainforest cocktail–they plant a tree when you order one!), the city decked out for the holidays, the people, energy, walking, the subway, and the 43YOV donning a big smile the whole time.
Oh what fun! I’ll ride the residual feel-good wave into 2015.
