We had a lovely day, although with a slightly smaller crowd than in past years.
Y’all missed an incredible meal and lots of good company. sambear spent most of the day cooking, and curiousmay9 did several dishes, too. I did my family’s traditional pear salad with a slight change, but was otherwise uninvolved with actual food preparation. shadowkatt was incredibly helpful with the shopping and helping to get the house ready for guests.
My life partner, my domestic partner, my daughter—you are incredible blessings in my life. You make it possible for me to do so much more than I could without your companionship and support. Our home is a joyful, peaceful, safe place, for which I’m grateful. Thank you.
I’m thankful for all the wonderful people in my life, some of whom I know thanks to LJ. When rasilio first mentioned LJ to me a few years back, I simply could not understand why anyone would do this online journaling thing. I’m glad that sambear tried it, leading me to create an account.
Thank you for being here and part of my world.
