      It has been years! Can you believe it? Hope you are well and staying warm in Athens!

    I was going through some of your older posts and didn’t realise how long you’ve been blogging for. So thank you for continuing to write and inspiring us all!

      Thanks, Arash! Yes, I’ve been at a a while. Actually, been feeling a bit disconnected from the blog for a little while now. So I just kind of do it when I want…feeling the need to step back a little. But of course, I’m thankful to have readers like you who stay with me, no matter what!

    I have loved getting to know you and I can’t believe it’s been.. what.. 3 years now? When we went out to sushi and danced in that DJ box and ate fries and I harassed the people at the diner (who were so kind to my drunken self – but I expect nothing less from North Carolinians). It’s crazy to see what has happened since and the memories we’ve made! I feel like we’ve known each other for so long and I’m so grateful to call you a friend. I’m thankful for you and for your continued support that TRULY means more than I can express.

    I feel like so much good is on the horizon. Thank YOU for… everything.

    Love you, V!

      You know I love you too, Erika!

      I know…the time flies! I find it so interesting how our paths keep crossing and connecting, and I too am grateful for your friendship. We’ve partied together in NY and NC, and grown together as bloggers. I can ALWAYS count on you. I love that. It’s hard to find people who actually practice what they preach.

      You’re like a ray of healthy, life-giving sunshine in my life. I can’t believe how smart, disciplined, and dedicated you are, so early! When I said that I learn so much from you, I meant it. You are such a wonderful influence, and I’m glad (and happy to help) you share your light with the rest of the world.

      Keep on truckin’ babe…I can see 2013 is going to be trans formative for you!

    I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving V!

    Sometimes I think it’s crazy that we haven’t met in person yet. “Meeting” you will always be one of the things I treasure most about becoming a blogger myself and I look forward to the day it finally DOES happen in person.

    Wishing you and your family the best for the coming year; I am sure that the best is yet to come!

      You too, B. One day, we shall meet! Hope you are in a better place now…and yes, the best is yet to come! PS: Why aren’t we friends on FB? I mean personal account friends?
