i've spent the last few days, including new year's eve and day, with two of my best friends. we spent most of our time together lying in bed, eating yummy food (chipotle! mmmm.) and watching, oh so appropriately, DVD's of friends. i am so greatful to have begun my 2009 surrounded by love and laughter.
i'm reading jonathan safran foer's extremely loud and incredibly close, which i have wanted to read for awhile now. i just started it, but i am loving it so far. this passage made me tear up a little in the middle of the borders' cafe - "We need enormous pockets, pockets big enough for our families, and our friends, and even the people who aren’t on our lists, people we’ve never met, but still want to protect. We need pockets for boroughs and for cities, a pocket that could hold the universe."
wishing you a 2009 with plenty of love, gratitude, and enormous pockets.
