Have you met Anna? Do yourself a favor, and go see her. She is brilliant, hysterical, talented and just as normal as the rest of us.
I'm so happy to be here today on your blog. Thank you for the invite.
Listen, a little birdie told me that you've been facing some tough challenges lately and, although I don't have any details of the situation (frickin' tight-lipped birdie), I want you to know that I'm there for you.
In an effort to try and raise your spirits at the start of this brand-new year, I'd like to share with you some of my favorite quotations – time-honored touchstones that have seen me through many a greasy patch on life's highway.
I hope these sayings provide you with the comfort of knowing that somewhere out there, some very wise people have already stepped in every cow flop in the pasture...and in this way we can learn from them. Enjoy.
