Tequila, vampires and the best friends a girl can have

Last night, I went to Lucy and Chet's house to celebrate Rosh Hashanah with them and a few of their Jewish friends.

I really like Jewish holidays. It may be just because it is tradition that I have not been witnessing my entire life, but the symbolism is always really beautiful and intriguing to me.

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. And, goodness, I needed a symbolic fresh start. And a few shots of tequila. And the apples dipped in honey, eaten with hopes for a "sweet" new year.

I ate a lot of apples and honey.

When I left, Lucy handed me this gift bag.

Filled with treats from her, Chet and Colleen.

Chocolate, a candle, tissues and season 1 of The Vampire Diaries.

And a sweet card. Made a little less sweet.

Because they are awesome.

I have the best friends.

And that most certainly includes all of you.

Though you're not here physically, pouring me shots of tequila and buying me junk food, I certainly feel all of the good vibes you all have been sending my way. Your comments and emails and prayers and positive thoughts and tweets are so appreciated. (And - bonus! - lower in calories.)

I don't know how I got so lucky, to have such a great group of people in my corner. Please know that you all kick incredible amounts of ass. And, while I hope that you never need me to buy you dark chocolate or to send you an email to remind you to keep your chin up, if that time ever comes, I will gladly return the favor.

I think you're awesome.

I know, when I think "Judaism", I usually think "Tequila"!!!

And I will say it again...I Love Lucy!

LOVE THE CARD! I think you are awesome as well because I know when ever I say that I want baked goods that you would really bring them to me if possible. And just knowing that makes me smile.

Awesome! So glad you have such great friends -- love the card.
Love that you ate apples and honey -- I told one of my bosses yesterday to enjoy his apples and honey in hopes of one of our projects becoming sweet (it is currently bitter!).
Hope everyone is doing okay --

Keep on keeping that chin up, A!
