I've Been Busy

As shocking as this may sound, I haven't been posting much lately because I've been busy having a life! I know, WTF, right? Believe me, I am still reeling from the shock myself.

In the past few months I have launched a wine club which has already met three times, traveled to Oregon and Santa Barbara to go wine tasting, cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner for a few close friends, attended a performance of A Comedy of Errors, a chamber music performance and a charity luncheon with Smallville star, Allison Mack. In between, I've had lunches, dinners and happy hours with friends and realized that $3 beers can make life worth living even on really bad days.

The other day it occurred to me that I'm doing things I always imagined I'd do someday when "real life" started. I guess that means it has! I know I still have a lot of work to do, but I've made progress.

As a way of figuring out what I want more of in my life to make it a life worth living, I've been compiling a list of things that make me happy. Here's what I've come up with so far:

$3 Beers
Really good friends (to drink $3 beers with you, of course)
Travel--I've been to England, France, Santa Barbara and Portland (twice) this year!
Small Batch Bourbon
David Tennant
The tv shows Castle, Psych, Bitchin' Kitchen & Justified
Did I mention $3 Beers?
Wine Club
The happy hour wings at SmithHouse Tap & Grill

I mentioned the $3 beers, right?
