Forgive me for being a bit narcissistic, but this is not big picture positivity; I have no idea what will happen with the economy, the wars, global climate change, or any other relevant social issue, though I hope for the best possible outcomes all around. Rather, I feel in my core that the new year is going to be very good to Liz and me. I envision us accomplishing everything we set out to do, and as we grow with the year, I see us working hard and succeeding, not only with our mushroom enterprise, but with everything else that comes our way.
2009 brought several personal highlights, namely, completing graduate school and getting the hell out of Dodge. Liz and I made major changes in our lives—changes that have already begun to pay off. And more changes that will have a positive impact on our health, happiness, and success are on the way.
We bid adieu to the past year by celebrating with friends at Boccelli's in BF. This wonderful Italian delicatessen hosted its last hoorah by serving up delicious eats and boozy delights to a cacophony of guests and assorted musicians. Surrounded by friends, we toasted the past and the future—laughing, dreaming, and ultimately welcoming 2010 with open arms.
