archaic. (interjection) – used to express gratitude or surprise
i believe strongly in the power of gratitude. of being thankful for what we have. of expressing appreciation.
it keeps our souls healthy and it brings joy to the front.
so on mondays, the dreaded return to the grind day, i plan to begin with an attitude of gratitude. not always food-related, but sometimes. maybe a product i love. possibly a place i miss… always gramercy!
to explain the radio silence on this here site, my crew of four just returned from a week down in charlottesville.
honestly, i hesitated posting about it today. we just returned yesterday and i don’t feel like i’m prepared to do that place and that trip justice in what it means to my heart.
i will always love charlottesville.
so many great years spent there. so many sweet friends made. the beautiful rolling mountains and green landscapes. the great local shops and restaurants. the university town that feels alive with youth and culture. just enough of a southern town to make me feel right at home. the birthplace of much of this country’s history… and my daughter.
it was good for our souls.
thank you to the friends we saw and played and ate with. i’m just sorry that there wasn’t enough time to see everyone we love there. and that it is no longer our home…
but today i’m grateful for charlottesville and for the memories we’ve made (and hope to make again some day) in that sweet town.
