Thanks for Saying Hello!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to my opening of “say hello to my little friends” on Friday at Cafe Estelle. It was great catching up with old and new friends and having such a wonderful team of support. You guys are the best. I look forward to many more shows in the future and hope you’ll continue to follow my growth and strange, spastic facial expressions along the way.

The silly faces rub off on good friends when you’re around each other enough…

Thanks so much to Bob and Marshall at Cafe Estelle for being so supportive and asking me to do a second installment of “say hello to my little friends.” Also, a huge thanks to Pete for helping me out during the past few months when I was overwhelmed with a ginormous to-do list and he was willing to put aside anything to assist (and thank you for supplying all of the alcohol). Thanks to my mom and dad for hauling their arses all the way out here from Delaware just to show me they care. You are too good to me (especially since I’m making my brother take care of you guys when you’re in diapers since he’s the oldest! (just kidding…ish)). Thanks to Pete’s family for coming out, you guys are my favorite second family evah. And last but not least, thanks to all of my friends who came out to show your support, it meant a lot, especially since it was arctic outside. For those who couldn’t make it, thanks for your sweet messages…I missed you and saved you some delicious Costco sammiches and peppermint bark.
