gratitude- and a really big YAY!!

K, so I realized shortly after publishing my slightly-longer-than-necessary autobiography that I forgot to include two important things:

a) if I were in charge of the world I also would have gone back in time and adopted out Adolf Hitler to a lovely hippie Canadian family; and

b) I don't take a single second of my life thus far for granted. Every moment, every memory, good or bad, has all lead up to me becoming the person I am today, and I wouldn't change any of that for the world. So I apologize if I came across as bragging or that I didn't appreciate how lucky and blessed I feel I've been, because not a day goes by that I don't appreciate all the friends I've made, all the adventures I've been on, and all the adversity in my life that has made me stronger.

Just wanted to clear that up :)

Also, two more notes of gratitude (the last one with an added large helping of HELL YEAH!) that I neglected to mention earlier:

First of all, a huge THANK YOU to Dionne over at City of Dionne for hosting a fantastic giveaway that I won! If you guys haven't checked out Dionne's blog, it's about twelves shades of adorable - Dionne does all her own illustrations and photographs for her blog topics, hosts incredibly awesome giveaways (like the one I won - a delightful little peacock teacup in my favorite color, how cute is that??) and is an all-around generally freakin' cool girl.

So Dionne, I'm sorry that my gratitude is a little belated, but thank you so much for your generosity, kindness, unfailing support of other bloggers, and very sweet comments. You officially rock (not that we didn't already know that).

and finally, I am so excited to tell you guys:

The web-series I'm in, Hell Froze Over, won its first award at its very first festival!!!!!

Yup, this weekend HFO premiered at the New York Television Festival with over 50 other applicants, and we won the Outside the Box Award!! (how more appropriate can you get?)

We are so excited that all the hard work for Season One of Hell Froze Over paid off at the festival, so keep your fingers crossed that this means people will be interested in financing a second season of the show :)

YAY!!!

You certainly didn't sound like you were bragging in your last post, so don't worry about that! You just sounded like you were thankful for your awesome life so far!

Thanks for the mention, you are so sweet! I am so glad that random.org picked your name, you know you are one of my favorites :).

And that is FREAKING AWESOME that you won an award for your web series. You already know that I think it's the bee's knees. Utterly hilarious and original and fun. Congrats, you totally deserve it!

Congratulation!
It's nice to read your sense of gratitudes towards life...
I'm also thankful for all the mistakes that I've made along the way as well... vulnerability should be part of our lives I think. Lovely week dear~
