for the magnitude of the opportunities I have been given this year
to be working at a place where I get to draw every single day
to see my friends find success and happiness in their lives
for the upcoming weddings of some of my absolutely favorite people
for my giant, beautiful, smart behemoth of a dog
for a house that’s just my size
to be named godmother to a very special, very tiny little girl
for my family, who makes all other families seem boring by comparison
for ugly sweaters and mugs full of cider
for all of my totally rad supporters and followers.
thank you, all of you, for making my life so much richer.
