The Giants won their final home game tonight. I jumped up and down and high-fived strangers at a bar in West Portal. I needed that. I think I finally understood the fan phenomenon, where a win from your hometown team makes you feel like a winner for a moment, because you invested your faith for a few days or hours and something good happened. My heart needed to feel a celebration after the heartbreaking events of this week (losing my best friend of 10 years).
I’m grateful for the learning opportunities of my employment, and especially for the love of my boyfriend of nine months. I really could not have imagined I could love someone so effortlessly, so completely. I’m looking forward to celebrating his birthday and Thanksgiving this month with him and his family.
