Hi, friends. What to say?! I love you! I hope that you are safe and healthy. I hope that you have people in your life who you are able to (remotely) connect with, so that you can lift each other up. I hope you have enough to eat. I also hope that you didn’t make the mistake I made, of stocking up on healthy food and forgetting that you would need junk food during these trying times! (At the moment, I would commit utterly unspeakable acts for a pizza.) I hope you live somewhere where you’re able to get outside at least once a day (six feet apart, and don’t touch anything)! And I hope you’re holed up with people or animals you love, who love you.
Pals, I am grateful for you, for this whole community. I’m so glad we’re here together. And if I were to order a pizza right now, it would have: pineapple AND pepperoni, and a drizzle of honey and sriracha, and maybe basil leaves? Might get wild and dip it in ranch! What’s on your pizza, friends?
