Thanks for a wonderful year here at MMD.
We covered a lot of ground here this year. Here’s a quick look back at what we’ve talked about:
We talked about the four possible levels of relationship, Monica Geller as friendship role model, and the rarity (or not?) of a great marriage. I wrote about my own adolescent marriage when Will and I celebrated 14 years together in June.
Some days we got philosophical: we talked about spinning out, taking the long way home, and the spiritual discipline of the long walk. I shared 5 words you need to practice saying out loud, and why it’s worth thinking about your dream job.
We talked about personality, one of my favorite geeky things: about highly sensitive people and people who have a long runway. We talked about personality types: Myers-Briggs and the enneagram and the Big 5.
We talked about practical stuff: I shared my favorite chocolate cake recipe, and our go-to special breakfast frittata. We talked about daily routines and managing our day-to-day. I shared our babysitter’s trick for faking a clean house.
My family moved this year, which spurred all kinds of posts. I talked about our decision to buy a house and a life, instead of just a house. I got a little overwhelmed and started angry cleaning. (And stress baking.) And I loved our new place but I hated to leave the library in my own backyard.
Thanks again for a terrific year! I’m looking forward to what’s in store for 2015. Happy New Year!
