AMAZING blog alert.

oh my gosh, you guys. have i found an amazing blog for you.

well, actually, karey m. found it, because she's awesome like that. but i want to share it with you, just in case you haven't seen it yet.

leah dietrich, a los angeles-based ad agency creative director, pens a thank you note a day--to everything and everyone, from alcohol to movies to books to colors--and her writing is just.beautiful. thxthxthx is one of those blogs that will make you feel like laughing when your eyes settle in on one word and then crying when they hit the next. also, it's a giant reminder that there is so much to be thankful for and to laugh about every day.

the other day, i was feeling a little off. a combination of coffee, hormones, and restlessness was churning in my body, trying to whip up an all-too-familar recipe: anxiety (i'm fairly prone to this. it's the sensitive person's curse, i think). i tried to stave it off by going for a bridge run, but that didn't help--and in fact, halfway through i almost had to turn around. but i pushed forward and, as i did so, i took a deep breath and took myself out of my head for a moment. below me was almost blindingly blue water; above me was sparkling yellow sunshine; enveloping me was crisp, 65-degree air. what, really, was there to be anxious about in that moment?

that's when i got home and discovered leah's blog. talk about cementing that bridge-run-induced perspective shift. thxthxthx to leah for writing it, and to karey for finding it, and then tweeting about it. don't you love this online community of ours? it's something i, for one, am very, very thankful for.
