Yesterday, my daughter Ali, packed up her car and drove up north to San Francisco. She is starting her junior year at San Francisco State. This is not the first time she has left the nest, but it seems she has grown up a bit, and kept referring to San Francisco as her new home. She called last night and said she was looking at the lights of the Golden Gate Bridge, and was excited to be in a new city, starting a new year. She is a good kid, and I hope it is filled with new adventures and infinite possibilities.
My husband and I went to one of our favorite italian restaurants for dinner, not even a mile from our house. Who was sitting at the table across from us????? Greg Brady, as in The Brady Bunch, otherwise known as Barry Williams. We kept staring and saying to each other is that who I think it is. We were eavesdropping on their conversation and we heard the woman who was with him call him Barry. There was an adorable little boy also sitting with them. His name is Brandon. How do I know that? We came home and immediately my husband looked up his bio on the internet and he has a 5 year old son named Brandon. My husband said don't you dare stop and say Hi to him. I wouldn't think of it, but if it were George Clooney or Brad Pitt or Tom Selleck....that's another story!
Everyday is filled with surprises....unexpected moments, and possibilities.
I hope 2009 brings all of you surprises, special moments and endless possibilities.
Happy New Year!
