Blog Fail.

Oops I did it again. I said I was here to stay and then I disappeared for a while. Its been one of those busy times. One in which the the world spins, whisking you on an even faster whirl wind ride. I missed writing my thanksgiving thanks and I am just days before xmas and I haven't done a single gift guide or anything of the sort-Total Blog Fail!

My dear friends, please forgive me for this long absence. I thought about writing and I wanted to write, but each time I sat down at my computer, there seemed to be another task that was pulling me away from Classic Twist. I will be continuing to write and keeping up with fashion, interiors, photography and much more....I really do promise!

Right now, I'd like to reflect 2009. This year has been a unique year in so many ways. I've been shaken to the core, stripped down and forced to really take a close look at how I was living my life before and what values I have for living my life going forward. Some periods of this shake down have not been pretty, while others have blossomed and flourished more then I could have imagined.

As we near the close of 2009, I'd like to reflect on what I'm thankful for this year.....

I am thankful for my wonderful boyfriend who has been my biggest cheerleader this year. Supporting me in every crazy idea I threw out in the wind. He has been my backbone and I couldn't have done it without him.

For our cat, Max. He is a crazy little kitten and even though he attacks me and thinks I am a cat too, I still love the crazy Max cat.

For our lovely apartment in NYC.

Central Park. A little piece of nature, which is so calming when you live in a big city. Taking long walks everyday has helped me stay sane.

For  a new understanding of life and how you can't take things for granted.

For my health.

For learning that laughter can be a healer and the best medicine.

For my best friends that consistently listen to my problems, cry and laugh with me.

Saying good-bye to cable forever. Honestly if you haven't zapped cable do it now. You will cherish your time amongst loved ones, read and just be happier all around.

Expanding my mind and soul in all areas of my life.

For my family for being a great support system.

For red wine.

And for all the small things. They really do matter and life is so much better when approached with optimism and a smile.

**I feel like I could go on and on and on, but I've said enough for now**

May this next week be spent amongst family and loved ones. Relax, eat lots of food, most importantly smile and be happy!

I will be traveling to West Virgina for the rest of the week and I'll have very limited access to e-mail, thus we will meet again in a week.

I hope all your holiday wishes come true!
