I'm so very thankful that I'll be spending winter holidays with my family this year. In my early 20's, I stubbornly spent many holidays alone here in Ohio in pursuit of coveted high-paying shifts or holiday shows. In 2013 I even learned the hard way that the only place open on Thanksgiving is Rally's on W117th haha. As much as I love Cleveland, winter has always been tough for me as I start to really feel that distance from my family. So, in the spirit of living authentically, I've chosen to prioritize those visits to see people I love this year. Above is my limited winter calendar. Come show some love while I'm around and maybe I'll be able to afford to buy my mom a super fancy Roomba for Christmas.
