Today I wanted to take a second to say thank you to all of you beautiful people that made it out on Friday for my birthday and/or sent your love from far away places. Birthdays offer a great opportunity to sit back and appreciate the important people in life and I wouldn’t miss this opportunity for the world.
First to my Philly friends that made it out, you guys have been there since the beginning. Your families have housed me during moments of crisis, fed me at holidays and offered timely advice when ever I’ve needed. Thank you!
Crasians, you ladies have been a staple in my life since I got to NYC. We’ve crushed marketing projects about the Philippines, we’ve sung drunken melodies in Washington Square Park, we’ve taken cabs across eastern Europe (bad idea), we’ve danced in the dessert until sun rise.. the incredible memories are far too many to list here. Thank you!
Fiends - so many late night conversations in bake city (coral towers) about who knows what. We’ve had frightening moments of spilled spinal fluid, we’ve lifted many a heavy weight, we’ve spoken at length about various investment ideas, read incredible books, and now are enjoying each others company as we prepare to take another huge step in life. Thank you!
Dance crew - we’ve shared many a late night and many a dirty beat. Those moments when we’re watching our favorite DJs with our arms around each other and smiles ear to ear… there aren’t a lot of moments that top these. Thank you!
Business partners - we’ve learned so much together. None of us had the slightest idea of that we were doing, but we put our trust in each other and dove in. And it’s only the beginning. Very much looking forward to tackling more challenges and growing together. Thank you!
Work friends - can’t even begin to say how excited I am about what we’re building together. We have an incredible team, killer product and massive opportunity in front of us. Thank you for everything you do on a daily basis.
My beautiful fiancé - tell me she’s not the best party host in the game. The party was lit! No, but seriously, I wouldn’t be where I am without you. You force me to be more empathetic, more caring… more of a human being. It’s funny, I’ve always felt like a pretty confident person, but you constantly hold me to a higher standard. You force me to reflect and think about the many ways I can improve. Thank you for your unrelenting love and pushing me to be better!
Honestly, everyone. Thank you so much for everything you do and just being you. I love you all so much and looking forward to another year of growth and shenanigans!
