We've decided to call January 26 a "HollyDay" (Jess' middle name is Holly), as it marks the anniversary of the day Jess was released from the hospital with a vote of confidence that she was officially no longer dying.
We celebrated by having dinner at an Italian restaurant in Pleasanton, and then swinging by the Cheesecake Factory to bring home dessert.
I think it's safe to say that things are rather different now than they were a year ago—and rather for the better.
I don't know about the rest of you but I'm glad Jess survived.

What Italian restaurant in Pleasanton?
It was that place you recommended forever ago. Did YOUR leftovers come in a Chinese box???
Oooohhhh. I like that you gave it a name! Also, BJ and I had a vanilla malt to celebrate. It was quite pleasant. I think we'll make it a tradition. Because, y'know, we really SHOULD celebrate you being alive. [nods]
January 26th is my dad's birthday. I'm glad it's now the anniversary of another happy event. 🙂
I know! So fun to have found you (Jess) too! Congrats on getting married and (from what I can tell) moving to California. I spent a morning reading though your archives too 🙂
