Just a few more “Thank You’s”…

by John on November 30, 2011

It’s been a bit of a rough week here in South Florida. My one year old bounced back from a small bit of pneumonia. She’s great now, but has decided that she wants to play at 3:00 am. This has been happening for the past five nights in a row.

Funny thing about putting a baby back to sleep at 3:00 am you get some really quit time to think and I realized that there were a few peeps I didn’t mention in my “thanks” post last week. Why? Well I thought the list was getting a bit too long and some people may not want to read that crap.

So while there’s a good chance random phone calls will happen before year end, here are a few people I wanted to mention directly and say that I’m genuinely grateful and thankful that we’ve had time to interact and spend time together this year:

Joe Gerstandt: We had a chance to interact a few times this year. When I reflect on those moments, I smile because I can recall you observing everything. Thank you for speaking truth to power and being a source of inspiration. If it’s within my power to help, then it’s done.

Teresa Morris:
Our lunch in Vegas was legendary. I love the fact that we trade salsa/meringue/bachata tunes back and forth. You are an amazing, smart, and loving person (all that from a few conferences eh?) I appreciated the time we spent chatting, sharing music, and eating. If y’all drag your sorry butts to Miami, dinner with my family (including the French mother-in-law)!

Kris Dunn: Thanks for taking the time to chat and especially for the time at HRFL this year. Funny how some of the best conversations start with the funniest lines… “He’s on a plane to Nicaragua” will remain on of the best opening lines in my book for a while.

Ashley Newman: I’ve known Ashley since our days at university. She is an amazing and talented designer and an amazing mother and wife. Without Ashley’s creative skills, this blog would not look as awesome as it does, and I know I wouldn’t keep up with it. Thank you for being genuine, awesome, brilliant, and somehow still remain cordial to my sorry ass. Now if we can just work on that whole “Gator vs. Hurricanes” thingee….

OK, that’s it for the blog posts. Anyone else I think of is getting a phone call.

i’d like to thank the academy, my family for supporting me through all the challenging times and most importantly the fans… thank you, thank you, thank you…

I’m really honored to be a part of your shout out of thankfulness, especially in such awesome company. I’m pretty thankful to have shared a couple of meals with you this year myself.

If I get to Miami, I’m totally taking you up on that offer. If that doesn’t work, then you’ve gotta give me a call when you’re in SF next. We need to stir up some more trouble again soon.
