I've added a new blog to my meager blogroll over there on the right, The Real Charlie. The Real Charlie is one of my real closest friends, husband to Abby of While She Naps and father to two sweet little girls whom you can read about on both of their blogs.
Charlie and Abby mean more to me than I can say. They frequently include me and David in their family celebrations - such a great honor! - and our Jewish holidays and festivals wouldn't be the same without them. We tell "ain't she cute" stories about their toddler as though she were our own niece, and I love her as though she were too.
Thinking about them has warmed me on this rainy morning, and made me feel that it's been too long since I've talked to them, so I'm going to go remedy that. (Of course, since they alone probably comprise a majority of GOAT readership, I suppose they already know I'm thinking of them today!)
