Coffee-mate and BlogHer have teamed up together to create a shared story program about how we bloggers add flavor to our lives, and so I've been giving this a lot of thought.
How do I add flavor to my life?
The answer I keep coming back to is this one: The people in my life add more flavor than anything else I can possibly think of.
I feel grateful every single day to have the friends that I do. I have friends from all different times in my life, from my years in New York, my time in Los Angeles, from college in Vermont and from travel writing trips I've gone on. I've been keeping up with some of them since elementary school and some I met just last month. I have friends I met in yoga class, friends from high school, friends from restaurants I've worked in and friends I met through other friends.
I have friends who are artists and friends who are teachers, friends who writers and friends who are moms. I have friends in politics and friends in foreign countries, friends who write business proposals and others who write blogs. I have friends who are psychotherapists and friends who travel for a living. I have friends who manage real estate and friends who are aerial performers. I have friends who are yoga instructors and friends who run nonprofits, friends who are nurses and friends who have no idea what they want to do with their lives.
And each of them add something new to my life. They bring all kinds of experiences and places and thoughts and ideas to our friendship. They influence me, inspire me, edit me, credit me. They make me who I am.
They bring -- yes, here it comes -- FLAVOR to my life, like nothing else does.

Congratulations to Johanna of Virginia for winning the $100 Visa Gift Card! She had this to say about how she adds flavor to her life:
I think my boys have added flavor to my life. There has not been one dull moment I can think of.... they are always up to something, and that makes my life interesting and fun (abeit also a little stressed)!
