Today – 8/8/09 – is Ellison’s 11 year sober-versary. And early next week is her one-year smoke-free-versary. We’re in Pittsburgh with friends, visiting Kennywood, eating at Red Robin (look out, Guacamole Bacon Burger!), and generally having some fun. It’s been a tough year of not smoking, and I’m incredibly proud of her every day. So give her a shout out, either here or if you know her in real life.
