I want to thank you. I want to take the time today to let you know how special this blog is to me because of you...
This ongoing conversation between you and I has brought me so much joy. You have inspired me with your businesses and ideas, amazed me with your creativity and talents, warmed me with your friendship and kindness, and touched me with your comments and emails.
Someone recently said it best to me, "The real meat of a post is in the comments." I couldn't agree more. What you generously give here through your readership and thoughts is far greater than what I could ever create alone. I try my very best to visit every single person who leaves a comment as a way to say 'thank you' for taking the time. This is the only way I can 'meet' you, so please leave your thoughts because I sure want to meet you :)
What every blogger I've ever talked to says the best part about blogging is is the friendships they've made because of it. In 2009 I've had the gift of your support and the pleasure of building friendships with so many of you! I've even met some of you in person! I had brunch with Sam, Jenn, and Abby in Washington D.C. and dinner with Cassandra, Erin, and Sarah in Seattle. I hope 2010 brings many more opportunities like these!
A fresh start, a clean slate, an open book ready to be written! I'm so excited to see what 2010 has in store for us all! I look forward to being continuously inspired by you and to supporting our design blogger community into the new year!!! xoxo
