I don't know about you, but I'm very excited to welcome a new year. 2010 was wonderful in so many ways, but 2011 will be even better. With a move to a beautiful new city and being in a very happy place with my life, I can just feel it.
I wanted to take this time to thank each and every one of you. As you may have guessed, launching Rue has been the defining event of my 2010. It's brought me to a place of great challenge, passion, gratitude, creativity, and growth, which is more than I could have asked for when the little seed of an idea popped into my mind last April. And it all started right here, with this blog, and with you.
What I love about blogging is that it levels the playing field. It gives us all an opportunity to be part of the conversation. To build friendships with other like-minded individuals near and far. To belong to a community that is kind, inspiring, and supportive.
So today, I thank you for being that for me. For coming along the journey with me. For your kind comments, encouraging words, creative ideas, and most of all, your support of my personal endeavors. There aren't enough words to describe how much your support for Rue this year has meant to me. At the least, I hope that my gratitude is felt and that my blog and the magazine will always be a place you can come to for a little inspiration.
I wish you each a very happy new year! May 2011 be better than the last. May it be filled with dreams, happiness, love, and continued self-discovery!
