For anyone who doesn’t know me, I am a big fan of the month of December. Not just because it’s my birthday month, but because I love the holidays. I’m not even Christian and I love the Christmas season. Not the rampant commercialism – I make all my gifts (more on that later, promise!) but the idea that there’s an entire month dedicated to warm fuzzy feelings when it’s darkest and grossest out is my favorite thing ever. I never manage to remember people’s birthdays, but once a year I make a list of people to send cards and presents to and goddammit, I commit.
So consider this my virtual card to everyone (because I’m sure I missed some people) – thank you. I’ve had a crazy year of super-high ups and super-low downs. And every click on my blog, every reader, every commenter, and every subscriber has meant the world to me.
So happiest of happy holiday seasons to everyone reading this. May your celebrations not be too heinously stressful and full of relatives you hate, may you stuff yourself with all your favorite cookies, and may you hug all the people you love extra-tight and let them know you love them. And for me, some of those people are you guys. I love you. And I can’t wait for us to blog the crap out of 2013 together.
