Welcome (almost) 2009!

Asbury Park boardwalk, July 4, 2008

Well, it's been a boom-boom year. A humongous thank you to everyone who came by to visit me at my online home! I remember thinking having a blog would make me a dork (my friend assured me no; just a nerd, and nerds are cool), but instead it made me connected to a whole world of people, many of whom I now call friends. Amazing these internets, huh?

My biggest wishes for a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year to you. And thank you for making my world a little brighter. (And my days a little longer. Can't...stop...reading...blogs. )

Oh boy! I hope I'm the first (or at least the second person) to post and tell you what an absolute pleasure it's been to get to know you this year, Laura! And I want to be the first to wish you, Mr. Shorehouse, Shorehouse Mom, and Shorehouse Dog a wonderful, blessed, and prosperous 2009.

Happy New Year, my sweet friend and all my love!

XO,

Happy New Year!
I know what you mean in this post. I sort of accidentally ventured into blogging...all these ladies with similar interests as mine and reading comments and leaving comments and just getting lost out there. It was amazing that it didn't take long before I felt such wonderful friendships taking place.
This IS such a wonderful place and its hard to imagine we haven't met yet we know so much about each other, and feel so much for each other...I'm so happy to have met you too..

I hope your New Years eve was wonderful and the same for this new day of 2009.
