As the countdown begins, and this year draws to a close:
Thankyou to everyone who passed through here, who stopped and read, or who just glanced at photographs; to those who left comments, told their own stories, and who confided their own experiences in private with me; to those who found something they liked and stayed, to those who have read for years, and those who have found this for the first time; to those who have played a special, important, and personal role in the blog, and my life through this year; to those who I have now the pleasure of calling friends, those I have met face to face for the first time, and those who have been a constant source of laughter and hope when I've seen you; for those who have shared your blogs with me, and who I visit as often as I can; to those who have bought from 6.5st, and those who may buy in the future; to those who have been a source of inspiration - who have pushed me forward and shown me new ways to do things; to those near enough to be around the corner from me, and those in far reaches of the world - the closeness this community has is such a joy.
Have a wonderful new year, and thankyou for being a part of my year. 2008 is going to be wonderful.
I just know it!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have an uncluttered house which is [nearly] sparkling, fireworks to attend, some sand to play with, and a beach to lie on.
