Merry belated Christmas to all my internet friends out there! No matter what you’re celebrating (or not celebrating), I hope you enjoyed a relaxing, joyous weekend with people you love.
The holidays and the end of the year are always a time of gratitude and reflection on the year past. So much happened in the last year, both personally and on this blog. I’m so grateful for so much positive growth and change.
Thank you for helping each other and truly creating a community here. I love seeing the conversations that happen in the comments and the way people are always so willing to jump in and help others with advice and ideas. Even the conversations that veer “off-topic” make me happy to see, because I love that people are engaged and interested.
Thank you for your support and positivity toward me, too. As you can probably imagine, it can be scary to put a little bit of yourself out into the world. Even though I’ve been doing this for a while now, there are still times it’s a little terrifying to hit “publish,” and times I spend all day feeling nervous about whether people will like what I created. I appreciate every positive word and little bit of encouragement.
Thank you for sharing in my obscure little activewear hobby. I love having people who appreciate the details and get a little nerdy about spandex with me.
Thank you all for sharing a little bit of your days in my little corner of the internet. I often feel isolated and lonely in my tiny town, and I cherish every connection and common ground I’ve found here. I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know a few of you, and so glad even for those I don’t know.
So, to each and every one of you: merry everything and a happy always!
