Happiest of Holidays.

I am going to take a wee break this week and catch up on some the new plans I have up my sleeve for sfgirlbybay. In the meantime, an eternally grateful thank you to each and all of you who were so good to me this year. It was, as they say, the best of times, the worst of times. I lost my dear, sweet dog Coop which was unexpected and heart aching. But then, there were all of you, who commented and sent me your own stories of love, loss and survival. So, thank you so much for that; your role in my healing is nothing more than massive. And then, all the great times, the creative and the cool. I've never been so inspired and excited, and that comes from all the pleasure I'm allowed each day writing this blog, and reading your enthusiastic and interesting responses. Who knew? I sure didn't, but being able to do this has made my life the creative and happy one I sought for so long. So thanks guys for everything. And thanks so much to my fellow bloggers, crafters, artists and sponsors for all the support, kindness and new found friendship you've shared with me. You all are inspiring to me each and every day and I am so lucky to be a part of this ever growing creative community. Happy Christmas, kids! See y'all in the bright new year.

i'm really hoping a fun and uplifting event in 2008 will help balance the loss of cooper this year! I might have commented in the past, but just aa a review, i found your site when searching for things to do in the city and have been following your stories for the past 3yrs or so. You voice (my made up version of your voice) reminds me to grab the digcamera before running out of the house. I'm influenced by your ability to keep such a stimulating site with loads of photos and inspirational direction for those of us new-ish to the city. More plans! More ideas! Keep 'em coming. I'm a huge fan.
