You guys are wonderful, really. Thank you so much for all the reassuring comments. It had just been long enough that I wondered if something was actually broken. I try not to be too needy, the Internet is already narcissistic enough as it is, but every so often I guess I still need that feedback.
I want to say also how wonderful both you and twitter has been to me over the past couple of years or so. Mock Twitter all you will, but the instant feedback, the diverse opinions and networking there has been invaluable. Yesterday I asked about more eco friendly bath product that I could find in the convenience of my local Target. Sure, I'd seen some things, but why experiment when I know someone out there has a great recommendation. I was sent by many to try out the Burt Bees selection and was given several other options available in the health food/vitamin store should I need to further experiment. Heck Twitter is the reason that I carry Baggu reusable bags in my bag at all times. It's the reason I now have a pair of Simple sneakers, which by the way are ridiculously cute and comfortable. I've learned, I've shopped and I've grown with exposure to you and twitter and etsy. Sadly most of these connections exist only online as they are physically way too far away. Lest you like I am completely lonely, I do have a wonderful family, beautiful children and a supportive husband. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate my virtual world.
As a bit of an impromptu gift, please enjoy a $5 credit on any purchase at my etsy shop though the weekend. If you are interested just mention the blog and the credit at checkout. I will refund through paypal. I wish I could offer a less retail based gift, but it's all I've really got except, Thank You!
