Well, tonight we are ending 2013. I feel like it just started! This year has been intense, crazy, and a little insane. It’s been a really good year…and a really bad one too.

Personally, I’m glad it’s over. 2013 was tainted with pain and loss, and I hope that 2014 can bring a fresh and happy new start.

Business-wise, 2013 totally rocked. This blog of mine became, what feels like, a living, breathing thing. And it’s all thanks to you, my readers. Without you I wouldn’t have hit numbers I never thought I would. I wouldn’t have attained goals I never thought I could reach. So thank you, thank you for your continued support of Crazy for Crust!

2014 is going to be a good year: for business and for personal. I’m excited for what’s to come over the next 12 months and I’m super excited to take you along for the ride.

Thank you again for everything you’ve done, all the reading and comments, the pins, the tweets, the Facebook likes and shares, the emails. I appreciate each and every one more than you know.

Be safe tonight. Kiss your loved ones at midnight (or, if you’re me…9pm when the ball drops on the east coast) and ring in the New Year in a good way. Happy New Year!

See you next year!
