The next time you hear from me it will be 2010!  Where did the time go?  The past few months have been the both the longest and the shortest of my life – lots of changes, challenges, and obligations.  I’ll detail all of those later, but for now I wanted to come up for air  (finalizing a major project, i.e. my dissertation!) and wish all of my blog readers, shop supporters, cyberfriends, and all those who happen upon this post a very happy holiday season.  Enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy some more!
