Happy New Year, and thanks for the present!

2011 is winding to a close. For some of my readers it has already turned to 2012.

Can I say I'll miss 2011? For the most part, no. It's been a year personally of some spectacular ups and downs. I've never experienced one like it and hope to never again.

One bright spot? You.

I am almost at the one year mark for my blog. I started January 4, 2011. On December 30 at about Noon AST you all gave me a wonderful gift. My individual page views reached 50,000. For a blog that started at zero one year ago that's pretty impressive, or at least it is to me.

And it's all because of you, my dear readers.

I want to thank you for visiting me over the last 12 months. It's truly been a pleasure writing, building, cooking, gardening and pontificating – and knowing that you are interested in what I have to say. It's been an outlet of creativity that I didn't know would be so rewarding.

So I wish you all the very best for 2012. May it bring us all happiness, peace and joy without bounds.

2012 for me? There's a few big personal projects coming up, but I'll keep doing what I'm doing, if you promise to keep coming back. Look for more original recipes, gardening tips and, yes, liqueurs in the year ahead.

By the way, I gave almost all of mine as gifts this last Christmas and received rave reviews.

So, once again, thank you for making what I do so rewarding. God bless.
