Thank You.

I've been reflecting over the past year - and actually farther back than that - and realized that I want to pause to say a few thank you's.
Thank you to all my friends and family who have supported us through our decision to move earlier this year. We couldn't have done it without the physical help you gave us to pack, move, and unpack, not to mention the loving way in which some of you have shared part of your home with us. I've moved so often in my life that you'd think I was collecting zip codes for a hobby, but I feel like I'm finally home in this neighborhood, and am so grateful that I cannot find words - other than to say, "Sweet home, Chicago." Thank you!

Thank you to everyone at the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild for welcoming me to the group. I have enjoyed every single meeting, seeing what you bring for show and tell, learning from all of you, getting inspired to try new quilty things, and finding new friendships. I am especially grateful for getting to know some of you better at the fall retreat (or Quilt Camp 2011), and look forward to getting to know more of you better in the coming months. Seriously - you guys are AWESOME and I am so glad to have found you! Thank you!

Thank you to all of you who visit me here and read my rambling blog. I just noticed that I started blogging about two years ago after my baby had her first birthday. (I totally suck at remembering anniversaries, I'll never get it together enough to have one of those "blogaversary" posts!) It sure doesn't seem like I've been at this for two years, does it? I really appreciate all of you who have taken a moment to leave me a comment or send me a message, from your genuine notes and messages of encouragement to those of you that just drop me a quick "Hello". I also love all of you that I've gotten to know better through blogging, and count you all as true friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
