I have so much to be thankful for this year.
I finally got a new car, adopted the sweetest grey kitten, and I have the best partner-in-crime imaginable. I also have some pretty terrific friends, both in my real-life and through the wires of the internets. This was a great year for The Black Apple, too, which is another thing I have to be grateful for...and a cherry on top of the professional side of things arrived on newstands just a few days ago:
Since I was floored to even be nominated...you can imagine how surprised and genuinely almost confused I was when I learned a little while ago that I had topped the 2008 Venus Hott list for Best Indie Business! Thank you so much for all those votes. It feels really amazing to be in such fine company (#2 is Susie of BoyGirlParty, and #3 is Renegade)! And I couldn't hope to appear in an issue with a cooler cover girl.
I made a PDF of it, in case you want to read the text: HottList.pdf.
I've got a lot of work to do...since we're working something like 12-15 hour days right now, Thanksgiving knocked us behind a little bit. I hope all of you had wonderful holidays...ours was full of good food and kind relatives.
And the pumpkin cheesecake was a smash! I think it's all about the ginger-snap crust.
Happy Friday, applets!
