HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
I've been missing in action for the past few weeks, and I appreciate all of your sweet and supportive e-mails inquiring about my whereabouts.
This past month, my job has been extraordinarily stressful and demanding due to the crappy economy, which left me exhausted (physically and mentally) and leaving me little to no time for any personal pursuits (baking, blogging or otherwise). Please don't take my comments the wrong way, as I know that many people are struggling, and I'm very grateful to have a job and work in a very supportive environment.
Still, this was the first time in many years that I didn't have time to bake holiday sweets and share with my family and friends, which made me really sad. :( To top that, I had to say "uncle" and flake on all of my blogging baking commitments this past month ... total bummer!
Enough of my whining and re-hashing the past! 2008 wasn't all bad, as this past year marked my entry into the blogging world. Originally, I didn't expect much, but it's really developed into a really fun and fulfilling hobby. It's been a real treat to see truly talented bloggers in action and to get better acquainted with all of you!
I wish all of you a wonderful new year and look forward to a fantastic 2009!!
