On Sunday, Jackson, Drew and I are flying to St. Louis to spend some time with my family. My parents are flying in from Germany, my sister will be visiting from Austin, and we’ll all be with our extended family for Christmas. This will be only the second time in my life I’ll be with my parents and my grandparents for the holidays — and, of course, the first all of us will be together with Jackson. So, it will be a special time.
I’m going to take a true vacation and not post any new content until January 2nd. I hope you’ll take advantage of the forums to stay connected in my absence, and please check out my favorite posts of 2012 as well as the top 25 most popular posts of 2012 — chances are there’s at least something among those columns that you haven’t yet read.
Thank you all so much for making 2012 such a fun and successful year on DW. This was a year of many lessons for me, both personally and professionally, and I have you to thank for a lot of them. We’ve got some fun things in store in the new year – did I ever mention that Miles has been writing a book?? He has! — and I can’t wait to see where 2013 takes us. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, and Happy New Year to you all, from our family to yours!
And for those of you who are interested, we’ll be having a communal DW Christmas toast at 4:20 Mountain Time, Christmas Day. Raise a glass and send a little love to your fellow DW pals, won’t you?
See you next year!! xox
