It might be that I should stay away from Picnik, but I mean well...
I'd like to take the time today to come to you not as a teacher or a pastry chef or a blogger, but as a friend. And as a friend, I wish you and your family the very happiest of holidays. Whether you celebrate Christmas in a sacred or secular sense, whether you celebrate Hanukkah or Kwaanza or Winter Solstice or some other holiday, I truly hope your celebration is a very happy one.
One of the amazing things about being on the Internet, as opposed to just walking outside my door and blithering to whoever passes by, is that you all come in many shapes and sizes and colors and religions. And I honor you all, as readers and friends, as sources of knowledge and inspiration. Ultimately, my familiarity--or even my on-boardness--with your celebrations is irrelevant. What is relevant is my sincere wish that your celebrations help bring meaning and joy to your life.
So, whatever and whenever your celebration, I wish you all peace, love and abundance both now and in the new year.
