thank you! (a touchy-feely, kumbayah, kind of moment)

the maison21 facebook page hit a milestone this morning, with 600 people who (for whatever reason) have decided to like me, and i can't tell you how warm and fuzzy that makes me feel inside. when i started this little blog enterprise i had NO idea whatsoever that anyone outside of maybe my closest friends and family would ever bother to visit here, so i never cease to be amazed that somehow i've amassed several thousand blog subscribers, an almost equal number of twitter followers, and combining those figures with my now 600 FB 'likers", and a tumblr following that grows every day, well, let's just say that i am well and truly humbled. you guys are the BEST.

so i just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to each and every one of you who lets me into your world every time i decide to make a blog post or tweet. i've said it before and i'll say it again, the best part of this whole social media deal is the incredible people i've met and developed relationships with, and just because we've never met in person, doesn't mean that your relationship with me isn't valued, and i am forever grateful to all of you for making me feel so damn good.

i wish i could give each of you a big hug, but since i can't, here's a big smile from ted. sure, i had to trick him into the smile by promising him he'd get a treat, but that doesn't make his smile any less sincere. y'all being here *is* a treat for me,  so imagine me wagging my tail too...

You're a hot mess! Your parents raised you right, and none of this affects your core value system. You rock, Christian, and am happy for your success. XO
