We are about to embark on two weeks of madcap craziness and festivities around here, so I'm cutting out a little early. But before I do, I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season. I hope you find time to squeeze the people you love and to be squeezed lovingly in return. Thank you, truly, for your visits and words of encouragement. You've made me smile and giggle and dream. Here's to a better and brighter 2012.
