Kettle's On. Coffee's Ready. 1 Lump or 2?

Hey! How are you? Come in. Come in. How was your flight? Good. Good. You must be tired. Here, let me take your bags. Don't take your shoes off. Come in. Come in. Here, a big comfy chair for you. Let me slide that ottoman under your feet. Now....cream in your coffee? I took the liberty of preparing some tea as well and there's some fresh bottled water too. Alright. I know an e-zine can't replace a real magazine. Yes, I love the feel of a new issue in my hand. The scent of the ink against my face. The rise of the paper. The glossy texture of the front cover. The sound of the pages as I flip them. I know. I know. But until I can print my very own issue or get asked to participate in another one, here is my 'Summer'. I'm so glad you came to celebrate my blog's first anniversary. Without you, I would be all alone out there. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

I got my private label water done by this company. Have I told you that I also had business cards made to hand out to people when I'm out and about? Ya, they really do work when you are about to get kicked out of somewhere for taking photos. Somehow, those little cards give a blog credibility. And, even more exciting - I'm designing a Liberty Post Press Pass (LPPP or Elle Triple Pea) to wear. Then I will look totally head to toe official. (We are a vital part of the media now. Peas in a pod. Oh yes we are.)

How is your coffee? More? need a nap. Listen. I'll just go check my blog and you relax and close your eyes. I'll wake you up in an hour or so. Gee, I hope our other friends out there can share my e-zine with their readers. Do you think they will? Awesome.

Loved the bottled water. The business card/press pass thing really works. When I started my photoblog 3 years ago I found myself being questioned all over the place. The Chicago Photobloggers group designed a press pass and I use that in "situations".

Congratulations. Many congratulations on a job well done. It's an accomplishment and it shows your commitment to this project.

I like what you have to say. I like that fact that people don't need to agree with you, that you spark discussion. That's a good thing.

Again, congratulations. And, you're a wonderful hostess.

Can you make mine half-cafe?? I'll take 2 sugars and cream.
Congrats on a very inspiring year. It has been a great journey and I look forward to see what you have in store for us over the next year.
Keep up the good work.
