happy 2013!

Just wanted to log in to say hello to all the lovely people and wish you a very happy new year. I realize I've left this place to a state of hiatus but am hoping to come back more frequently this year. after all, 2013 marks the tenth year (!!) since i first got into the blogging thing (first in japanese... this place was born in 2004).  it's incredible to find myself still here doing this, but it's been wonderful to have come to know so many great blogs (food and otherwise) and met some of you, even, who are not only talented bloggers but plain wonderful people. so thanks for sticking around and here's to a great year for all of us around! -cxx
