I hope that by the time this post goes live, those of you who are heading out for Thanksgiving are close to home and have a safe journey on your way to be with friends, family and loved ones. Before we close our laptops and settle in for a few days of downtime, I wanted to take a moment to tell all of you just how thankful I am for your friendship, support and inspiration. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the other side of blogging – what it’s like to read, follow or have conversations on people’s sites. I’m not a frequent blog commenter, but I’m a frequent commenter on other people’s social media feeds and that interaction may seem small, but it means so much to me. I love hearing back from bloggers and other people online and I want you all to know how much all of us here appreciate not just your reading, likes and Pins, but how much we truly appreciate and care about your comments, both here and on our various social feeds. At least a few times a week we email around comments to each other that really moved us or that inspired us to do something differently. Design*Sponge is a living, breathing thing and the real-life beat of our community is the conversation we have with each and every one of you. So as we sit down to give thanks, I wanted to thank you for the time and thought you’ve put into comments here. We listen to and appreciate each one and they mean so much to us and what we do here. Thank you. We’ll see you again on Monday and until then, best wishes for a safe and happy holiday to all of you from all of us at DS. xo, grace
