So...for all four of my regular rabid readers, you may have noticed that I apparently fell off the face of the earth. While this is clearly not entirely true, it feels at least partially true. I am writing this blog post from my husband's childhood home, because I am currently tucked away at my in-laws.

Don't confuse this for some "I hate my in-law" bash. I love them and we get along great, but spending time here is not at all conducive to productivity. Hence, the blog silence.

Seeing as how our visit here will be immediately followed by an equally long visit with my own parents, I don't really foresee much posting in my near future.

So let me take this opportunity to say thanks for sticking around for the past year. I'm excited about all the new things 2013 has in store. I'm planning to continue my weekly 'agency lesson' postings and I'm hoping to showcase more guest posts next year as well.  In writing plans, I intend to take another stab at the query trenches in 2013 and like usual, I'll be sharing all the ugly bits with you guys.

I hope everyone has a great holiday season and a safe new year, no matter where you rest your head. Mine is resting in a room with my husband's high school football jerseys serving as wall art. Cheers!
