So, I'm the weepy type and I don't want to sit at my laptop and cry, so I'll keep it short. 2008 was an amazing year for me professionally and personally. I've lived a life thus far of determination and dreams knowing that anything is possible if we work for it. Thing is, my dreams often involve teamwork and this year -- what a team. I'm talking about you. I'm talking about people I work with. I'm talking about my close friends. There is no way I can get to my dream without all the above, and surely no way I can stay in it without the team. So, if you watched just once, or for 5 minutes. If you watched and spread the word. If you watched and then cooked. I thank you so much. Can you believe there are people that work on the show I haven't even met yet? Sales staff, promotions and more within the network, here in NYC and down south at the broadcast facility ... I thank them too. I've met so many great people this year, some I hope to know for a long time. Bloggers, producers, viewers, foodies ... my life is fuller because of it and I just really wanted to say thank you. Dreams come true, hard work pays off and when it does, it feels good to turn around and see people there for you. Thank you so much for being a part of my dream and I wish only success for you and yours in 2009.
