    Honestly, I am flabbergasted. I really didn't expect this. I voted and I really thought that person would win the award. And I still think they were very deserving. Thanks so much. Its hard to think that you are awarded for something that you just love and are passionate about. Its so easy to talk to everyone here. I'm seldom at a loss for words but I am at the moment. What a nice way to start the New Year. I was so over 2012. With all the sadness that we have had in the family in the past 6 months I just wanted it to be gone and looked forward to a new year. I'm very humbled.
    Thank you.
