First of all THANK YOU!
I just wanted to take a minute and say thank you to all of you for making 2013 the best year ever for me here at Coffee with an Architect (you can imagine me typing this from my secluded evil liar headquarters perched over a majestic cliff edge, at least that’s how I like to imagine it while I type these things. It tends to help). 2013 was a crazy year for me. I think I finally started to get my footing with my professional life, and business started picking up. So much so, that I’ve had the best year of my career so far. Not all that surprisingly, as I got busier and busier at work, my ability or willingness to write for the blog has waned, and I’ve slowed down on the postings this year. I even considered stopping altogether at one point. But, when I thought of stopping, I was reminded of the hundreds of people who’ve reached out to me over the years to let me know that they appreciate my particular form of angst-ridden representations of my love for the profession of Architecture. So, as long as you all will continue to tolerate me, I’ll stick around. In fact, I plan to make 2014 the best year ever for Coffee with an Architect.
Second of all YOU ARE ALL AWESOME!
One of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done here at the blog has been to help raise some money for a good cause. Last year we raised about $1100 for Architecture for Humanity. This year, we’ve done even better. As of 12/28/13 we’ve raised just under $1700! I’ll be sending the check to Architecture for Humanity on Monday. So, if you’re one of those “wait til the last minute to donate” kind of people. This would be that “last minute”!! If you want to add your contribution to the Coffee with an Architect 2013 Fundraiser please do! All contributions to the Paypal account and all profits from purchases from my shop made by Monday 12/30/13 at noon will be added to the total. Please consider taking a moment to contribute. It really has been an incredible thing we’ve done here at Coffee with an Architect.
So, how much should I make the check out for?
And lastly, I really love you guys.
Here’s to an awesome 2014
