 I would like to take a minute to say thanks to everyone who supported When You Awake over the years. We are coming up on FOUR YEARS as a blog, and without the support of my wonderful assistant editor, Bryan Thomas, all of the contributors, the bloggers who gave their help and advice when I was just starting out, and of course you, the readers, I never could have kept it up this long. From the bottom of my whiskey-drinking, country music-blogging, cowboy boot-wearing heart, thank you.
