YLF turns eighteen today. Eighteen years since the first blog post. That’s a long time!

You are what makes YLF a special social community. Thank you for your insightful, compassionate, intelligent, thoughtful and often amusing contributions, from which I learn, reflect, and grow as a person. Special shoutout to Fabbers who have supported YLF for more than a decade. I am humbled by your loyalty and engagement. 

A big thank you to Inge, who has been part of the YLF team for fourteen years, and a Fabber for sixteen. Inge is an absolute sweetheart, and one of the most thoughtful, patient, polite, and kind people I know. She is our very dear friend, a pleasure to work with, and a wonderful human being. We chat many times a day, enjoy a similar aesthetic, love doggies, and laugh a lot together too. I feel blessed to have Inge in my life.

And last but not least, a snuggly and soothing thank you to Yorkies Sam and Jo, who are always close-by as I type on my laptop or desktop. Either nestled together, or stuck to either of me. Their incredible companionship is indispensable, and not to be underestimated. Our first Yorkies, Jasmine and Rosie, who were YLF’s first co-CEOs, fulfilled the same therapeutic role, and are always in hearts.

We at YLF thank you again for stopping by, chiming in, and gracing us with your intelligent and respectful presence. Cheers to another year!
