To All My Most Cherished Ep Friends

Hello everyone!

As most of you already know, I personally do not celebrate the holidays (religious reasons for those of you who don't know). However, that having been said, I know that the majority of you do! Therefore, I wanted to take a moment to share a thought and a wish with all of you.

First the thought: Getting to know all of you has truly been a blessing for me, you warm my heart and make me smile everyday. I am so very fond of and appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for the gift you give me of being my friends.

Now the wish: I hope, no matter what you are doing and whom you are doing it with, that this "season" proves to be one filled with warmth, comfort, love, peace and good cheer.

I can't wait to hear all about the things everyone did/does. In that vein, please enjoy this little video I'm including (hopefully it works, haha).

All my love,

Hongruilin Hongruilin 31-35, F 14 Responses Dec 20, 2012

Thank you for your are a blessing! And Yayy!! I love this song!

You are most welcome my dear tiger. And for the record? It's I who feels blessed to have your friendship. You are one of the very best ones, and I hope that we're friends for many many MANY years to come.

Lub ya!

*huggles tightly*

*blushes hardcore...hugs you back*
Yes...many many MANY!!!!


Very sweet of you. You have a nice....ummm....Wednesday too. LOL

*laughing* ... thanks DM. :-)

Thank you for the warm loving wishes. I have spent the day with the family celebrating multiple December birthdays, mostly just a good excuse to get together. Simple foods, good beer and great conversations. I wanted to post a picture of my feelings of holiday greetings but can't so here is a link

EP Link

Aww, it tells me that page is missing a heart. :-(
It sounds like you've had an enjoyable day, food, beer and conversation, what more could one ask for?

That is strange. I pasted that link into a browser window and it works great. Must be an EP thing.

It seems to be working now. Silly EP, you never know when it's going to have some random glitch. :-)

One of my end of year traditions is to look back on the ending year and take stock. As I do this, you, and so many of the amazing friends I have made here will be ranking high on the list of things I'm thankful for. It has been a privilege and a joy to get to know you. You rock.
Thank you for your wishes, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday. Thank you for being the wonderfully generous, kind, fun, lively woman that you are.

*huggles diablesse tightly*

Thank you, for being all of those same things and more.

The end of the year, no matter our faiths or traditions, is a good time for reflection and contemplation. I find that's what I'm current, doing as well and I also find that those special people I've had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with here on Ep rank fairly high on those things for which I am eternally thankful.

I do love your huggles and I've missed them. Thank you

You're more then welcome!

Thank you Hong for your well wishes. It's been certainly a blessing meeting you this year. I had thought it was your birthday that you didn't celebrate, so thanks for clarifying. I hope you will find cheer every day of the year!
*365.25 huggles*

I don't celebrate either of them, but I did get two birthday presents recently. :-)

I also feel equally blessed to have met you. Thank you for your kindness and friendship.

Lub ya!!

*enjoys all those huggles and tries to squeeze out a few more*

Hey, you were supposed to bank them and use one for each day of the year, but hey, it's your call.


I know, but in greedy, and needy today. Lol

Alright, here's 365.25 kisses to go with them.


Yay!!! Thank you.

Happy holidays! Thank you for your kind words! Big huggles to you!! Also great choice in video selections. Zooey is a celebrity crush of mine. :-D

Who doesn't have a crush on her??? Lol.

You are most welcome my friend. :-)

*laughing* my wife doesn't care much for her!

or, who doesn't WR have a crush on ;)

*laughing at both responses*

Why doesn't your wife care for her WR?

She thinks she tries too hard. :-D

Dude I'm not that easy! Well maybe...

I don't think she really tries, I honestly think that's just who she is.

And I'm laughing at your "well maybe ... "

Thank you Hon for your kind wishes. I hope this year will finish on a joyful note and that the new year will bring you many inspired words and a heap of huggles xxx

Merci beaucoup mon ami. I'm still wishing on every eyelash for you. ;-)

Enjoy your holidays!! Much love!!

*hugglea you tightly*

Beautiful Hon ! Lol
The holidays for me are purely about family and friends ( not religion for me )
I hope you have a wonderful fun filled time and a Happy New Year !
We will be at our favourite hut for New Year .. Just the way I like it !
No strangers to kiss ! Lololol


I'd probably want to avoid kissing some strangers as well!! Though there are certain ones .... hehe .. ;-)

We do a great many things with friends and family this time of year as well, everyone has the time off and it's fun to get together.

I hope you have tons of fun at your favourite hut.


thank you :). Wish you happy, uhh. days?, lol. although I dont know if counted as a "cherished ep freind", but regardless. I hope the coming days are good for you anyway :).

You most certainly count as a cherished friend! *hugs* And thank's for the "happy,uhh. days?" wishes, lol.

you welcome, lol. The "happy uhh days" are usally always the best, lol. *hugsback* :).

Thanks, sprightly sister; I am very happy we met in this weird, wonderful world and became friends. I hope you enjoy your time away. Great song selection. I adore Zooey, and she has such a lovely, unique voice. I have a few of the She & Him albums, and her version of Baby, It's Cold Outside from "Elf" is one of my favorite renditions. Have fun, and try not to get into too much rambunctious trouble. My RAV4 can only drive north so fast to bail you out. ;) xox

The feeling regarding our meeting is more than mutual. I am sure I will have much fun away, though I will attempt to temper my "rambunctious fun" without you there to participate and being a little far away to post bail. Lol. Why, also, am I not surprised to find we have a shared affinity for Zooey. :-)

I know. When I scrolled down and saw the video you'd posted, I laughed and rolled my eyes. I, too, love Zooey. ;)

I know you'll be missed, but who knew Zooey could sing?

I did! She is really good - has even had her band at one point. I adore her ... and relate to her a little bit, lol.

Very classy.Very clever and cute....very "Hongruilin" of you,or is it,very "you" of Honngruilin? What I do know is, "you" will be missed.:(

*giggles* Thanks sweetie, and your response was extremely cute too!

HILARIOUS! love this:)

LOL. I'm glad! *hugs*

Very cute video! I'm gonna miss you while you're gone!!! Hope you have a great time though :-)

Thanks sweetie, I'll miss chatting with ya too! The trip should prove to be a lot of fun and long overdue. *hugs*
