October seems it's far gone but I wanted to post something about it while I can still call it last month.

This October was the 12th month for my shop since I opened it last year (yes it turned 1!!). I am amazed at the number of people who come in to my shop and say "I read your blog!" and every time I get that I feel so happy (even if they have only looked at it for just a second) :) I have met so many of my blog friends and my dear customers from the web shop from all over the world and I am really happy that now I have this place where people can come visit me and my shop, and of course I'm very grateful  that everyone takes their time to visit. I really appreciate all your wonderful support and encouragements I receive through my blog here too. Arigatou gozaimasu!

There is so much I want to tell you about all the fun and beautiful people I met and things that happened around me last month but I have to leave it till later when I have a bit more time. I've been a real workaholic these days I hope to get through this mountain of  w o r k .  I hope you are all enjoying the change of the seasons.
