Having this printed copy in my hands is beyond my wildest dreams...  it's an amazing feeling. 

All those hours of sitting at the computer, the emails back and forth with our contributors, the planning, designing, proofreading, the times when the challenge seemed to be more than I had bargained for....was it worth it?

Yes, totally and unequivocally YES!
