An amazing start of 2013

The first day of 2013 started with nice sunny weather, a good ski trip, a cold bear and a pleasant surprise in my inbox:

Congratulations 2013 Microsoft MVP!
Dear Mattias Skold,

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2013 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Visual Studio ALM technical communities during the past year.

I’m both honored and proud for the recognition, but also for being a part of this friendly and open ALM community, the congratulations I got from friends, fellow ALM Rangers, MVP's and other community members is an award in itself. 2013 couldn’t have started better!!!
