It’s hard to comprehend that three years has past since I started carving out my little space on the internet. The older I get the more sentimental I become, and even small moments in time, like taking a moment to reflect on this past year makes me emotional. If the prior year was the year of being broken down after my divorce, this past year has been the year of recovery. Picking up the pieces hasn’t been easy, I’m still late for 40% of my life, my house stays messy for far longer than it would have ever been acceptable before, I run on gas fumes far too often and my hosting events are few and far between. I was always known as the one that had it all together before. But now, I’m okay with being a little bit messy and late and not having everything pulled together. I’m okay with crying at TV commercials and songs that come on the radio and embracing the unexpected and unknown. I’m okay with throwing my hands up in the air when shit hits the fan because, hey, what else can you do.
And while there’s been so many ups and downs, having this blog as a constant has been the saving grace. I need to thank my fearless, loyal and loving brother-in-law, photographer and tireless blogging buddy. Thank you for your un-abandoning dedication to this blog, and for all of the time you put in to it. There are not enough thank-yous to communicate how much it has meant to me. To my family and dear friends and my new love, I don’t know how I got so lucky to have you all in my life, but thank you for your love and support. I couldn’t do life without you.
Moving forward I have plans, tremendous, lofty and dreamy plans for this blog. The best part of having your very own space in this vast world is that no one can dictate your thoughts or dreams or ambitions, and they can be as big as you can dream them to be. I want to thank you all for coming along on this ride with me the past three years. Your support and readership has kept me going, having someone to share a recipe or an outfit or an entertaining trick has forced light into the darkest of rooms. So let’s celebrate together, to being vulnerable, to personal growth, to new experiences and of course, sharing chic ensembles and delicious recipes along the way.
