I've become a huge fan of reading every single one of these blogs, as well as many others I've since started to follow. I literally look forward to coming into my office in the morning, get my usual morning cup of joe, and sitting down to read what new blog entries popped up while I was sleeping.
Reading blogs and talking about fashion is one thing, but what I was never expecting during this whole time was the friendships I've started to gain from all you wonderful girls. On top of that, how generous some of you can be to people that you've never met. Cat, from Anthrosdottir kept me in mind when she found an unsual mark down of the new sapphire Acting Out Skirt and decided to snatch it up for me as an early wedding present. And last night, I found on my door step yet another package from Anthropologie. I didn't open it right away because I assumed it was my Clinton Trench...but after seeing Anthro's shipping email saying it'd arrive on 8/2/2010, I tore open this box. Inside was this:
To my surprise, they were from Carol and Kathryn of In Pursuit for Pretty Things. The mugs stood for of course Cindi and Chris and they were our wedding present. I was so filled with emotion that I was almost in tears. I just can not believe what incredible, strong, beautiful women are out there and how this wonderful little blog community has affected my life. These days we hear about how women are always competitive and jealous of one another. How we can never just support one another without an alterior motive. Although this may be true in some ways, it sure does not apply to this blogging community. I've never seen a group of girls so supportive and honest with one another. I'm so happy I've decided to join you wonderful girls as part of this online family. Thank you for all the joys you've brought to my life and hopefully, I've sprinkled some in yours.
Cat - I love reading about your traveling adventures and work mishaps (though I'm sure you're a super top performer). I continue to look forward to your ever-so-awesome fitting room reviews. Although you and I are different sizes, I value what you have to say and always end up trying on things you've reviewed. I look forward to meeting you some day!
Carol - You're truly a sweetheart, so helpful and thoughtful. A true mom! I think you have probably two of the cutest kids in the world and look forward to seeing them grow up on this blogging community. Thank you so much for thinking of Chris and I during this time! I look forward to your blog entries everyday, so keep them coming!
Kathryn - Chris and I have talked about naming our daughter, if we have a girl, Kathryn, because every Kathryn we've known has been nice and sweet, like yourself. :) Besides, we love the name Kat as a shorter version, and of course all the Kats and Cats we've met are also great girls (as proven by the lovely Cat! Haha). Your friendship with Carol is truly a special one and I oftentimes wished I still lived in LA so you guys can adopt me. :) You're such a wonderful and creative person so thank you for thinking of us!
I'm truly touched, humbled, and grateful! I love ALL you girls who follow me and thank all that make an effort to comment to boost my ego! Haha. What a lovely Thursday so far. I hope everyone is enjoying it as much as I am!
