It’s been awhile since I’ve written a full blog post article, but I just had a baby in April, I have a crazy three year old and I just got married in October so sufficed to say I’ve been a bit preoccupied. As luck may have it, tonight both kids are asleep (for now) and I am sitting in sweatpants and a Christmas sweater on my couch surfing social media and I decide to randomly check my blog (I’m such a bad blog mama) so I do and I see that I had over 1,500 views last month and I am blown away. I know that that’s probably not a lot for most fashion blogs, in fact if I think about it most of them can probably pull in that many sets of eyes in an hour but for me that seems pretty amazing given that I’ve only had the time to do a few outfit sets a week.
Well tonight I am inspired to write, not just about that but about the diversity of the places that my readers are from; Russia, US, Canada, Italy, China and the list goes on. This is amazing and when I saw this on the little map that Blogger gives you I thought, wow with all the political, war, religious bs that’s going on these days fashion brings people together. Not only fashion, there’s food too and tea and coffee, those are things that people around the world can agree that we love so it warms my heart to think that I help provide a little piece of positivity to this world even if not everyone likes my style choices.
As we approach Christmas, Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice and Kwanza, I always try to be thankful for all the good things in my life, my husband, my girls, my family and friends, my job, my house and my health. This blog is one of the things that I am thankful for and also the readers because without people to read and view my work I would have no purpose to create it. I hope to do more as my children get older, to continue to be inspired and driven by my love for all things fashion and to inspire others to grow and cultivate their love for it as well. The other thing I am mindful of are the people in the world whose lives are in turmoil for reasons beyond their control, who are unable to find solace in something as trivial as fashion. I sincerely wish each and every person who reads this a happy, healthy and safe holiday season, Merry Christmas!
