Current Jams: Change-Taylor Swift
Morning everyone! Can you believe it?! I have officially been blogging for a WHOLE YEAR!! Chubbygirl's one year anniversary was actually yesterday but I was unfortunately out all day. It's not unfortunate at all really, I was shopping at the outlets all day! Now I know what you're probably thinking, "Em, where are your priorities? You chose to shop all day and neglect your technological platform that brings joy and humor into countless peoples' lives everyday?" Yes. But with good reason.
Things are going to be a-changing for me soon. I'll be juggling a lot more than I usually do and life is going to get pretty hectic and...real. Since I am quickly (and finally) becoming an actual adult and I will have more than two priorities to juggle, that unfortunately means I may not be able to blog as much as I'd like to; I don't plan on stopping by any means, but I know that missed blogging days like yesterday might be a little more frequent. I will do my best to write as often as I can, but at the risk of not always getting the chance to say what I'd like to I will take advantage of the opportunity now on this the day of Chubbygirl's one year anniversary, and also because I believe in the importance of always speaking my mind and saying how I feel before the opportunity slips by.
Wow, I don't even know where to begin. First, I can't believe it's been a year. I can't believe I've had enough things to talk about, I can't believe I actually kept up with it and committed so seriously to something that wasn't a frozen yogurt rewards card, I can't believe the desire to get back to my computer every day and write has not ebbed even an iota, and I really can't believe you guys are still checking in with me! Seriously, I owe everything to you.
|The name of the blog is "chubbygirl". I will obviously|
thank you with food.
messages/facebook posts/texts etc. from you all; it never ceases to put a smile on my face. Putting my voice to words in such a public way has been scary and this online diary I've created has certainly made me feel vulnerable at times, but you guys have made it worth the risk in every single way. Never once have I felt embarrassed, criticized, mocked or like I had no business writing; for that there aren't enough thank you's in the world. Thank you for opening your minds, your time, your lives and your internet browsers for me! Thank you for sharing in this experience with me, inviting me into your lives and for sharing mine. Thank you for your confidence, your kindness, your support, your openness. And mostly, thank you for allowing me to be unabashedly me. Please don't hesitate to continue to reach out, I love hearing from you all and I hope you'll stick with me on this continuing journey!
Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Take Away Message: You guys are AWESOME.
And you are beautiful.
