Birthday Beach Break


Hey folks, I’m kicking it at the beach this week and just wanted to let everyone know that I plan on chilling instead of posting for a few days.

Thanks to everyone for the birthday love yesterday, it really meant a lot. The past year was a complete roller coaster. I hit some pretty low lows but, in the end, reached a damn high personal high. Really excited to see what this next year brings.

As a writer, I should probably be able to extend my fullest, most sincere thanks in print form, but alas, I find myself unable. For your support (toward this blog, and toward Earrings), all’s I can offer is my most humble thank you. You all helped me through it, and the fact that so many of you have expressed interest in what I do next is just, well, unspeakably endearing. Definitely the best gift I could’ve asked for.

Keep rockin’ and rollin’ and I’ll catch up with you on Monday!

    1. Ha thanks. Ah, I've never been one to make a fuss about my birthday. No worries about getting older at all, just no need to have all the attention on me, you know?

  5. Happy belated birthday, and enjoy the beach. I didn't know you're interested in other kinds of writing. As you know, based on your blogging and on Earrings, I have a tremendously high opinion of your talents. Can't wait to see where you go in the coming year.
