I sit here in disbelief. A few years ago, this blog began as a dream of mine: a place where women could garner some inspiration via fashion, lifestyle, art, intelligence, literature, advice, etc. Who would have thought that I, in turn, would be the one who ended up being so inspired?
And who was it that inspired me? You.
Each of you. All of you. Every piece of interaction that you have thrown my way (the comments, messages, emails, pins, likes, follows, stories) has slowly formed a huge pile of inspiration in my heart. Cheesy? Definitely. True? Absolutely.
Today, Blonder Ambitions has hit 3 million page views. If you had told me this would have happened when I first began, I would have laughed it off and thanked you for your encouragement. Ironically, I did laugh today. More like a laugh-cry. Countless hours spent designing, photographing, writing, creating… all with the hopes that it would have a positive impact on someone… somewhere. All of those countless hours have been worth it. Every minute. Every second. Worth it.
Thank you to all of those someone’s out there in all of those somewhere’s who have had a positive impact on me.
Thank you for your continued support. As always, I’m just an email away – firstname.lastname@example.org
Love, love, love to each and every one of you.
And, cheers. This one’s for you.
Wondering about the picture above? I took it a couple of hours ago. While I was celebrating. With some of my favorite things (champagne, gluten-free cupcakes, french fries, faux fur, and haphazardly propped tiaras… because, in my humble opinion, there is no other way to properly wear a tiara).
