Look, I’ve been going back and forth about this year. Apart of me wants to “Stella Got Her Groove Back”-style set fire to it and watch it burn to hell in a saucy outfit. Another part of me is like, “well, aww it’s kind of cute. Can’t we keep it just a little longer?”
2015 definitely tested me in more ways than one that made me question my sanity at some points … as well as my strength. But instead of slapping a big red stamp on the year deeming it either, “burn in hell. bitch” or “meh, I guess it was okay” … I’m just going to tip my cap to it and walk away feeling rather … lucky.
I won’t bore you with all the sapp-tastic details. I just want to share with you all that 365 days is an incredible amount of time. And good things will happen, and really fucked up things will happen, which makes it so hard to deem those 365 days good or bad. But with the good and the bad comes strength. Probably one of the most important lessons I’ve learned this year.
But most importantly, the sunshine of my life, per usual, is this blog. It is my everything. I would buy it something from Kay Jewelers if it wouldn’t be weird, THAT is how much I adore it. But what is even sweeter is you, the person reading this nonsense. Yeah, you. The person who makes me keep on keepin’ on. I just … yeah I’m crying. Awesome. Stupid sappy thoughts.
I’m beyond blessed to do what I love every single day of my life. And for that, I would like you to raise a glass of something (hopefully champagne, I mean it’s never too early to start) with me (yes, I’ve already started “Judgey McJudgerson”) and toast to a transformative 2015 and a happy, healthy, and always interesting 2016.
Now I would like to reflect on my top 5 favorite blog posts of 2015 (see what I did there, that is why they pay me the big bucks). Which was REALLY hard, by the way … so I did one more for good luck. Click the image below to read on.
Dinner en Blah: because who likes wearing all white whilst lugging around basically a full dining room set en blanc to an unknown destination. I mean come now …
Tough Love On Interning: because STOP SUEING YOUR EMPLOYERS, KIDS. YOU’RE MAKING THE OLDER MILLENNIALS (like yours truly) LOOK STUPID. STOP IT. “Wahhh I’m not getting paid and Michelle Tanner is making me work insane hours.” How else are you going to leave your mark, fools. Suck it up!
I Survived Fly Wheel Week One: (spoiler alert) remember the time I quit after week 2 because … yeah … I suck
People Still Can’t Handle Menstruation: but I definitely want to hear about a mans erectile dysfunction problems every 5 seconds on TV. A fun little splash from the hose from a creepy older gent to his wife in the garden (who is pretending to be 55 but is really like 40) and it’s ON.
A Tour Of My Boudoir: because I’m ridiculously proud of how I transformed my space and my cat kind of gave the tour so it is EXTRA adorable
Experiencing Miss Philadelphia 2015: because I got a behind the scenes look at a real life beauty pageant AND got to secretly try on the crown … which kind of made my life
