Can I Ask You To Read Something?

New Year's Resolutions
I appreciate all of the blogs that I "follow" and I truly appreciate all of the wonderful bloggers that "follow" me.

Just so you know, I "follow" some blogs strictly for wardrobe inspiration.  Some ideas work for me and I incorporate them.  Some ideas do not.  Some ensembles are stunning.  Some make me wonder what the blogger was thinking.  All are inspirational in some way. 

I really do look forward to seeing what some of you have worn on a given day.  It is oddly therapeutic.  There is probably some kind of deep seeded issue there that I should have treated, huh?

Some blogs are just fun, even a bit silly.

Then there are blogs that I truly LOVE reading.

I enjoy taking a peek into your personal style as well but the things that you write is what truly captivates me.  SoCal Sophisticate is a great example of that.  

Abby is as sweet as the day is long.  She was one of the first to discover my blog and to actually leave a comment more than once.  Every time I see her blog pop up with a new post I can't wait to read what she has written.  Her style is pretty sharp, too!

This particular post is one that I really hope you will read.

You see lots of different resolutions, lists of goals, plans and even promises for the future at this time of the year if you read things like blogs much at all.  That is all great but so many of us get stuck looking forward and forget about the here and now.  No time like the present, as the saying goes.

Abby has said as much so much more eloquently than I ever could.  I hope you will take a minute and read this particular post and then hang around her little corner of the internet for awhile.  Her blog really is great!

  1. I am seriously tearing up right now!!! I can't tell you how much this means to me! One of my hopes in starting my blog is that I could find like-minded women that I can truly relate with and hopefully share inspiration and experience with as well. You have absolutely been one of those women and I'm so grateful for your support! Thank you, thank, you, thank you for this thoughtful, genuine, and amazingly flattering post. My year has gotten off to a pretty good start already but you have rocketed it into another dimension! You are AWESOME- thank you for for this and for your unique voice and style- it definitely keeps me inspired, and even better- happy!

  16. I totally agree. Some blogs are inspirational while some are silly. But I love stumbling through all blogs because it all inspires in one way or another. Sometimes it does both (make you laugh and inspire).

    Thanks for sharing some great blogs you love.
    Have a great year.
