Last year this time, I was on pens and needles (get it?)…I wasn’t sure where clicking “publish” on SCDD’s first post would lead, but what a fabulous journey it has been. From the bottom of my stiletto-loving heart, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for reading, inspiring, sharing and supporting Same Chic Different Day. The friendships I’ve made and experiences I’ve had during this first year are beyond my wildest dreams or expectations (considering I thought only my mother and sister-in-law would be reading this!). Doing what you love may seem like a cliché or even impossible, but amazing things happen when you step out on faith (in the baddest ensemble you own, of course!).
There are seriously way too many people to thank by name, but I want to thank my family and friends (old and new) for their encouragement, expertise and for talking me off the ledge (trying to make it as a writer is not always as glamorous as I might make it seem). Thank you to EVERYONE who participated in some way with the posts, and to the students in the yearbook class at Hayden High School, who made me feel like a Pulitzer Prize winner.
This year concludes with SCDD finding itself a finalist for one of Birmingham’s Best blogs. Where will the next year take us? Stay tuned, darlings…the best is yet to come! (See Mother and Daddy? That liberal arts education is working out!)
P.S. Of course I’m wearing sequins today.
