I wanted to take a moment this afternoon to say thank you. I was reading through tweets this morning and saw one from Jenna that asked, “Are you doing something that matters?” I immediately thought of this blog. Blogging is a weird thing. Why do we do it? Why do I do it? Sometimes it feels too silly or trite, or sometimes not silly or trite enough.
I always said that when blogging stopped being fun, I’d stop blogging. The reason it’s still fun and the reason I’m still excited to post each day is because of you. You sent me questions about shoes and gave me advice about babies and I am so grateful for all of it. Thank you for the support, the tips and the encouragement. Thank you for sticking along for the ride and thank you for your kind words!
When I considered moving my blog to Wordpress recently, the only thing that held me back was the community of people I had met through Tumblr.
I know now it was the right decision to stay. The outpouring of love, support and concern from you has been palpable and more moving than I can possibly express. Your emails and notes to me will be forever remembered as proof that love and friendship can pull someone out of the darkest of moments.
Today, the sun is shining. I gave Milo a biscuit and walked him down the sidewalk, watching the single track of little pawprints he left behind in the snow. And I didn’t cry. I will again, but I’m not right now.
