So, I was already having an above-average Monday today (I ate tacos and a slushie for lunch with Camille, sold my first item from my vintage etsy shop, and my parents' cat let me hold her for a picture), and then I got a little email from BlogHer that was icing on the cake...
I've won a major award!
(Name that movie reference.) (Now I want a fishnet leg lamp....)
Stop Waiting for Your Life to Start & Start Living It Now
Attending the conference later this month in Chicago for a shmancy reception and to get my picture taken on stage isn't in the cards this year (and by cards I mean bank account because of that whole moving to California thing), but I'm so there in spirit! (And will photoshop myself into their photos later, naturally.)
Next time I win an award I'll try and enter other contests for airfare, hotel and registration fees at the same time so I can afford the festivities! As it is, maybe I'll just put on fancy clothes that night at home, pour myself a glass of sober-girl bubbly and toast to the walls and houseplants. (I kill all houseplants, who am I kidding?)
Moments like this are good reminders that I'm doing this whole writing thing for a reason. Thanks for all the support along the way, blogging friends!
