Calm before the Storm

I have been wayyy behind on blogging lately due to focusing my efforts on getting The Pier Market started…and maybe a lil bit sidetracked for a short time writing larger-ish chunks of the fiction story that has been in my head.  Am I allowed to be proud of myself that I managed to pull this all together with Smash being gone?  I do not know how I did, as she really keeps me on task and I had to really struggle to keep myself on task but…I did it! If the Pier Market was a present its reached the “ready to open” stage and in 4 ..no oops, 5 days I will be excitedly watching everyone come shop there!  So big thank you to the vendors, who are as large a part of this as the venue itself, I am glad to be working with you! The bloggers who will be our trumpeters letting everyone know it has finally opened, I am excited to see what you have to say.

The Pier Market starts on January 20th and features Wolf&I, xX Second Star, Loordes of London, Eyelure, Liv Glam, free bird, L!KE, the Phoenix Collection, DruWear Designs, StoraxTree, Reverie, Grumble and Couture’d Bacon ❤ Cant wait to see you there!

As an aside, I love this store Cashmere and Keane, maybe with enough cajoling we can get him involved in The Pier Market, eh? 😛

Find Your Courage

No one taught me, or showed me where it was….it was just a natural progression in personal growth to take that extra step and stand up for myself.  To be honest, it felt incredibly good to be one move further from being pushed around.  It puts a smile on my face that I have come so far, even though it took a long time to get here.  So I stand today, on top of the world.  I look over the vast city spread out before me and even though I shudder, it is not from fear but merely a reaction to the chill in the air.

I know myself, and my surroundings, and I am incredibly loved.  I have to thank the people who do, because I know it is not easy to love me, but they make it seem so effortless.  My ability to grow, and to take steps is a result of being able to love them all back as fiercely as they love me.  I feel lucky to have found such wonderful people to accept me for all that I am, my darkness along with my light. So naturally I have to give them props for helping me feel on top of the world. D, Baldi, Keri, Amy, Tek, Tim, Phae, Emm….you will always have a place in my heart.
