Hello to all of my readers!
Today marks my 1000 post since I began blogging 4 years ago.
When I began, I had no expectations that anyone would even read my blog,
 let alone follow it.
I have been in awe by your readership
 and kindness through out the years I have been blogging.
What you don't know is just how important this blog became to me 2 years ago
 when a life changing diagnosis was made in my immediate family. 
 I won't go into it,
 because frankly it's not my story to tell.
My story is that as the main care taker and support of this person
 sometimes it's hard to want to get up and get dressed, 
let alone dress like I care. 
 That's the point. 
 It matters a great deal to be able to get up and CARE!!
 It can literally change how you view the day.  

Don't let your circumstances define who you are,
 you define who you are yourself. 
 I am thankful for this blog, my readers and all of my Instagram friends. 
 You all have encouraged me to take care of myself, not fall into a pit of yoga and sweatpants
 and to learn to appreciate the things I do have.

Fashion and Fashion blogging may be looked on as frivolous by some,
 but for me...
it is an expression of creativity, hope, joy and beauty.
  Things we all need in our life, no matter what our situation might be.

So thank you all for reading my blog
 and being a huge support
 even when you didn't even know you were!

An awesome milestone indeed.

I can completely relate to your feelings about being a caregiver, been there...one of the most stressful times I've ever been through. Hang in there and yes, do keep taking care of yourself and looking great. It is SO important.

Hugs, G
