Blog Birthday

She dreamed of a world of oh so pretty things
Pink gilded with gold,
All sparkly and bright.
Paired with stories and style
books music art parties food fashion decor
love laughter more.
And then she made it happen.
And best of all,
You came to read it.

Style Maniac turned three this month and I thank each and every one of you for making that possible. Your visits, comments, conversation bring the stories told here to life, and as a writer there is nothing better. Merci, mes amis, for sharing this journey ... there are many more delicious things to come.
