"I enjoy checking out the Style Maniac blog--'live laugh learn listen read decorate dress entertain ... with style.' Addictive!"

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.

Wow... that's 30 in blog years!

You keep me hopeful. May this be the year you dream about.

Style Maniac said...

Awww, Mom, you are so sweet! My own 3rd birthday was a long long long time ago, but I guess some things never change!

Style Maniac said...

Thank you Maria, so very much.

Barb -- is that how it works?! In that case, as my uncle would say, "29 and holding." And may your wish for me come true -- and may it come true for you, too.

Is there chocolate cake? Birthdays deserve chocolate cake.


Style Maniac said...

The wonderful thing about a virtual birthday party is that the cake can be whatever flavor you like!

Thank you for stopping by and for the kind wishes Shelton and Sara.
