Macaron Heaven

When people find out about this site, a few of the same questions usually come up.  When did I begin Why did I start a blog?  How did I build an audience?  How do you curl your hair?  Can you come shopping with me?  Etc.  

To be perfectly honest with you, I don't know why this all began 6 years ago.  On a rainy Sunday evening in April 2008, I registered on blogspot and wrote a few paragraphs and I don't know why any of you are still here, or how I could possibly be this lucky.  There's no big secret or formula.  We're just all together in this weird online world.  Though I shouldn't be, I really should be sleeping right now.

I just had to stop all of the important things I was doing (watching stranger's wedding videos...) to say thanks.  THANK YOU for being here.  For reading, sharing, supporting, smiling, emailing, liking, following, commenting, inspiring, being inspired, laughing, crying, and sticking around.  If I could, I'd share one of those macarons with you as a token of my gratitude.  Especially since I should never be in possession of such a large assortment sweets and I polished off more of those heavenly treats than I'd care to admit to you right now.

So, yeah.  You're kind of the best and I just wanted you to know that.  K thx bye.
