As I sit here to open my blog I am thinking ‘What does one write for their inaugural post when starting a blog?’ I realize that a blog is anything the blogger wishes to share with the reader. No spectacular grand gesture is required; just get to the business of creating it. So to start perhaps I will just offer up what I wish to share in my blog. I wish to share my love of fashion and a bit of my joy for all that is good in life mixed in with a dash of the reality that life sends our way. The only way we can recognize the good things in life is to have some experience of what defines the bad. Knowing this, we learn to accept the bad so that we may be able to recognize, appreciate, and enjoy the good we may be fortunate to experience. Yes, you have guessed it, I am an optimist. I admit it. I support the up side of life and believe in the basic goodness of people. Oh yes, I acknowledge there is a bad side of life and people, but I choose to look for, and expect, the good. I have learned that you most often find the thing you seek, so I choose to seek the warm fuzzy bunny, sunshine, and white fluffy cloud side of life. So here I am, hoping to share my take on style and fashion and placing my thoughts out there for the world to see. I hope I can uplift you and enrich your day when you are gracious enough to pay me a visit on these pages. Warmest regards, EJ.
