A year sounds like an important timespan. I could have planned a post where I told you about what I've learned here, whom I've met, what places I like and what things I don't like. But honestly, I didn't feel like writing. A year has passed by and I just feel so immensely unaccomplished and disappointed in myself. I don't have a job. I don't have friends of my own. I can't focus. I can't even study.
I know it's totally unfair to say this when I actually have no reason to complain at all! I am happily married to the best man I've ever met and I feel truly loved by him and his family. His friends are awesome and I feel included in their group (there's only one person I just can't stand, but, oh, well ...). And I feel that my dearest friends from Argentina have somehow managed to follow me here, too :). I am happy to have moved and do not regret it.
I was having a very crappy day and then this happened.
The postman rang my bell and handed in a package for me! I wasn't expecting anything. I opened the box and found this beautiful scarf :D.
When I found the card, I just couldn't believe my eyes!
I got teary-eyed with happy tears, of course. If you still haven't met Ashley, let me tell you that she's a great graphic designer and crafter, an original blogger and most importantly an awesome and incredibly generous person. She has done so much for me! My blog would definitely not be the same without her. She was responsible for its 2 adorable layouts and she was the only major blogger that cared to come by and leave a comment when I fist started blogging. Do you remember my previous layout?;)
I loved what Ashley had done and thought I was going to miss it too much to let it go, but then she showed me the new one, the current one, and I fell in love with it immediately.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, ASHLEY! :D For having been there since my early blogging days, for being so generous to me and for having put a huge smile on my face on this very weird day!
And to the rest of you, don't hesitate to meet sweet Ashley on her blog: Under those Neon Lights!
By the way, I think Dimitri loves my new scarf as much as I do, hehe :p.
I can't wait to start wearing it! I love its color and the fabric is perfect for this kind of weather! :D
This package reminded me that this year has not only been about failures and "don'ts". This little blog of mine is actually the only thing that is just mine and it has open the door to so many amazing friendships that I cherish more than you can probably imagine. Every comment you leave means the world to me and I can't thank you enough for caring to even open it and read what I have to say. THANK YOU SO MUCH for being there!!! :D And here's also a very warm welcome to my new "followers"! :D Between inverted commas because I kind of refuse the use of the word follower. I mean, why would anybody be following me, right? I like to see them more as new potential friends ;).
Anyway, too long of a post for not having been planned at all, right? Thank you all for having read this and for letting me be your friend!
