Nearly a year ago, the most exciting/frightening/empowering experience came to me in the form of my beautiful daughter. Watching her, and rediscovering me has been a mind-blowing experience. I feel stronger, wiser, and more focused. And believe it or not, I feel 1,000 times more productive. Having a child makes you use your time more wisely, and appreciate the quiet space between you and another person who relies solely on you for comfort, food, and shelter.

Now that my life has become–dare I say it– a bit more stabilized, I feel like I am truly ready to make my way back into the blogosphere. I have to admit, I wasn’t completely gone. I would lurk on some of my favorite sites here and there. And if you follow me on Twitter at all, you undoubtedly saw some commentary here and there.

Well now, in the name of consistency, I am here, fully and earnestly. I’ve missed my fashion friends, I’ve missed musing about clothes and cupcakes, and laughing at celebrity foibles. And now I am pleased to to do it all once more, maybe even better than what I did before.

Lavishly Yours,
