I am taking pics right now, this is the first:
My name. On. The. Edge. Of. Fabric.
I am such a geek that I couldn't wait to show you!
And I am such a geek that I keep getting all weepy with relief, disbelief, joy.
I kept saying that I wouldn't believe it until I had the actual fabric in my hands...
Well, I was wrong because I still don't believe it!
I feel like I should be acting nonchalant and like this was all inevitable.
But the truth is that I am still surprised that I made it out of my teens alive, and I am still surprised that ...oh, I don't even know. Just surprised by all of it. Surprised that I am ok, I guess. This is all feels like such a dream, a fantasy.
For most of my life, I didn't believe that I could be happy or healthy or successful. I have been working so hard for so long, just to keep my head above water, emotionally speaking. I'd like to say that I never gave up, but I gave up all the time. I guess I just eventually picked myself up off the floor, whether it took weeks (if I was lucky) or months (most of the time) or years (sometimes). What can I say, I was always a slow getter-back-upper.
But I'm getting faster. (mmm, smile)
I feel like I should ---I guess from a marketing perspective--- just act like this is all perfectly normal and act all professional and shit. And not swear. And I should say "oh my gosh" instead of "oh my god."
Well, maybe someday.
For today I am a girl who swears and says ohmygod.
For today I am a girl who is overcome with relief and a deep sense of okayness that is pretty new.
And I am totally digging it.
Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm.
It is medicine for my heart.
More pictures to come.
xo and love, for real.
