AAAAAahhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHH..... somehow I missed my own blog birthday! It was 367 days ago that on a particularly distracting night, I couldn't get a story idea out of my brain. So I blurt it all out in the form of a Microsoft Word document freeing myself from whatever the opposite of writer's block is; writer's flow I suppose. And then, and I really don't remember where I got the idea from, I published it to blogger. I knew NOTHING about blogging WHATSOEVER and I didn't even plan on sharing it with anyone. I don't think I had ever even viewed a blog before save for my friends' on myspace.

Well, I did share it with two people, my sister and her boyfriend. You know like hey guys I respect you, what do you think about this? Next thing I know it's blasted all over myspace and facebook. Thanks guys.

No seriously, thank you. Ashford Gets Dressed was born a year ago, with no vision or destination in mind. In fact, I pretty much ignored it for 6+ months, letting the weedy blogosphere swallow it whole. I had no idea what I was supposed to do with this thing, what it was for, or if I liked it. Figuring it out has been a struggle and a labor of love (seriously, these things take up wayyyy more time than you would think). I'm still working on it. Bear with me. One day this half-blown dandelion will be a field of poppies glowing brilliantly in the sun.

I want to thank you all for your support, comments (ugly and beautiful) and suggestions. Although I get embarrassed when people (usually drunk ones) yell "HEYYYY I READ YOUR BLOGGGG" in my ear, it truly makes my heart all warm and gooey. Not only that, having an audience pushes me to learn more, do more, grow more. I am a more complete person.

From my whole heart, I would like to thank each and every one of you, near and far, for being a part of my virtual and real life. To another year!
