It’s things like this…

Every now and then, you get such a nice note about your blog, that it’s incredibly inspiring and it just keeps you going. (I’m not going to say I’m “humbled” because I’m not–I’m psyched)  It also makes you think about why you keep up a blog–I mean, do I even know who reads this?  I’m not even sure my parents read it anymore but I still do it.  I’m not one of those bloggers that goes to blog conferences, get tons of free swag, has sponsors etc, but I started blogging back before it was cool, and I’m still at it.  And I still love it.


Anyway, I got the nicest note yesterday from a girl I went to prep school with–I don’t think I’ve spoken to her in years but we are Facebook friends and we mutually like things every now and then on Facebook. Anyway here it is:


I am feeling compelled to let you know that I am in love with your blog. Having recently bought a fixer-upper of a house (and spent the 3 years before that looking for one), I’ve been reading a LOT of design blogs. Yours is really fantastic and among my very favorites. It’s very nicely done and it makes me so happy to know it’s you behind it. I especially love your injections of personal projects and opinions on trends (I will think of you while I’m painting my study walls red and perhaps think of you even more if I end up hating it). Just wanted to send some love and encouragement to keep up the good work.  


I mean…this completely made my day!  So, thanks everyone who reads this and likes it.  Its awesome to blog and awesome to hear stuff like this every now and then.  Have a lovely Fall Saturday!
