Let me give you some insight into how long I've been blogging: my dear friend Holly, who now works for d.RA (the line this shirt is from), started reading my blog when she was still in high school and I was a freshman in college. I'd love to lie and tell you that I'm twenty-one, and that was a whole four years ago, but the truth is that I'm twenty-seven! Almost ten years ago, she and her twin sister were buying the clothing I made out of my off-campus, student housing in Florida - they were even the first customers/readers who were interviewed for a local feature on Postlapsaria and my LiveJournal. I'm pretty sure I reconstructed an I <3 NY shirt for her. Years later, that's exactly where we met.
I sometimes forget that I met a lot of my friends online (particularly LJ), because at some point they become real-life friends and you forget where they started. It's pretty funny to think that years ago, I was the one sending Holly clothing to wear - now, she's sending things for my own wardrobe. Once my new stuff is complete, we'll meet somewhere in the middle. It's kind of awesome to remember where we started, and see where we are now. But it's even more exciting to think of where we're going. Did I mention that her twin sister is a freaking scientist? I pretty much got to watch these girls grow up, and vice versa.
How long have you been reading my blog? Did you ever read my LiveJournal, or even my Open Diary? Were you on LJ, and if so, what was your username?
p.s. If you own the Audrey tank that I'm wearing now, tweet a photo of you wearing it to @draclothing for a $25 store credit to use at d.RA. It's available at Nordstrom online here, and in stores. Considering it's only $28 and you'll get $25 in credit back, I'd say that is a pretty good deal!
