OMG it’s Christmas Eve! Also…I may or may not be really tired as I type this. Also (part 2), I might be a little semi-tipsy (read: blame this sweet red wine for any typos). But you know what, whatevs…it’s the holiday season. I’ve missed my besties back home in Baltimore and life is short so…you should have brunch with unlimited bottles of wine, yes? #JudgeMeNot
But on a serious less rambling note, I am so thankful. 2015 has been a doozy. But in all the best possible ways. And I couldn’t let another blog post go up without thanking you guys.
I hate cliches! But that saying that all your favorite celebrities say when they accept their awards, “I would be nothing without you” holds true to my world. I love you for riding with me. Like for reals!
It’s been a long FIVE years (umm so yea, I forgot to have a party…maybe next time). I feel like I have thousands of best girlfriends and we literally get to talk every single day. Sometimes two or three times a day if I’m fancy with my editorial calendar. Every time you comment, send me an email (or a Snapchat), or see me on the streets I feel super loved. Like when you bashfully yell out “Hey, that’s Gorgeous In Grey” I get all mushy and whatnot inside. There are parts of my soul that get warm that I don’t even like to acknowledge but I let you go there!
My writing journey has been more than overwhelming, but you guys have been there every step of the way holding my hand through all the tough times. Like when I decided to move to New York, on a whim with just a few thousand dollars in my savings account. And when my mother died of cancer, whoa. Seriously! Y’all were there…on deck with an outpouring amount of “you got this, girl” and “we’re praying for you”! Sometimes I wonder how people make it in this world without their own crew of folks rooting for them like y’all root for me (but not enough wondering to want to share my MyTys).
In 2016, I’ve got a lot of ideas. So many that they scare me! But I know y’all got me and you will support me. Expect to see me expand my personality beyond my blog. Meaning maybe I will do some “Cocktails With Ty” type of event (not that name because it’s been taken like four times already). Meaning maybe I will finally release this book that I’ve scribbled on random notepads. Meaning maybe, just maybe I will create more merchandise for my tribe! Who knows. But what I do know is that me, you and 2016–we got a date with greatness!
BUT until then, I am officially on break. Happy Holidays and see you in 2016.
