Ugh, you know how you have things that just get screwed up, no matter how hard you try?! Well my last giveaway, WAY back at the end of October was one of those things.
First, I accidentally shipped everything to myself when I thought I had drop shipped stuff to the winners. And then, when I did get the pictures, it took me frick'in forever to get things packaged up and mailed out. But before Christmas I finally got my act together and mailed everything, or so I thought.
Last week I started to get some of them back in the mail...UGH! Yup, I had slipped a digit, so to speak, on the nice spreadsheet that Mr. Tide so generously made me so that I could keep track of who got what photo and their address. So I had the right name, and the right street address, but the wrong city and state...gotta love my old eyesight and small spreadsheet print I guess! Thankfully it only appears to have happened on a handful of them, so I will be working on getting them off to the "right" addresses this week.
To those of you who have so patiently waited, or more than likely cussed me under your breath for having not received them, they will be on their way, I promise. Let's just hope that 3rd time's the charm!!
In other news, today is my 2 year blog anniversary...or at least I think it is. I started my blog in early January, so I'm just gonna go with the 10th as being the anniversary, because frankly I'm too lazy to look back and confirm the actual start date.
Just like these yummy pecan rolls that I kind of, sort of made from scratch yesterday, I consider this blog to be a sweet success. Sweet because its success has come as a complete surprise. When I began writing it 2 years ago, well I figured it would be long forgotten 2 years later. With the attention span of a gnat, I thought there was no way I would still be blurting out whatever happens to pop into my head on this little blog of mine. So to be here 2 whole years later is a huge success, and something I'm kind of proud of!
It truly has been an amazing journey, one which has led to so many wonderful opportunities for me. But I view those work opportunities as a yummy cupcake, maybe a fluffy white french vanilla cupcake. The icing, which I would imagine is a delicious buttercream tinted a lovely shade of aqua, is what I'm most appreciative of, and that, my friends is what you represent to me.
You all are the icing to my cupcake, and everyone knows that the icing is the best part. It's the part we savor, sneak tastes of, and save as the "best for last" part of any cupcake. The friendships I have formed through this blog are what have kept it going for the past 2 years. Without them, without YOU, I would have walked away a long time ago and done something completely different.
So thank you for the sweetness each of you bring to my life. Whether you just read and never say a word, whether you comment often, whether we chat outside of my blog, or whether we have actually met in person, each of you is important to me, and to this blog.
Who knows what this next year will bring here at Low Tide High Style, but with you guys by my side, I know it will be worth the price of admission!
