Three year anniversary

It's strange that I'm celebrating three years this week. I honestly didn't think I would stick with my blog for very long when I created it in 2009.

But it has been incredibly fun and introduced me to some very important friends. Plus, it has given me a way to be creative and explore who I am as a person. That sounds so stupid, but I have a feeling you fellow bloggers understand exactly what I mean.

Since I am without a laptop or other recording device right now, I don't have the means to create another vlog for ya'll. Which is sad. Because seeing me in motion, unable to hide behind my eloquent words or a cheesy photographed grin, is like falling in love for the first time. And I wanted you to have that experience.

Well, I dug up a video I created for my blog's first anniversary a couple years ago. Everything I say in it still holds true and I still look the same. So, if you want to see what a dork I am in real life, press play.



Hopefully by this time next year, I'll have won the lottery and I can do something fabulous to celebrate my blog. Like, throw a giveaway where you win a trip around the world. Or, perhaps, technology will have advanced so much I could just jump out of your computer screen as a giant hologram and give you a hug. That would be cool.

Thanks for reading.

Happy happy anniversary, Jenny. You are every bit as bubbly and cute in person as I expected you to be. Here's to many more years of happy blogging! I can't toast with you tonight, but I can see you have a well-stocked bar behind you on the video, so just drink something for me, ok? -- Hugs. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I remember this video, so good to see it again. Happy 3 years to your blog. It has been incredible to get to know you and read your blog too. It has helped me in many ways. I love you! This post also reminds me that my blog must be approaching 3 years too. I remember starting it around the beginning of 2009 so I must check that out too.

Ohmigosh Jennifer I LOVE you - you are like the cutest thing EVER! Hooray for old videos! And for reaching your three-year anniversary! Happy, Happy Bloggyversary! :)

Movies on my Mind said...

Wow J-Fab, that's first time I've ever seen you in motion. It's strange to hear your accent because when I read your stuff I always have a Brit accent in mind. (You write so well that I often consider you one of us.)

You've got amazing eyes, like Disney amazing, brilliantly expressive. Heck knows why you're so hard on your looks sometimes. You look exotic.

Well done on your blog.

that video wasn't crappy at all! in facat, it was super sincere and a total pleasure to listen to and to watch.

happy 3 year anniversary Jen Fab!

Tights Lover said...

Congrats on your three years! I'm so excited for you and I'm looking forward to many more years of my favorite blog!

ps. Your comment on Monday made me very angry! If I ever do happen to be in KC, I can guarantee to you I won't shop there either? Who treats customers that way? Who treats people that way? That's so terrible!

...sorry for my mini-rant. Congrats again :).
