1000 + and Where it all Began

Sign via Etsy Shop William Dohman


I just realized that Erin Ever After is now at over 1000 followers (thank you Simone for being lucky number 1000!) which is completely bananas to me. But so, so, so cool. It seems like just yesterday I was trying to decide if I should take the plunge into bloggy land and upon doing so had but one follower, my Mom. My how things have changed. Thank you all for reading along and sticking with my musings even when life gets too busy to blog. I so appreciate each and every comment, tweet and email. So to celebrate this little milestone, I thought it would be fun to read back over my first post which started it all. Cheers and happy tuesday xoxo


   

It is 5:30 in the morning on a sunday and I have finally decided to sit down and create a blog. Why, you ask? I could feel my bloodshot eyes begin to water and beg to be closed as I sat on the sofa perusing shoe websites when it hit me...I have lost my f*!?ing mind!  Any normal person would be in bed right now, sleeping off the three (four maybe?)vodka tonics that I happily consumed earlier in the evening. But I am not any normal person, I am a very detail oriented bride to be who is currently searching for the perfect pair of shoes.  
I figure this blog might be the only way to remain somewhat sane through out this process.  Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love, love being engaged and planning a wedding but I have come to find that wedding planning has made me a bit...how shall I say this...obsessive, compulsive,overly detail oriented, up at 5 in the morning scouring zappos.com, going to make my sister and mother disown me if I don't stop emailing them every two seconds with inspiration pictures....crazed. And that, my friends, is why I feel the need to blog.  Welcome to my wacky world. Now what do you think of the shoes?

  1. I have those shoes in black and they are VERY comfortable. Really well-made. I wore them for a wedding once from 9am till 1 in the morning and my feet were still happy!
