Several things have trasnpired lately that have seriously boosted my ego. (But never fear - my horse is not too high and my head is not too big. I'm still leading a life of paralyzing self-doubt. Promise.)
Nancy O'Dell responded to my tweet. I squealed when I saw this on my reply page. Yes, I squeal in real life. I am a huge fan of hers. She was recently awarded the Kappa Kappa Gamma Alumnae Achievement Award and I'm wishing that 1) she comes to Convention this summer to receive it and 2) I get to meet her if she does!
EduDemic mentioned me as, and I quote, a "well-known blogger" in their awesome article about the intertwining of college admissions and social media. I will definitely be passing this along to my parents and to my baby girl fashionista, who is beginning the admissions process. (She has Junior Prom this weekend. Boo hoo - she's growing up SO fast!)
I was invited to an InStyle party next week. Now, we all know I'm far from a red carpet darling and just about the opposite of hip, so I've been racking my brain, trying to figure out how I got on the invite list for such a cool, seemingly-exclusive soiree. My best guess is that someone at the magazine saw this post a few months back in which I professed my undying love for all that is InStyle.
Also, as of this morning, I have officially completed all of my Junior League Provisional requirements. I graduate two weeks from today. I am beyond thrilled!
All of these make me feel really good, and I think it has a lot to do with my overall state of happiness and contentment. Because, let's face it, none of these is a huge deal, yet they're all important to me and somehow, they all reaffirm everything I need reaffirmed. That I'm doing something right and that people appreciate me. And at this point, that's all I can really ask for. (Though a Mensch in Madras would be nice, too. Wink.)
