je fleuris

je fleuris / i am blooming.

You know what I forgot? I forgot my blog's own birthday. What a bad parent (like ANYONE expected differently, lol). Excelsior Lady turned 1 year old on November 11th. This baby was born on 11/11/11 - check out that lonely first post! - which means you will probably always be able to make a wish on my blog, and I hope it comes true.

What has happened in the past year of my life? A whole fucking lot, actually. And this playlist I'm listening to is making me all emotional about it. I don't think I'm ready to dive into it here yet, but maybe in a few weeks or something. I know it's not Thanksgiving yet, but I feel like I have a lot to feel grateful for. Everyone always says they have great people in their lives, but I really think I have them all beat. There is so much beauty in my life that I don't know what to do with it all, besides sit around and smile at nothing like a crazy person. How did I get here?

I would like to thank Martin and Erin tons and tons for nominating (and second-ing) me for December's blogger of the month on 20sb! They are awesome. If you haven't cast a vote yet and ya like me, here's the discussion topic. I wouldn't mind being featured ;)


  1. Happy 1 year bloggiversary. Let's all eat cake.

  2. I wish too, that I have started my blog on such a date as 11/11, but since I didn't, I'm glad you did. congrats!

    have a great thanksgiving!

  3. I haven't been on or used 20-something bloggers in FOREVER - but I went on and voted just for you <3

  4. You're welcome Hanna. I really enjoy reading your blog, you're a great writer! Keep it up! :)

  5. Happy Blogiversary to you! Its always cool to make it to a year and have all those posts to look back at! Yet, bittersweet because it all feels less newish. Welcome to the second year!
