This photo is all types of awesome.
Where to begin? Well firstly, I should mention that this blog has given me something I thought I’d never get; confidence and a bucket full of motivation. The confidence and motivation I’ve gained from reading comments/reblogs/emails is something I don’t think any amount of weight loss could have given me and for that I am truly grateful.
A few months ago I received a ridiculously incredible email, and I’ve kept it close to my heart as well is in contact with the wonderful lady who wrote it. She’s a NYC version of me and we met up this past weekend when I graced her fair city. (omigod I know! I thought I’d *never* meet a person from The Internets, I mean seriously, who does that?)
Meeting up with her was everything I thought it would be and more. It’s actually quite bizzarre, because if you’ve been following my humble journey you probably know me better than some of my close friends, which proved true when I met up with her.
She took me to the new Highline Park which was ridiculously awesome and cool to see and then we headed over to Billy’s Bakery where I bought the most delecatble cupcakes (see below) I’ve ever tasted, which is saying a lot, as yes indeed, I am a cupcake connoisseur. Didn’t you know?
Last week she emailed me and requested my size for a (very unnecessary) “surprise gift” and I had to guess what it was. Remember this random post? That was me guessing.
It turns out she got me a holy crap BEAUTIFUL, exactly my style DVF dress (pink flower box). It’s stunning and beautiful and size 8.
I tried it on and it doesn’t fit, which I must admit is quite awesome because motivation now has a name on it (smokin’-hot-dress-or-better-known-as-the-item-I-would-save-in-case-of-a-fire)!
It was truly inspiring meeting you and words cannot express my sincerest thanks for the dress and motivation! I’ll post a photo of myself in the dress
hopefully in no time and this is your open invitation to please come visit me in Toronto any time.
I will forever hold your kindness close to my heart and I look forward to many NYC visits in the future.

And on that note, Good night dear blog. Sweet dreams.
