Everything changes, the one eternal truth, yes? So Visible Monday is changing into a meaningful chapter of my past, making way for new adventures. Today will be the last Visible Monday style link-up, but not the last of Not Dead Yet Style.
The friendships and connections we’ve made over the years are priceless, as well as all the knowledge and wisdom shared. We’ve seen each other get married, divorced, retire, have grandkids, start businesses, redecorate our houses, move to new countries, and grow a bit older together.
The Visible Monday style link-up started with a post I wrote in June 2011, called The Invisible Woman. For the first actual Visible Monday post in July 2011 I asked you to email me your pics. And six of you did, what fun that was! Advanced technology has made link-ups much easier but I miss the excitement and freshness of those early attempts.
For nearly nine years we’ve been enjoying the easy companionship and style-sharing at Visible Monday. We participants have gotten to know each other in a deeper way, and even made lasting friendships. Now it’s time to expand and enjoy our connections on new roads. I have ideas, and I bet you do, too.
I’ll miss your style pictures and all the inspiration you’ve provided! But we can still communicate; I’ll be blogging once a week and branching out into other realms that touch on aging, beauty, love, and living peacefully. And of course I will be following your journeys on your own blogs, and sending nothing but gratitude and affection.
So I’m dispatching big virtual hugs to you, and look forward to seeing you in fresh new ways. Stay fabulous, and thank you again!
