A Fond Blog Farewell


Miss Aimee, you didn't think I was going to let you sneak away so easily from the blog world did you? Not without a little farewell speech at least! For those who haven't heard, Miss Aimee of Mostly Mod is hanging up her blogging hat and moving on.

Aimee was one of the first few commenters I ever had on my little ol' blog, and I believe one of the first to add me to her blogroll, so of course I formed a bit of an attachment to her! (Don't you fellow bloggers out there act like you don't know what I'm talking about). I was smitten with her blog from my first visit there and remember leaving a slew of comments on her posts. She always wrote so open and honestly about her life and it seemed every week she had something fun and exciting planned with her family. I remember thinking "Man, this gal has endless energy and creativity!" A true zest for life, if you will. It all really inspired me. Not to mention her amazing photography and her cool sense of style.

When I was fortunate enough to meet her while she was on vacation here in California, I was SO nervous beforehand because believe it or not I am actually pretty shy in "real" life. I was worried about what I would say, how I would keep the conversation going and how not make myself look like a complete dork. Luckily Aimee was super sweet and I immediately felt at ease. We delved into conversation like we were old friends. We talked about our lives and a bit about blogging, and funny enough she was the one giving me advice and consolation after I told her about some of the uneasy feelings I had towards blogging lately. She is truly so lovely and I cannot express enough what a positive impact she has left in my blogging heart.

I will without a doubt miss seeing a new post pop up in my google reader from Mostly Mod. So Aimee, thank you for all you have put out there on your blog, all the time and energy that you spent on it and for your friendship that I will always hold dear.

  1. I feel the SAME way! I think Miss Aimee was one of the first to start commenting on my blog as well. It will be like when a fellow co-worker that you were friends with leaves... you will keep doing your job, but it will never seem the same without her. Miss Aimee - if you ever come back to blogging, PLEASE let us know!
