Welp ... it's almost that time. I only have a few more posts for this ol' gal (my trent.blogspot.com
addy) before the site moves on into its next incarnation. I always tend to wax nostalgic when milestone events like this come around (tho, none quite as milestone as this relaunch) thinking back to my first blog at trent.easyjournal.com
and then my first posts here back in June of 2004. My life has changed so drastically from my first blogging days. Sarah and I were living together in Grosse Pointe Park, MI, I was a brand new teacher still in graduate school ... I was dating Tony, who was then living in St. Louis, MO. I never, ever dreamed that I'd be able to blog for a living and here I am, living a very happy and comfortable life in SoCal. It's because of my blog that I met David and have been allowed to experience some amazing things and meet some amazing people. It's really remarkable how much my life has been enriched ... and all because of I decided to start writing an online journal for fun. Thruout the years, I've communicated and have been very fortunate to meet a plethora of Pink
readers ... having an ongoing, back-and-forth conduit to get to know the many of you who enjoy reading my blog has prolly been the best perk afforded to me by my blog. I very much look forward to continuing our communiqués and am anxious to hear your feedback on the new site (which will go live at midnight Eastern Time tonight).
But first, comes the party ... folks, I'm nervous as hell. I've never had a big party like the one that I'm having tonight and I'm excited and a bit scared all at once. We got my girl DJ Samantha Ronson
to spin and the shindig will be at S Bar
. I hear the guestlist looks really fun ... there may be a celeb or two in the hizzy (not to mention some of the Hot Dudes of the Week
from All American Guys
IN THE FLESH -- Woot!) ... but I'm most excited that my friends and loved ones can party with me tonight. I picked up Sarah from the airport last night and all of my SoCal friends (and some imports) who are in town will be with me tonight. Much love goes out to my party sponsors Nestea
and Nikon COOLPIX
for their hard work on this party. I'm just very excited for tonight ... I can't wait to share all the pics and stories with you tomorrow :)
And so ... I have a few more posts to go and then I'll be out for good on THIS version of the blog. I've got a whole lot planned for the future on the new site ... I look forward to moving forward with all y'all in my new endeavor.
