Oh why hello there everyone!
So, as I've been hinting I've had some pretty exciting news I've been meaning to share with you all... Last week I got an email from the clothing company called StopStaring! to do a promotion for them. They told me to pick some of my favorite of their beautiful, retro inspired dresses and they would send me one free of charge to keep! Oh. my.goodness. I was beyond shocked and flattered and of course I jumped at the chance to do something so awesome and exciting!

I never believed that anything such as this would happen to me. Me. Lauren. A little seventeen year old gal from a tiny town in Ohio. A girl who honestly sometimes doesn't believe in herself even though everyone else may believe in her abilities. At that moment of receiving this email, I actually felt worth something. Like maybe I am good at this blogging thing, and maybe there is someone out there who could want someone like me. And maybe, just maybe there is more out there for me than my small, narrow minded town can offer. Ever since I started this blog, my ultimate and absolute dream was to be sent free clothing to model and take pictures in. Isn't that just every blogger's absolute dream?

Never in a million years (and probably even more) did I think something like this would happen to me. I'm in such shock, and so incredibly thankful. More thankful than you all could imagine. Blogging has been such a rewarding experience, and this opportunity makes all of the hard work I've put into my blog real and not just a fragment of my imagination. For all of you bloggers out there: your dreams seriously can come true. I never thought mine would, but I was totally wrong. They can come true, and they have.
With much love, Lauren.

Lauren, you look super cute in those shorts and the first pose (top) and the last pose (bottom) are my favorites. The last one is particularly striking because it conveys a sense of upward mobility. You actually appear to be lifting up off the ground, a metaphor for launching an exciting new phase of your life. Your last post was dazzling as well. Your colorful outfit was reminiscent of the styles worn by girls your age in the late 60s which encompassed the Summer of Love (1967) and the Woodstock rock festival (1969).

Dear friend. Please make a note to visit my blog tomorrow. In my new post which I'll be publishing first thing in the morning I will be tagging you, giving you a blog award, posting a personal message to you, and giving you a "homework assignment." Good night, Lauren, and God bless!

Lauren, I am so, so very happy and excited for you!! I really am just smiling ear to ear right now. I know exactly what you mean with blogging being such a rewarding, opportunity-filled experience. Never in a million years would I have thought that all the stuff that's been happening to me through blogging would've happened either. Anyway, dear, I am just thrilled for you and for all the adventures that have yet to come for you! ((hugs))
