A proud new dad sits down to have a drink with his father
"Well son, now that you’ve got a kid of your own, I think it’s time to give you this"
"Dad, you don’t mean-"
"Yes son, I do" *Dad pulls out copy of 1001 Dad Jokes, 5th Edition*
"Dad… I’m honoured…", he says, tears sparkling in his eyes.
"Hi honoured", replies his father. "I’m dad".
I’ve thought about making this post for a long time and this week seemed like the perfect time to do it. The nature of a blog lends itself to always talking about oneself, and that’s awesome. However, blogging is also about community.
Not to make this too sad, but a few years ago a well respected member of the plus size fashion community, model Mia Amber, passed away and one of the first things I thought was that I never even told her how wonderful I thought she was. That was a personal lesson in expressing love for people who are important in my life.
Blogging would be no fun without all those who read this blog and all the blogs I read. I’m sort of an introvert and haven’t met many bloggers in person. However, the fact that I admire each of these women is undeniable. This year, I’m thankful for the plus size & curvy blogging community.
