Thank You

Y'all are THE BEST!! Thank you sooo much for your sweet and uplifting words! They mean so very much to me!!

The good news is that I am sitting her re-reading the post in question and I am realizing that while it is sassy, it's not really insulting or hurtful. And after going to the wedding, I realize that everyone was feeling the exact same way. No one knew what to think about the location or any of the specifics. In the end everyone had a ball but they were all saying the same things regarding their hesitation.

Honestly it was not something to freak out about like I did. But it was late at night and made me terribly uncomfortable to see that people were googling in search of that one particular post. And it make me VERY uncomfortable to re-live that man calling me out as PPC in front of such a large group of people. I have no idea how he knew it was me. Maybe my outfits? I don't know. I was so frazzled that I didn't stop to ask him.

I don't live in a bubble and know that what is on the internet is truly there for all to read. I do try to find a balance between sharing my life stories and protecting myself and friends. I have thought over and over about going private. But if I went private I wouldn't have any new friends. I like meeting new blog friends. I like sharing and love when y'all are so incredibly helpful (like last night's post!). I just didn't realize that it was still available to read via my blog, as if it had never been deleted. That is what sent me into a tail spin. Lesson learned. I think it's a good lesson, even if it resulted in a few tears along the way. And all this fuss over a silly blog post. It's not like I have some lurid (or any for that matter) video of myself on You Tube or anything.

Deep breaths! I have a busy weekend ahead of me to focus on instead of this silliness. I'm sending each and every one of you lovelies kisses!!

Awww, so glad you're feeling better! Wish I could've been there to give you a hug during your freak-out!

And I totally agree on the private thing... I would feel so closed off if I went private and wouldn't continue to find new fabu bloggy friends!

I think this is the first time I have left a comment on your blog. I was going to respond to your post from last night because I was almost in tears too. I am so glad you are better today, and remember your posts make people smile!!

Bloggy admiration coming your way in the form of a Diamond Award. I am so glad I can give you this award because you deserve it after everything.

Glad you are feeling better.

It's completely understandable to freak out. I would have had a heart attack if someone called out my blog name. Only my family know who I am on the web. I love your post so I hope this scare won't stop you from being yourself on your blog.

glad you are feeling better! I do have to admit...being "found" is my worst feel as well. That is part of the reason I went private...but I still wonder if someone will find me. Since I am private I do feel closed off to the rest of the fabu bloggers, but if I come across someone who I thinks would enjoy reading mine as much as I enjoy theirs I will just comment and ask if they would like to be invited to my world. Keep on blogging!!! :)

Glad you're feeling better! Sometimes I think, as women, we just need to a good cry when we're feeling like you were.

I have had the same thoughts about going private as more folks (in real life) seem to have found my blog...how I don't know and from the number of comments I get, apparently they are lurking and not commenting...it just feels a bit weird!

Big lesson for all of us!! Thanks for sharing the story.

Glad you are feeling better. I have family make comments about things they don't like reading on my blog. "It's MY Blog" and "Make your own blog" have been known to come out of my mouth! Chin up and a glass of wine are my prescription to you for feeling better.

Glad you are feeling better about everything. I know how you feel about private vs. not. It is a hard line to follow. But I love meeting everyone too.

BTW- I received your ADORABLE and GENEROUS gift box this weekend and did a little post over at my blog. Oh my word, everything was so cute and I love it all. Thank you so very much!

Awww, you are such a sweetheart for being so concerned about others' feelings. I just read your past couple of posts...I haven't visited in a while (forgive me!). I hate that you went through that, and I'm so happy to hear you're feeling better.
I love your blog and cheery (and sassy!) outlook on life!
God bless you :)

So glad you are feeling better. I just gave you a bloggy award, although I think you already received one. Oh well, you can never get too many rewards, right?!!!!

E.B. in Tennessee said...

Forgot to tell you -- I have something for you on my blog!

Hollie said...

I only know you from blogging, but I think you are just a doll! I can't imagine that you would ever hurt someone's feelings on purpose! (and no one who really knows you would EVER think that!!)
