It's been a (long) while, hasn't it?
It saddens me to post this, but Lifestyle of Style will soon be done. I had wanted to say this earlier, but I hoped for it to be a surprise.
Well, that's because I've been working on a new project since the spring but began devoting all of my time to it since the summer (hence the hiatus). I was torn between mentioning it and keeping mum, but it's been taking so long that it seems somewhat unfair to keep this blog looking like it's going to continue.
But before I go, I have to say that I've learned a lot from this experience. To begin, it's been a lesson on dedication -- of realizing just how much work needs to be put into creating online content. In this, I've learned about myself (most notably about my work ethic and my tenacity). I've changed as well, and I know I'm leaving with a greater sense of motivation and optimism than I had when I started. I look forward to the future even though
But it's time to let go of this project and to grow up.
And so my final words are of thanks to everyone. Thank you, people who checked this blog -- it meant a lot to me, even if you perused for even five seconds. Thank you, people who let me photograph them -- you helped me understand that people are always more ready to help than one might imagine. And thank you, people who supported me in this small enterprise -- you taught me the value of kindness and human connection.
I hope to see you all when my next project is finalized. I promise I'll be better about letting you know about that!
