Can we talk?

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

The fancy shmancy photographer did it! He was successful at cropping the crocs!

I told y’all a week ago that I would post one of the pictures of me wearing a too tight dress in a lavender field wearing crocs at the crack of dawn after a night of no sleep due to the worst storm in over decade. Whew! That was a mouthful… I guess I’m a little nervous.

This is my debut. Are you ready?

If I get no comments after this, I’m going to think that not one single person in the whole World Wide Web is paying any attention to my Lavender Chick blog. When you’re new at blogging – not to mention the fact that I didn’t even know what a blog was until 2 weeks before I started one, you can’t help but think you are kind of talking into a black hole.

Of course the fact that my blog is ranked 3 million + doesn’t gain you any extra confidence that anyone is even reading this thing. In the blog world, this ranking means you’re basically a nobody – you’re not even on the radar of the ‘those not yet on the radar’ radar.

Is anyone there???

I know for sure 3 people are reading this: My Mother, My Mother-in-Law, and my neighbor Dottie. And I think they’re probably just feeling sorry for me. Other than that, I might very well be talking into a big black hole.

Since I’ve been dating this blog for a while now, I think I’m ready to get more serious. When I first started dating the blog, I figured I would just go out a few times and see if I had any fun with it. Now, 6 weeks into the relationship, I’m feeling a little confident and vulnerable all at the same time. I can now actually see myself making a long-term commitment to this blog.

Oh, what the heck – I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours …

Okay, in this picture of me being me, I am holding my products on a silver platter in a lavender field. Why? Because first of all, these products are so fresh and natural, they could have only come right out of the field. And secondly, they are so good y’all, they should be served to you on a silver platter!

Yes, I’m biased about the products. But these products are my babies. I birthed these babies. I created them, labored over them, raised them, and now I’m ready to set them free – out to the cruel real world to be stuck in medicine cabinets, cupboards, and drawers.

Oh, the shame.

As their mother, I believe they’re packaged beautifully and should be exposed at all times for all to see: at your kitchen sink, your bedside table, and bathroom vanity. I truly fear they will be hidden away and their little feelings hurt. And what’s my biggest fear? That they will be re-gifted.

I can’t bear to think about it.

Here they are, the entire product line and me, viewed by you first. I don’t even have 3 of these products on the website yet. So, what do you think (I’m kind of scared to ask)?
