…I wrote my very first post on this blog! I had NO clue of what I was doing, but I just knew I wanted to write. I didn’t have any great expectations. I knew that I wanted to eventually parlay this into writing on a freelance basis. I could never imagine that I would eventually meet some great people, such as Paul Carrick Brunson, Shanel Cooper-Sykes, and others who have been featured on the blog. I never dreamed I would share some things with you guys, such as my mis-adventures in internet dating, my reaction to the death and related events of Mitrice Richardson, or share my thoughts on men and how I don’t understand anything they do (this is just one of the many posts where I ask questions). Who would’ve thunk I would start the series of “This Week in the News”, “Relationship Week”, or “Witty Wednesday”??? Certainly not me.
I’ve grown so much in this last year. I’m still Elle, but I have had some pretty significant experiences that have helped to shape and mold me into who I am. The name “Evolving Elle” is very apropos for me as I’m continuing to evolve based on my experiences. I know the things I’ve seen since I’ve been to DC I wouldn’t have seen had I lived anywhere else.
I want to thank you-my family, my friends, my suscribers, my readers-for sticking with me through this first year. I know the next year will be even more awesome! If you’re in the DMV, I want to see you tonight! I’m hosting a happy hour at Jin Lounge, located at 2017 14th St. NW (Between U and V Sts. NW). Elle’s identity will no longer be a mystery…if you haven’t at least figured out my real name! 😉 I also have a big announcement to share with you all as well, so to make sure you’re in the know, you may want to come!
Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
PS Be on the lookout for today’s 2nd post around 10 am.
Congrats on the one year mark!
Thanks, sis! And thank you for coming out tonight!
