Excuses, Excuses.

I haven't forgotten that I have a blog, nor have I forgotten that if not for said blog, I wouldn't be doing what I do right now. It occured to me tonight that I started blogging almost 10 years ago and while that isn't very long compared to the veterans of blogging like Kottke or Dooce or Stephanie Klein, it's still a decade of my thoughts and words being published into the abyss that is the internet.

It's been a busy year so far. The good kind of busy that leaves you a little winded at the end of the day, desperately ready to sink your head into the pillow just so you can start all over again the next morning. I've been helping out at a local Bikram studio and getting back into my practice after almost a year off and after that initial, why-am-I-doing-this-get-me-out-of-here first class back, it feels awesome to be back. The best part of the new year? New work relationships and friendships that have been formed that I am thoroughly enjoying and those have led to some fantastic career opportunities.

Speaking of career, à la mode media is officially an LLC. That's right, this rodeo is official and I'm signing up clients so if you know anyone seeking social media and online marketing consultation/help or who needs someone to manage their company's social media, please send them my way. They can contact me at tabitha {at} lifealamode {dot} com.

Late last year, I signed up to be on the steering committee for the 2012 Lexus Nashville Fashion Week and was one of four on the communications team. Last week, Nashville saw five nights of great runway shows and the entire week's events were run by a great team of people who came together. We all volunteered, Nashville Fashion Week is a non-profit event and everyone worked their asses off. For a great recap visit NashvilleFashionWeek.com. I also wrote about my personal favorites from the week on the Her à la Mode blog. I couldn't have been more proud to have worked with such a dynamic group of people. To each and every one of you, I salute you.

Now it's playing catch-up and prepping for a trip out west for a wedding and more great days and experiences to come. I cannot wait, I may even take you guys along with me! But I will try my utmost to get the next blog post up and running soon. It's either going to be an amazing dining experience I had recently thanks to the guys who run Riff's Truck or a recipe for Fruity Pebble Macarons. Regardless of order, they'll both end up on here soon.

Stay tuned!
