Happy New Year’s Eve, all! As you can tell by my lack of posting, the holidays have been a bit hectic (in the best way possible). I would be remiss if I didn’t post one last time in 2014, however, so let me just say this:


Generation grannY came to life in January 2014, and it’s been such a source of joy in my life. Not just because I love writing, but because of the way I’ve felt so connected to all of you who read so loyally. Those of you who tell me of the laughs and thoughts it brings you. Those who encourage me in private messages, despite being strangers. Those who know me personally and still take the time to read. Those who tweet, comment, and share. I cannot express the depth of my gratitude for the way your kind words and excitement about posts motivate and inspire my writing, as well as warm my soul.

So, again, thank you. My 2014 was a beautiful year throughout the ups and downs of life, because writing for Generation grannY has given me consistent happiness. From pageant bodies and Miss America results, to the 3 stages of summer for the average white girl, to what to expect at Pure Barre class, it’s been an amazing ride! I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings alongside all of you! Cheers!

T Swift had a pretty good year, too. (Don’t know if you’ve heard of her, but…)
