a year ago today: starting to become gloria(ous)

darlings!

a Very Special day.

a Year Ago – april 9th, 2011 – we published our first Ever post on teamgloria.com………….

we had wanted to write So Badly (that didn’t sound quite right – clearly we wanted to write Very Brilliantly) – we meant we were Desperate to express ourselves using the written word after a Long Time of not doing so, since we became something of a Suit .

the Day Job (shhhh!) came with a Great deal of deeply Interesting Travel to exotic places so we wanted to ‘document’ That.

Many Moons ago, we had paid our way through University by taking Photographs and dearly wanted to start shooting again (and looking to a future of photography books and small-but-beautifully-curated-exhibitions at Staley Wise and Peter Fetterman, please ;)

Oddly enough – on april 9th, 2011 – we Did have Tumors – but we didn’t know until May that There Was A Problem.

In fact, that week – we had Just returned from Washington (yes, we went to That House Of No Hue and yes, the Man himself was there, in the same room (oddly Versailles like to be honest – the decor, not the Leader of the Western World) but as we didn’t shake hands, we cannot say we’ve Met him (although we Have met Debbie Reynolds and Boy George and Sir Ian McKellen and William Shatner and Many Other Most famous personages, darlings) per se.

we had also (under Yet Another pseudonym, blush) had one of our Short Plays performed in NYC (most definitely Off-Broadway, in fact, as we recall, somewhere deep and dive-y and east village-y but Awfully Hip).

so Much has happened in twelve months………

But nothing like what is About to happen ;)

Patience is Not our strongest virtue.

and we just wanted to say how much we Relish (in a lip-smacking, beaming-at-you-way-from-the-sofa-in-SoHo) – yes RELISH – talking to you, while we see everything unfold.

Please keep talking in the comments bit below.

You have No Idea how much we Squeal with excitement and Joy (often on the subway platform, heading to the sniper-fire-of-midtown-manhattan) when we get a little notification that There’s A Comment.

It’s a blog.

So this is most definitely a Shared Experience.

and it is Utterly Delicious.

Thank you for reading.

don’t forget to write (hint).

Love from us at teamgloria, darlings xxxx

  1. (I just tried to comment but am not sure that the comment went through). When I first read your blog, I felt as if I had discovered a kindred spirit. I so enjoy reading your posts! I am a native of Smithfield, NC, home of Ava Gardner and barbeque! I love chandeliers, champagne, and the majority of pretty sparkling things as well as creative, genuine people. I also love technology and have held “day jobs” in marketing for technology and life sciences companies for many years. To learn more about me, check out: http://www.about.me/ruthdobsontorres. Also, I blog at: http://www.myshecave.com. I especially appreciate writing that sparkles, and, without doubt, your posts do and are glorious! Keep them coming and thanks for sharing!
