Girls of a Certain Age is one year old today, and I’m feeling particularly grateful to all of you for creating such an engaging and lively community around here. Your comments and emails never fail to add a little more sparkle to my day. So big hugs all around. You’re the best set of girlfriends ever.

    I’m more of a lurker normally but I had to pop out to wish you a very very happy blog birthday! Honestly, your blog is the one I’m happiest to see pop up on my reader: I appreciate your opinions on pop culture, politics, and fashion, you have introduced me to some wonderful new designers and stores, and your links are the perfect morning reading. Thanks for all you do!

    Happy birthday and a huge congrats to you and your blog! It is literally one of my first clicks when I get to my desk every morning, client demands be damned! Your posts are hilarious, insightful, poingnant and such fun to read. My wallet has felt the pain that I’ll pay that price!

  45. GT says:

    I like your blog a great deal. It’s smart, witty and funny (as I like to think of myself), and the fashion is, for the most part, for adults (and I don’t mean that in an ageist way). It’s one of the treats that breaks up my work-day.

    Keep ’em coming!
