One of my dearest "imaginary friends" (to use her term) has decided to take a blog-break. Indefinitely.
When I read the news, I felt a twangity-twinge in my heart and I lost my breath.
It feels a little bit like ending a friendship, which is never-ever-no-thank-you fun, but then I realized...
My friendship with Mackin Ink may be ending, but my friendship with Karey M. herself, does not have to end.
Mingle. He's here.
If you have not yet visited her blog, you must head over immediately. Like, the MOMENT you finish reading this post. She has truly championed her own style of writing, and it is one that I have looked forward to diving into every day.
Her words glow and giggle as they blossom right out of the screen. She has the ability to sprinkle love and longing throughout her posts with the greatest of ease and the most earnest of meaning.
One thing that she loves to write will ALWAYS stick with me.
"my greatest goal for my girlies three: to add three women to the world who love themselves so much that they want the best for everyone in it."
Shouldn't we all try to love ourselves that much?
The simplest way I can say it is: Karey Mackin's writing will change you.
Karey, we will miss you and the tales of Uncle Sugar and The Girlies Three. You will all be brightly missed, but I just know that I'll go on being able to sense your spark and your sparkle all the way from here.
