It Has Been "Work..."

Happy Blog-iversary to me!!!

Well, technically, the FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of On Common Ground is next Tuesday, the 25th.

Did you absorb that, people? FIVE YEARS! I have been doing this thing for FIVE YEARS. With the exceptions of being married and Bikram yoga, I've never done ANYTHING for five years straight.

So, as recognition for my "work" on this blog, I rewarded myself with a little gift. I am in NYC for business today, and I stopped off during my lunch break at Barney's to pick something up. What I wanted wasn't there. So I went to Bergdorf Goodman and found it.

The Balenciaga Giant Work bag.

No... It's not the color I wanted. I wanted a bright color, not white. But NO ONE has them. It was tough enough to find it with the giant stud hardware. But, when I thought about it, I realized, "I don't have any black bags!"

Seriously. I don't. Purple... Green... Black cherry... Steel grey... Chocolate brown... Vermilion... But no black.

This is how great this bag is: I can fit everything I brought with me in my carry-on (which, grated, isn't much) into the bag. EVERYTHING!

This is my new travel bag.

Congratulations! I have been avidly reading your blog for almost a year, and I'm a huge fan. I ran into it thanks to google and my search "yoga paris", as I was looking for a yoga studio near me. You inspired me into trying out Bikram, and I've been going there ever since. And, as a matter of fact, I shall be grabbing my bag and heading down their way as soon as I've sent this comment off.
Keep on blogging, you rock! :)

Congrats to you, Missus! I've enjoyed this blog for quite some time and, I must say, you've inspired me in many ways. Keep on doing what you do because, frankly, you're awesome at it!

Beautiful Balenciaga, too!

Nice work! I've been reading your blog for the last couple years, and when I first started I went back to the beginning and caught up on almost every post. I keep coming back because of the diversity in topics (bikram, career, fashion, travel, food, etc.), fun pictures, and I appreciate that the posts are the right length. So glad you're back to blogging more frequently lately too. Here's to another 5 years! :)

Congrats! Your blog inspired me to do a bikram challenge, and to start my own blog. But now I just want a Balenciaga!
