this year brought the death of the most important, fabulous, greatest person i have ever or will ever know...the sadness of rosie's passing will affect me every second of every day for the rest of my life. my grandmother was and is my best friend, my biggest influence, my style icon, my closest comrade.
while 2010 brought me the greatest grief of my life, it has also brought unexpected courage, strength and success. i have also made some truly great friends this year, and for that, i am thankful.
i'm heading into 2011 with a sadness in my heart, but also with an excitement for things to come. this year will see the launch of the new rosita jones website, our first ever style exhibit in february, rosita jones trunk shows in cities like charlotte, atlanta, washington dc and seattle, and living and working part time between charleston and new york.
life definitely works in mysterious ways...sometimes it's great, and sometimes it sucks, but the ability to adapt and make the most of it all is what makes us who we are. someone else will always have it worse than you, and someone will always have more than you. we just all have to make sure we stop to take care of the people we love and never take any of it too seriously.
my hope for everyone is that 2011 brings you all the happiness and joy you deserve...as long as you give it, you will get it back tenfold.
here's to a happy and healthy 2011...
