I realized on Monday, amidst the hubbub of the upcoming Presidential Inauguration, that A Crimson Kiss was celebrating a milestone of its own–four years! It was a treat to revisit my very first post, and amazing to see how very little has changed; I still love Swiss dot, letterpress stationery and Champagne, but then I guess the best things never go out of style.
For a time, this blog's banner (back when this was Le Petite Coquin) read, "It is only the modern that ever becomes old-fashioned," and that Oscar Wilde quote is still the name of the folder where I collect shoe snapshots, beautiful bouquets and other bits of wedding ephemera. Thank you for sharing in my love of the classics, my fondness for a stiff drink and my predilection for pretty–it truly means the world to me. John and I are popping open a bottle of rosé tonight to celebrate, and I'll be toasting to each and every one of you.
