Crying In The Middle Of An Apple Store

This is a little story about how I can get extremely emotional about the simplest things. But it's a good story, so I think I'll share it with you. A while back I was contacted by an amazing company called OnSwipe, and they asked me how I would feel about making my blog iPad-friendly. I said yes, of course. Why would I not want my blog to look better on an iPad? And that was that.
I didn't actually get to see this new, beautiful, app-like format in action until fashion week. I was early for a show, so I decided to mosey on over to the nearest Apple store and check some emails. When I was finished, I checked to see how the new OnSwipe format on my site looked.
Holy cow.

It was beauuuutiful. The images had crazy high resolution, it was easy to navigate, and my website looked amazing! I knew it would look good, but this totally exceeded my expectations! I was standing there with this iPad just freaking out. I don't know what came over me, but I was just so happy! I literally wanted to go around screaming  "Hey you! look at this!!! I made this... thing!!!" I guess this blog is kind of like my child, and seeing it in all its iPad glory made me feel like it had graduated college and moved on to bigger and better things. I honestly got a little bit emotional.

I didn't want to miss my show, so I eventually had to tear myself away from all the digital wonderfulness. I was really tempted to run all over the store and pull up The Girl In The Check Scarf on each iPad, but I resisted the urge. Thank you, OnSwipe. You totally exceeded my expectations and made me start crying in the middle of an Apple store. 
With all that being said, The Girl In The Check Scarf is now on the iPad! Rejoice!
If you are using an iPad, you should be redirected to the new blog format as soon as you go to www.thegirlinthecheckscarf.com. Thanks OnSwipe! You rock.
