Peeking Behind The Blogger Curtain

Vintage Danielle has been up and running since August of 2011, so quite recently. As I look through the older posts and pages, I got the impression that my readers might not really know who I am. I do have an About and My Family page but they only provide a quick peek. If you'll let me, I'd like to step out from behind the blogger curtain, just for a moment (like in Wizard of Oz) to share myself with you. Let's see, what can I say that hasn't already been said....

  • I am 21 going onto 22 on March 24 (Aries baby)
  • I'm more than ready yet terrified to graduate college. My whole life has been centered about school so it'll be strange to move on.
  • I was born with Nager syndrome, which is a rare craniofacial disease that includes underdevelopment of the facial bones/features and lack of the 3 little inner ear bones. I do wear tiny hearing aids and have had about 20 operations, I'll be having a corrective jaw surgery within the next two years (my mouth will be wired shut for 3-4 weeks, ahh!)
  • I'm self-conscious of my eyes, due to the syndrome, but I'm slowly trying to cope with it. 
  • My mom is my rock and my main support system. She's always been so supportive and wants me to be happy. How lucky am I? 
  • I'm the only child in my family and loved it! More Disney trips, ice cream sundaes, toys, and hugs for me :) 
  • I'm more introverted than extroverted. Now you can say that it's due to my syndrome; I was shy as a child and it carried through into my early adults years OR it could be due to the fact that many people annoy me and I rather just be away from that. However, when I'm in a small group, I'm more myself. 
  • I grew up watching I Love Lucy which started my love for all things vintage.
  • I always wanted to be a Broadway actress and live in NYC for a year.

 I hope you enjoyed getting a clearer and deeper picture of who the girl behind Vintage Danielle is!

I also consider myself an introvert - pretty much quiet until I get to know someone, then I don't shut up! haha. Well stay beautiful & if you ever come to NYC, email me - I'll give you some great tips :)

I too am an introvert, preferring to be indoors alone with books or writing/painting with my cat, lol. Though I do love the gallery scene. I'm wishing you the best of everything and understand a lot of what you're going through. Hopefully the surgery goes well, my vintage loving friend! What an adorable pic! :)

Hi darling, welcome from behind the curtain, this was great getting to know you a little better! I also an introvert, not good with large groups. You are so brave and inspiring about your condition, i admire you so much for that! I had no idea about it. You are lucky to have a good support group. You are a wonderful person and I wish you all the best with your surgery.

You are such a beautiful woman! I had no clue you had this syndrome- clearly you are a natural beauty. But more importantly, you have so much in your life beyond that. Hope all goes well with your surgeries. You will do amazing!

I'm a bit of an introvert/ shy until you get to know me as well. The most surprising I learned was your age! You come across as very mature & self assured I thought you were 25ish! You have a beautiful smile, good luck with your future surgery. You are resilient :)

I enjoyed this personal post
