GOOD BYE!























Dear Marc, or rather dear people who read this, whoever you are, wherever you are and whatever your reason for reading the random ramblings of this beer slut on this page,

I'm taking a break.

Feel free to mail me at emi@lovegun.net if you'd like a mail whenever there's something to read here or somewhere else.

I'm walking into the world as a new woman as I'm shedding the responsibility of writing hundreds of meaningless letters to a celebrated man of fashion.

What next? Who knows? Suggestions are most welcome.

Mark your mail with letsmeetupforscones in the subject line.
That would make me feel great, almost popular.

love
-e

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! WHYYYYY???So what am I supposed to do on cold winter nights??

jenny said...

OH i am sad to hear this, but having spoken to n.l. about your life, understand completely. i have so loved everything you've written...cannot wait until you come up with something new.

sat next to a swedish family on the subway yesterday and thought of you.

Lisa said...

Åh, vad tråkigt! Din blogg var den första jag började läsa regelbundet, och jag kommer att sakna den.

Will said...

this is so sad but between being homesick and probably just tiring of it you must want a new creative outlet.

we should all endeavour to find a great new thing for you to write about so we can keep reading you.

thank you!

Iheartfashion said...

So sad to see you go! I check your letter daily and it's always amusing and/or inspiring. Gook luck in your new endeavor, whatever it is!

Bye Emi and thanks for all the laffs. I'll miss you so much! Have a beautiful life if you can.
Love from snowy Canada,

Anne said...

What?! ah, no... Have loved the way you write, and those lovely pics..
(Passed your talented cousin today.. was that I sign of some sort?)

All the best!

lena said...

i am so sad that your are ending this amazing blog! as a busy student I frequently check your blog whenever I should be doing my homework...hehe you always have something witty to say or some hilarious picture...i hope you come back with something even better...but good luck to you!

eurobrat said...

Oh no! You will be sorely missed. Would love to meet up for scones one day, but until then I will revel in your archives :)

Best to you and yours.

Lotta Lundgren said...

Nu får du tid att skriva en bok som alla vi kommer att läsa när den kommer ut! Då kan vi sitta och skryta om att vi läste dig redan när du var en blogg. Prima.

Till dess kommer jag sakna breven till Marc. Mycket. Lovelove.

LML said...

Im going to miss all your letters and look forward to the next project you do!
p.s. you should publish all your letters into a book, with pictures and everything! Marc himself would do the forward letter in the begining, it would be on the New York Times Best Sellers list and I would buy a copy for all my friends!

Noo - but I am not surprised - your posts have seemed a bit glum lately!

Best wishes to you and your family

Please reconsider! You brighten the day of too many people! Your sense of humor is amazing and insightful and I am extremely sad to hear this.

That's such a shame. Your blog is only one of two which has managed to hold my interest longterm. I wish you well and look forward to reading what you do next!

Elaine said...

(wah for me but...) Hurrah for you moving on to other things - will miss you. Take care and come back soon, OK?

Nooooooo! But let's meet up for scones! xx

Will miss your blog, always makes me smile! Good luck with whatever the future will bring your way!

You will be missed! I have enjoyed reading you everyday, and have of course enjoyed your photographs...good luck!

Libby said...

I will miss you something awful, E. LTMJ has been terrific fun. Much luck to you! Libby

Fan said...

Näää. Det är det som är det värsta med bloggberoendet. Plötsligt lägger bloggaren bara ner och man får aldrig mer följa personen. Det blir någon sorts sorg, om du förstår vad jag menar. Inte riktig sorg, men ändå, någon man följt riktigt länge som bara försvinner plötsligt.
Kram och lycka till med allt och tack för att jag fått läsa dina brev!

I've followed you for a relatively short time (5 - 6 months) but loved every post. LTMJ was such a fabulous idea whatever your next venture will be it's bound to be something like another phenomenon.

Oh Emi, you will be so missed! I can't believe you're doing this. Sitting in freak cold weather(and the heating is broken) New York, just thought I'd log on to see how you're doing...and this is what I find! I'll miss your posts but I can't wait to see what bigger and better things you're going to go on to...

Really enjoyed the blog, so thank you. Good luck with your next project.

Oh, si triste alors!

Nann said...

Nooooooooooo, nooooooooo, nooooooooo ---- don't leave!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE don't go.
You're one of the very few fun and funny blogs on the Internets.
I never comment because I am just an unknown person in the USA somewhere but I looooooooooove your blog and have been thinking that sometime soon you will get discovered and be famous.

Karolin said...

Allt har sin säsong. Uppsatsskrivande, tulpanblomstring och bloggande. Det gäller att njuta under tiden! Tack för breven!

Ha det!

Anna said...

Oh no! Redan!? Min vardagslyx - borta! Tack för alla breven - hoppas Marc förstår vilken förlust detta är.... Lycka till med nästa projekt, och välkommen hem till Stockholm!

I'm another anonymous Edmonton reader saying that your blog will be missed.

You are a very talented person!

Alla dessa brev och inte en gång har Marc Jacobs svarat på något av dem. Eller, det kanske han har. Under pseudonym. :-)

Dear people, I love you all.
Thankyou!

I hope this break will be a short one! It was my husband who made me become addicted to your blog. I love your style of writing and the pics you sent from your home in Sweden. Your little girl and boy even make me think about having own kids! So cute they are!!!

Looking forward to reading from you and your family soon!

j said...

So I thought all these odds and ends you have been writing you were storing up for some grand essay. It all seemed to hold promise for disclosing all the secrets, all the mysteries of our lives. I wondered if what I was reading was a daily cryptic oriental euphemism the leading idea of which was obscure to me, but you would soon make it clear and the scales would fall from all our eyes…no?

theresa_o said...

e YOU ARE THE BEST. Daggers in my heart, I will miss you. Thank you so much for all the time and fun you put in to this. It has been such a joy to read your posts. They have been sketches of a magiclife far away for me and I will truly miss them. If you do-not start something soon we will all have to start our own 'letters to e' site - again thank you

cindysurg said...

This makes me so sad. You are the only blog I read. I used to work with lovely folks from Sweden and I miss them so much. Your clever, witty writing makes me think of them all the time. I wish you well and am hopeful to find you happily entertaining the world again soon!

Anonymous said...

I will miss your blog, as it is the only one I read. I'll probably still be around if/when you feel like writing something here again, it has sort of become a habit. I wish you the best of everything, take care and good luck with whatever you do.

demonesse said...

ah i've really enjoyed reading your blog and your quiet way of writing..

all the best in your future and i hope to stumble upon your next writings!

one day i hope you will be able to find both beautiful and comfortable shoes... (might i recommend Camper?)

Carl Fredrik Holtermann said...

Har många gånger funderat när jag läst dig vilken bok du skulle skriva om du skrev en. Jag tror att den skulle vara rätt annorlunda LTMJ. Undrar om du har påbörjade manus, refuserade manus, snygga anteckningsböcker eller sjukt mycket word-dokument hullerombuller i datorn. Du kommer sakna random ramblings snart igen. Tror jag. Kram och good luck med vad du företar dig.

Dedra Wolff said...

e- going in the way of the quintuplets, eh? I will miss your blog and you. Have the freedom to be the phoenix and rise again.

WHAT? NOOO! you WILL be missed. and could you possibly return one day? PLEASE!!!?

Anonymous said...

E- I found your blog from a link on a web page called "Boing Boin - A Directory of Wonderful Things". Truely this blog has been a wonderful thing. As most of your readers say, it has been a sunny spot that I look forward to in my day.

Indeed you will be missed. Please do us all a favor. Go on to do great things. Continue to photograph your children and write about your days events, even in a personal journal. As we have enjoyed this glimps into your life (somewhat voyeuristically), you, A and your children will appreciate and cherish it in years to come.

Best Wishes

Thank you!

NOOOO!!!
you can't leave, it will ruin the blogging world as we know it!

Crystal said...

Oh E. :( I went on a little hiatus myself these past few weeks to return to this! I was really looking forward to your witty posts and new pictures of your beautiful children. I have followed from the beginning and I'll miss clicking your blog in my favorites every day. Marc is going to miss you too. I know we'll all be checking back to see if you've changed your mind. I cant meet for scones, but if I ever spot a perfect pair of MJ flats (not heels for your sanity!) I will send them across the pond.

Bill said...

You were my first read in the AM and my last PM read most days. You are missed and seem immune to my suggestion to charge for your insights and comments on the passing scene.

We will miss you and the world will be different. So you know, I waited to write until I couldn't stand it.

Natasha said...

LOOK at us all checking by, in the vain hope you'll have relented.

-e said...

Ah people! I love you!

I will write you something, but not right now. I don't know when.

But just getting these comments is enough to make me happy on the gloomiest day. Not to mention the e-mails. Like a friend of mine put it:
Emi, it's like you died and got to attend your own funeral.

love

Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.

Experience an easier way of shopping for bespoke suits & shirts at Euro Tailors
