Happy Tuesday! I wanted to have a special post to say THANK YOU to everyone who reads this blog. Whether you have been reading since the very beginning or are a new arrival, thank you! If you read it every day or just once in a while, thank you!! If you are a dear friend who I have known forever or someone who found me on the internet, thank you!!!! I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you have come here!!!
I cannot believe all that has happened since I launched this blog, both personally and professionally. I have had so many wonderful opportunities, adventures, laughs, learning opportunities and have met so many talented and inspiring people. I feel grateful every single day that I have found a hobby that has grown into a career that is the perfect intersection of all of my passions and skills.
The other night one of my sisters (guess which one) said that I am full of myself. I laughed it off that night (because I thought to myself, "do you even read my blog!??") but have been thinking about it some more. Yes, I could definitely see how people think that- I mean I write about myself, my family, Jesse and Lillian, the fun things I get to do and cool people I get to meet. But if you really know me, you know that I have never taken myself seriously, I laugh constantly, am not afraid to make a fool of myself, and love having a good time. And honestly, because of the blog I have become more reserved and introverted because I do not want to be too, too, too in peoples' faces. I used to be extremely impulsive and often that was misconstrued as full of myself but as I have matured and grown, I now pause before acting or speaking (sometimes, hey, baby steps!). And get this, for every thing I say there are five more things I want to say, but I have found that it is to better to watch and observe and just listen to others.
Basically what I am trying to say is THANK YOU for reading my blog, not unfriending me when I am constantly clogging up your newsfeed, caring, and sharing!!
Lots of love and genuine gratitude for the gift that my friends and readers give me every day!!!! Without you all I would just be that weird six grader that made home videos of herself!!!
