I noticed I hit 100+ followers a few days ago and was so swamped with work that I didn’t have the time to make a post about it! I know some people don’t find 100 exciting, but I do! I thought I’d never get beyond maybe 10, so…yay!
First off I want to say, thank you all so much for following me! I love each and every one of you guys, even if we don’t talk. You’re awesome. You have no idea how much this means to me.
I didn’t think when I originally began blogging in 2013 (tumblr) that I’d still be sharing bits and pieces of life – years later! to be honest, I go back and forth more often than you’d know about keeping this blog going. while the online community is wonderful in many ways, it’s also a place for a lot of hate. for now, I choose to keep blogging because I believe it is a source for good…because I believe there aren’t many channels left in today’s world of media to show the good things in life. of course there are days that are hard and difficult and full of terrible things, but I believe life, marriage, motherhood and all those little tasks that fill your day are a gift. and I’m thankful for this little space on the big internet to share those things I love and to be a part of a community of bloggers doing the same.
At the end of my day, if I’m lucky, I’ll have ten or twenty minutes left to browse my favorite blogs or online sites. I want to be uplifted and edified and encouraged in those ten or twenty minutes of browsing and I hope this space can do something like that for you, too. I hope when you read this blog, over anything else you’ll take away a message of finding the joy in what is around you, in your own family and friends, in good food and good places, in having hope, in learning and growing, and in your own surroundings.
I made this blog for selfish reason too, not thinking it would go anywhere as my writing skills are mediocre at best, but you all proved that to be wrong. I haven’t smiled, laughed, or felt this happy in a very long time and for that, thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope to continue to talk, role play, and with all of you 🙂
I hope you guys continue to enjoy my content and I hope you’ll stay with me for 2016 and beyond. 🙂
