You guys. I nearly cried when Jennie sent me an email asking if I was interested in writing for her (and Elizabeth’s and Jonna’s) style blog. I’ve always wanted to write. I started this blog as an outlet for the tiny creative side of my brain that was fighting for a little attention. The past two years that I was home with Noah, I toyed with putting myself out there and finding ways to write more but never did. Maybe I was a little nervous that no one would like what I wrote. Maybe I didn’t have confidence in my words, my ideas. Maybe I thought blogging was a silly little thing I did for fun and could never be more than that. Jennie thought differently and for that I am so very grateful.
Now, I go to work everyday to make money to help support my family. And after work, after the family is fed and the boy is in bed, I get to do something for myself. I get to write. I get to spend time doing something that is so, so good for my soul. It feels good to be happy and fulfilled again after such a long road of disappointments and setbacks. Thank you, ladies of Style Lush, for your warm welcome and I can’t wait to meet as many of you as I can in August. I am forever grateful for this opportunity to be a small part of something so great.
