A Month in Review

A month ago today I published my very first blog post.

In that month you guys have BLOWN ME AWAY!

When I started this, I made a goal for myself: get 500 readers within the first year. I was expecting to maybe get 10 readers my first month, but I wound up hitting just under my yearly goal. You have no idea how happy and excited it makes me when I check my stats and see that people are actually taking the time to read what I write. It is such a fulfilling feeling.

I am forever grateful for each and every one of you that takes the time to read my blog posts, like or comment on my Instagram pictures, and favorite or retweet my tweets.

You guys are seriously the best.

There have been days where I get home from a long day of work and all I feel like doing is crawling into bed to binge watch “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” or “Vanderpump Rules”. But then I think of the amount of people I will be letting down if I don’t get a blog post up like I originally promised all of you. You guys keep me going and you make this all so worth it.

I just wanted today’s post to be an appreciation of all my readers and a review of what was on the blog this month – for those of you who only recently came across my blog.
