I just finished watching American Blogger and I am seriously a hot mess on my front porch. It was so beautiful and I am so honored to be a part of it! To watch my good friends give over a year of their lives, and sacrifice so much to chase a dream and make it a reality INSPIRES me. I just told Casey that it is so so beautiful and only inspires me to CREATE MORE, share more, connect more, and love more.
This crazy thing called the internet and blogging has been such a big part of my life the past 6 years. I’ve shared so much of our lives, our adoption journey, our struggles and our joys, and I love that it’s something that I [and future generations] will always be able to go back to. I process so much of life by writing, and there’s nothing I want to do more after the end of an inspiring evening/conversation/expierence than come home and write about it. Life is meant to be lived. then, for me, so much of it is to be written and shared. I still sometimes pour through my old posts to read the thoughts I was thinking on the day I became a mom, or when I finally realized that I was thankful that my life isn’t “normal”.
Through this space I have connected with women across the country that I now consider dear friends and sisters. This blog has allowed me to chase my dreams and tell stories on my African adventures, it’s fundraised our adoption, allowed me to spread the word about my beloved Noonday Collection, tell stories of people that are changing the world and who knows where it’s going in the future. All I know is I am so grateful to be a part of this time in history where we can share our lives with the world.
I want to be “brave and bold and dare to speak of life”.
