Y’all! This blog was nominated for an award. I’m shocked and feel so honored. It’s the Liebster Award, which helps bloggers get more exposure to their sites. This award has been around since 2011. You can read more about it here. Hannah at It Takes One nominated me, and I highly recommend checking out her blog if you have a minute. I love the her “it takes one” (to change your everything)–it’s so true!
What Makes Me Passionate About Blogging
I’ve spent my life as a painfully shy person who longed for deep connections. That’s how I was as a kid, and that’s what I fell back into as an adult in a new place with a baby and a husband who worked far away. I knew I could be better, but every attempt to go out and make a connection left me feeling lonelier, stupid, too different to ever have a “tribe” the way so many women talk about. I struggled with anxiety and depression (which can still pop up from time to time). The only times I don’t remember feeling that way were summertime as a child, as a high school junior/senior, and in college.
