Break Out The Champagne Y’all…

It’s awards nomination time! Since starting my blogging journey, I’ve been so happily surprised by how awesome and supportive everyone has been! Not to mention how talented. It’s really interesting to read about other people’s journeys, adventures, life perspectives and opinions on bajillions of topics- all within the wonderful blogging community! It sounds so cliche, but it’s like getting the opportunity to see the world through other countless cool people’s eyes- anytime you want. It’s fantastic!
