Laced Up In Love & Gratitude

Blogging has been a part of my life since I can remember putting my hands on a computer. I’ve been blogging since I was 14 (which is a very long time, trust me). I did it to make friends. The ability to create this online space where I could feel comfortable being myself and somewhere I could call my home was such an incredible feeling. 

Through the years, my blog has evolved, changed, and morphed into different things… just as I have. It’s been a representation of how my life has changed. It’s allowed me to create dreams for myself and it’s encouraged me to learn more about what it is I want from this crazy adventure called life. 

These past couple weeks, my life has gone through some changes and I can’t help but feel nervous and so excited about the next chapter. In reflecting on this, I wanted to share how utterly thankful I am to have you all in my life. Whether you just stopped by or having been coming to the blog for a while, thank you for the bottom of my heart. I can’t honestly express how thankful I am to have this space to call home and how incredibly honoured I am that you’re here with me. 

This blog post isn’t going to be a long one. In fact, it’s really not meant for anything other than chiming in to you with my thoughts. I’m kind of liking these raw, un-curated daily rants. Perhaps I’ll begin doing them once a day? I’m thinking of calling them “Daily Thoughts” and having them be completely honest posts about what I’m feeling or doing. Perhaps they’ll be accompanied by a vlog component?

So today I’m definitely feeling laced up in love. I’m feeling gratitude. I’m feeling excited. And I’m feeling lucky to have you all in my life. It was only fitting that I’d sport my new favourite Lace dress (from Tobi) to showcase that. I feel like it totally encompasses the feeling I’m feeling right now – being completely laced up in love.

Thank you again friends. You make every day a special one.
