Happy New Year my friends! What a year it has been! Overall it was good year. Sydney graduated from college last May, I went on a girls cruise with my mom and the kiddo, I went on several mini trips with Topher, my business grew and I had the opportunity to collaborate with some new brands.
Just so you know none of this would be possible without the love and support from all of you! It may seem insignificant to you, but every time you like or comment on a blog or Instagram post it allows me to grow and have more opportunities to work with new and bigger brands that you will love. Being an influencer is my full time job and how I pay the bills to help support my family, and I appreciate all of you that use my links more than you know. I love any comments or DM’s telling me how excited you are about a purchase you made from my links or sending me pics of you in a new outfit I inspired you to buy or a recipe you saw on my stories.
I also love the friendships I have made through this crazy business! I try to keep things real and show true authenticity which sometimes means me showing up on stories with zero makeup and wet hair, or you all relating while I gripe about my family that can sometimes make me crazy. I know right now everyone is posting these crazy big goals for the next year. In the next year I just hope to keep plugging along and sharing things that you and I both are interested in and growing this little community. If I have learned anything this year it is to stop getting frustrated when I’m not skyrocketing ahead like some of the giant influencers out there. While I definitely work more hours now than I did when I worked full-time I still allow myself to enjoy time with my family and be present as much as possible.
To wrap things up I am very grateful for all of you, and I can’t wait to see what the upcoming year has in store for us!
Happy New Year from us to you!
