Thank you, thank you!

I can’t believe I made it to Freshly Pressed– the front page of WordPress. MY FACE is on the front page! I’m just starting to find my voice and I get this amazing opportunity. I am so, so thankful to all of you all who saw my little ‘ol blog, commented, and/or started following me. I’ve read each and every one of your comments. And I appreciate anyone who even just took a few seconds to check out it out.

So, how did I do it? I have no idea. I think my photography helped. My fiancée, George, took the pictures and as an artist, he has a good eye for composition. But rather than that, I’m chocking it up to pure luck. WordPress has tips here if you want to strategize. Good things have definitely been coming my way lately. Thanks universe, thanks WordPress, thanks ya’ll.

love,

Thankfulness

I have to admit, I’m not always the most thankful person. I always want more. It’s the perfectionist in me. Or consumer, if you want to be political. :P

I want to live in a bigger city with more opportunities and exciting food. I want a better wardrobe. I want to travel. I want more free time. Want. Want. Want. Want. Want.

And although I think it is good to keep my eye on the prize and all those clichés, I also need to remember what I have. I live in a beautiful, historic town. I have a closet full of clothes. I’ve been all over the country. And I’m apparently making enough time to blog.

ANDDDDD something really exciting happened to me today. I won a grant! When I found out I literally skipped around the library. So that means I will be traveling to a conference in one of my favorite towns, Asheville, NC this weekend! I’m more excited and grateful than I have been in a long time.

How do you stay thankful?

love,
melanie
