y'all make me smile :)
Over the past couple of weeks I have had a few blog readers send me notes to say that they have gotten useful information from here and that they love reading what I write on this blog.
Can I just say that getting little notes from people who connect with something I write is, quite possibly, one of the best ways to immediately put a smile on my face.
I love hearing that I made someone's day a little brighter, helped them learn something new, made them feel connected, or helped them in some other way.
I share our lives here because I enjoy it. But also because I find comfort in knowing that other people are going through the same things I am and blogs are one of the ways I connect to communities that are similar to mine. Feeling the same things, being curious about the same things, experiencing similar things...in today's culture of busy calendars, big cities, long commutes, and the giant internet, finding community is sometimes difficult. If the small part of our lives that I am able to share here makes someone else's day easier, it's worth it to share. And if some of what I write leads me to new experiences, new friends, and personal growth- that's even better :)
I really do appreciate everyone who reads, whether you're family members who are really only here to see photos of the little guy (I know what y'all's priorities are ;) or are strangers who have stumbled here and have stuck around. Thank you for sharing in our tiny slice of the internet.
much love, L&N
p.s. send me a note! or a comment! I love to hear from people that are enjoying the blog :)
