I'm going to cut to the chase this Friday morning and just say this. Y'ALL ROCK. I was blown away by the response I got to yesterday's post. Each and every one of you that commented (and those that didn't/couldn't!) just reaffirmed how awesome the blog world is. I appreciate all the encouraging and sweet words, and I agree with you all so much in regards to how and why things have changed over the years. I answered everyone I could but just to sum up for those stalking along:
- Blogging has definitely changed, but everyone out there is still awesome.
- Commenting from phones is difficult, especially with the Bloglovin' App. Cmon BL, help a blogger out!
- Paid posts kinda' suck, unless it's actually a good fit for the blog/blogger. I only do them on occasion and truly only try to write them if it's something I feel good about, relate to, or find relevant to my blog and my readers. I have a collaboration coming up with Uncommon Goods that I'm stoked about because I actually shop there and love finding gifts there this time of year. Stay tuned ;)
But I think that's enough about blogging for now. Just know I appreciated the feedback SO much and it was nice to "meet" even more of you who have been silently reading along.
In other news? My main man's birthday is tomorrow! I felt a little guilty because it truly snuck* up on me this year... but I think it snuck* up on him too ;) I don't think I can really top his surprise Nerdy 30 from last year, gosh that was a fun night! We're low-key celebrating at home over the weekend and then Sunday we'll be doing a combination Thanksgiving/birthday get together with Jared's family. I can't wait to celebrate my favorite guy and hopefully have a lot of fun over the next few days.
*I know you're supposed to say sneaked, not snuck... but I just can't bring myself to. The end.

It's hard to believe it's actually time for holiday celebrations. While it's so awesome to think we have a new little buddy to enjoy this season with, I'm not gonna' lie- it feels a tad bit stressful too. How do you momma's handle the holiday chaos with a little one? I'm just picturing the traveling around, no naps, packing practically the whole world to go over to someone's house. Ugh- send help.
That's all I've got for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead of you. Happy Friday!!
