My Next Chapter & Taking a Break from Blogging

Thank you! I’ve always known that this day would one day come. I never knew when or why or how, but goodbyes/TTYLs are sometimes inevitable as bittersweet as they tend to be. As one chapter ends, another begins.

This past chapter of my life has most definitely been one for the books, and I want to start off by saying that I will never be able to fully express my gratitude in words. Blogging has been a huge part of my life these past few years, and it has taught me more than I could have ever imagined. When I created this WordPress blog in college, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that it would receive close to 1,000,000 unique views. It has been such a humbling and life changing experience; and for that, I will always be indebted to each and every one of you that supported me, encouraged me, and cheered me on every step of the way. I could have absolutely never made it without you.

Though the world of blogging can have its ups and downs, my experience brought me more joy and confidence than I could even begin to tell you. I was always so thankful to have this incredible creative outlet along with such an inspiring and kind community. Blogging challenged me to the fullest extent, but the lessons learned were truly invaluable.
