These past few months of my life have been huge when it comes to personal growth. I have met an amazing group of new people that love life and have inspired me in so many ways. It is because of them that I’ve recently felt especially motivated to continuously put my best effort into Sidewalk Ready. Not only will this keep my content interesting for you, but also keep me from becoming complacent. I know I took a step back from writing personal things on here, but I’ve been feeling more and more that I want to incorporate details about my life again. I discussed this with many people close to me, and after some affirmation from some of you lovely readers on my facebook page, I’ve realized that it’s time again. I’m ready to let you back in.
So on that note, I’m actually going to tell you where I went while wearing the outfit in this post! One of the friends I’ve recently connected with more is a special lady that you all might be familiar with, Tieka from Selective Potential. Tieka and I met a year ago, but only recently did we take the time to truly get to know each other, and I am so glad that we did. This particular evening, she and I went to dinner at one of our local favorite restaurants, The Winchester, and had a fantastic time chowing down on thai lettuce wraps and sharing our stories.
I feel so fortunate to find fresh life in Grand Rapids through these new friends, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer will bring. This season in Michigan has always been my favorite and I know that I have countless beach days, bonfires, meaningful conversations, and laughs to look forward to. So here is a sincere thank you to the many soul enriching people in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you all.
Also, thanks to YOU for being here. I don’t know many of my readers, but I appreciate you more than you know. Your support and encouragement certainly does not go unnoticed. It is my hope that I can give back to each of you as much as you have given to me. I just love this crazy, scary, mind-blowingly strange, but beautiful, blogging world.
