One funny thing about being a blogger is that a lot things don’t seem super real when it’s only on the internet. It’s a lot like saying “Yeah, I know so and so… but only on the Internet.” Maybe I’m old school, but I pretty sure parents warn their kids about sentences that start out that way. I think that’s why I love doing events so much, because getting to meet readers and other people that love to craft is much more fun than sitting in my house working on lonesome, online crafting if you will.
Now, rewind to my trip to New York last week when I had a small freak out moment. Actually I had several freak out moments, but the one that I’m referring to that was actually of good news was getting to tour the Martha Stewart Living headquarters and meet the lovely ladies in person that I get to work with on a regular basis. I actually caught myself being super nervous on the elevator ride up, thinking “I can’t believe I’m really here.” I’m not fancy, or particularly charming, or any more talented than plenty of other people out there, yet there I was. I like to try and remain a particularly thankful person, but in that moment, I experienced a whole new level of gratitude.
I’m so thankful for those little victories that make all of the hard work and crazy hours worth it, even if just a little bit. And thank you for staying interested enough in my little projects to give me the opportunity.
