A love letter to my blog. {Part 2}

Friday, March 30, 2012

Once upon what feels like a very long time ago now, back in 2008, I wrote a love letter to my blog. I wrote it only six days after starting just a small town girl, but I knew in only six days the same thing I knew in only six days of knowing Jenner, that I was led to this. And in the three + years I've been blogging, I have become incredibly grateful to have been able to chronicle so many beautiful moments (and even a few less than beautiful ones) to relive whenever I feel like reminiscing.

And right now, as my life is going through such a dramatic transformation, I am happy to look back at what has led me to this place and excited to share all that is to come.

Dear just a small town girl,

Thank you for finding me on that cold December night while I was snowed in and stir crazy. Since that fateful night, you have been here to chronicle what I like to call my ups and downs and all arounds. From historical moments to falling in love, from (finally) finishing graduate school to leaving the rain and moving to Vegas, you have been with me every step of the way. Spilling the (sometimes gory) lessons of my dating history? You were here. Embarrassing myself by going through my many fashion faux pas of yesteryear? Again, you were here. Just recently, you were here to share what may be the biggest news I'll ever have, the upcoming birth of my daughter. And, somewhere along the way, I wrote some things here that made me proud (like this, and this, and especially this). So, maybe more than anything else, thank you for those opportunities. You allowed me to get pissed off about politics and Chris Brown, while still letting me pour out my heart about my father. In other words, you have helped me become more of myself.

Thank you for that, sweet blog. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have given me a place to reflect and hide into myself and I'll always love you for that. Oh, and maybe I should thank you for waiting to let me find you until I was 30. (Can you imagine the stories I would have blogged about in my twenties? Goodness.) This blog will certainly change as I change in the next year, but it will remain a big part of who I am and who I am becoming and that makes me really happy.

Xoxo, Kathleen
