Gettin’ By With A Little Help From My Friends

8 Jan

I have always been a social person.  I love meeting people and hearing their stories (maybe because I’m a teensy bit nosy).  I love hearing things about them that are like me and thinking how much we would get along, and I love hearing how we’re different and thinking how cool it could be to live life from their point of view.

Today I had the opportunity to skip school and attend a professional development session. I was so nervous about not knowing anyone going into the situation, but I ended up meeting a pretty cool group of ladies that just so happen to also teach in my county.  They were friendly, funny, and had some great ideas, which I will most certainly be stealing.  This was definitely a bonus on top of my day of work-away-from-work.

When I started this blog, I wanted to just help myself stay on top of some of my goals for this year.  The blog served two purposes: keeping me accountable and helping me reach my goal of taking more pictures and documenting my family’s life.  I had no idea how much I would enjoy the interaction between myself, my readers (all 6 of them, just kidding-I actually hit 400 views today in exactly 7 days), and other bloggers.  I love reading every comment that is left on my posts.  I like hearing if you relate to my chaos or think I am totally insane.

I have also gotten back in touch with some of my friends from the good ol’ days (you know, before I dropped the teen from the end of my age and became responsible for paying my own way).  One of those friends is Laura. She has a great fashion blog and highlights many local vendors. I recently won this necklace on her site.

Today she nominated me for a Liebster Award.  I was super excited about being nominated for this award for up and coming blogs.  I have several fun things to do in response to the nomination and can’t wait to dive in., I will include them in a future post and hope you return to check it out.

I’m appreciative for all the help she’s given me and readers she’s sent my way.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you, my old and new friends, while I continue to try and reach my goals for 2013.

Thanks for reading,

Jaime
