Earlier this year, I declared my word for 2015 to be contentment. In my own words, I wrote, “I choose to be happy with the status quo. Last year I wanted to ‘grow my blog business’ and I worked on it, and networked, and went to a conference, migrated to wordpress, and more. In the end, I spent a lot of time, energy, and money for not much of a difference. As I reflected on this past year, I decided that I was happy with the readership I have and the connections I have made. And in 2015, that is enough for me.” And I chose to look around not at the growth that didn’t occur, but all of the wonderful things that surround this blog- the connections and readership I had, and the joy I find in simply writing.
Wouldn’t you know that when you stop looking through the grass for a four leaf clover, that is when you find one? Shortly after that post I received an email from Ace Hardware, THE Ace hardware, asking me to join their team of bloggers. I am happy to report that I accepted the position, and am looking forward to pushing some of my boundaries with Ace (I already have some plans up my sleeve….).
The best part of this for me, is that along side me my Thrift Score Thursday cohost and good friend and creative mastermind (she wears lots of hats!), Brynne from The Gathered Home, is joining their team with me! I am so excited to share this experience with someone I adore! And speaking of someones I adore, check out the rest of the amazing team!! (And hey, that’s me in there!!)
Check out all of their fabulous blogs!
Primitive & Proper (That’s me!)
I am so excited for the year ahead, and looking forward to working with Ace! I have been dying to share this with you!!!! Have a great Monday!
