Currently, I am | July 2016

I made a goal of being more personal on my blog this summer. It’s funny when I think about it. When I started seriously blogging after moving to CA 2 years ago, I hated how personal my blog was, I envied blogger with sponsors and advertisers and all their free products.

Now, after some attempts to be ‘that’ blogger, I have learned something I knew long ago, something I had to learn again. I am not that blogger. Yeah, I get free products to review from time to time, but honestly I want to cultivate a place of honesty online.

I feel SUPER awkward when I review products on my blog, seriously I feel like a really bad salesman sometimes. Books, these I love to share. I mean it’s really the reason I started my blog nearly 10 years ago!

I love when I can share my heart, my whole-heart with you. The hard thing about sharing my heart is I’m leaving myself completely open to the world, especially the online world, which if we are going to be honest is mean, critical and will leave horrible comments…

With all that said I have no idea where to begin…so how about a currently post!

Currently I am…
