Remember when we were blogging – sharing our big and little achievements. What we were making. What we had created. A space to just be proud. Like when we were kids and wanted to show the things we made. To be seen. In our achievements. Our growth. What we were learning. Just talking about what was happening. Of course with a rosy shade.

It was a sweet soft space to share. Welcoming. Nourishing. Encouraging.
My introverted heart was really happy.
