A New Year brings New Opportunities!

I'm pretty sure this is the coolest thing to ever happen since I started blogging (over 3 years and almost 200 posts ago)!  If you use blogger like I do, maybe you can relate to part of this.  You're randomly searching through other blogs on the site, find some that interest you, you start following them and then you're regularly reading their posts? Or is that just me? Anyway.
A little over a week ago, I was going through my regular blog check and stopped at Simply Kelly for a while.  Why?  Because the post of the day wasn't a usual post displaying her personal home decorating makeovers or a post sharing her favorite things.  The post, instead, expressed her interest in wanting to see what other bloggers have found that they love (DIY projects, new recipes, goals, etc.) and if any of them would like to be a guest blogger!  When I finished reading the post, I kind of stopped for a minute, and went back and forth in my mind of why I should or shouldn't send Kelly an email and start talking about being a guest blogger.  I finally convinced myself that I should go for it and sent the first email.  Eleven emails later, after going back and forth about what would be a good topic to share, sending text & pictures her way, I opened up my email this morning to hear that my post was live on her blog. Seriously?! Coolest. Thing. Ever. (in my book!)

If you've been reading my blog for a while, or at least since summer, you may have already seen the post I sent her.  If not, here's your chance to see it! If you've seen it already, still hop on over to her blog, check it out, and leave her some love!

Thanks again, Kelly, for the opportunity to be a guest blogger for you!!
