i have had a lot of great experiences in my life ; i have moved across the country [twice!] with a two-door car and a few hundred bucks.
i have had really great relationships and others that have totally crushed me.
i lost a family member and felt an absolute hollowness.
and all of that has made me this person.
but i have got to say ; this year has changed my life.
i took an idea, busted my tail, kept pushing and was able to quit my job and follow my dream.

that read the blog. comment. say nice things. have spread the word. purchased ad space. and bought my products.
i appreciate it.
heres to a great year [and some big goals!]
