I published my first Blog Post on February 27th, 2018. From that day forward, I’ve been on a crazy but awesome journey of blogging!

There have been lots of ups and downs, but overall I’ve learned a TON of stuff over this year, and it has been a great experience.

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of my Blog, I’m excited to have a very special event with all of you!

Free PDF Event

This event is now over. 7 of my PDFs were available over the week of February 27-March 5. Now the PDFs can be found in my Etsy shop.
