nine years

caravan sonnet

Caravan Sonnet, my little blog space turned "9 years old" last week. It is hard to believe that it was 9 years ago that I wrote my first post (you can read it HERE!). 

I am speechless that we are now at 9 years...

9 years of growing, learning, and sharing...9 years of perseverance, dedication, and hard work..

.9 years of pushing through despite severe illnesses ...

but mostly 9 years of becoming and 9 years of humbly connecting with this beautiful and faithful community of love and support. 

I started Caravan Sonnet as a way to reach out to the outer world from beyond my bedridden existence at the time (due to illness) and as a simple way to keep friends, family, and loved ones informed of what was going on with my confusing health story (which ironically was only going to get more complicated in the months to come). When I started writing in January 2013 I did not know that I was dealing with Advanced Late Stage Lyme Disease, Skin Cancer, and a myriad of other health issues and in a twist of irony, I didn't even really write about my health issues on the blog (except for some very general terms) until March 25th, 2013. And I still had no idea that I was still a full month away from my diagnosis of Skin Cancer and 4 other serious health issues.

As the blog has morphed into what it is now, I remain so grateful for your love and support along the way.Over the course of these last 9 years I have grown not only as a person, but as a woman. I don't think that you can write vulnerably, deeply, and passionately in a space for 9 years and it not change you if you let it. 

As I move forward friends into this 10th year here on the blog I just want to take time to say thank you again for following along, for joining this community, and for all of your love and support over these last 9 years. 

Y'all leave me speechless with gratitude.

Thank you so much to the brands and press that have partnered with me and the brands and press that will be partnering in the days, months, and years ahead! I can't wait to continue this journey with you and see what beautiful new adventures and days and blessings will meet us in this new year. 

THANK YOU for a beautiful 9 years...Here's to many many more!
