Everyone, THANK YOU for your support! I appreciate ALL of your recent nominations and heartfelt comments!! You don’t know what you mean to me. This past week, I’ve thought a lot of YOU, my wonderful bloggers, and I can’t tell you how many smiles you’ve put on my face! I LOVE being positive and trying to make THE BEST out of every situation, but trust me, it’s not always easy. I might write about “staying positive in tough situations”, but it does take practice and lots AND LOTS of repetition. I’ve had a great life, but we all go through the wacky roller coaster called life, so thanks for picking me up when I’m not feeling the greatest!! I love hearing (via comments) how I inspire you guys, but I want you to know, that YOU inspire me more than you could ever possibly know!!

WOOHOO, KISSES FOR EVERYONE!! YOU GUYS ROCK IT OUT ON A DAILY BASES!! YOU INSPIRE ME!!

YOU HAVE:

1} DRIVE, DEDICATION, AND WILL POWER

2} STRENGTH BEYOND WORDS

3} PRIDE IN YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS

4} LOVE IN YOUR HEARTS

5} SOUL IN YOUR MOVEMENTS AND WORDS

There is really NOTHING MORE I CAN SAY to show you how truly thankful I am to have you in my life…when I first started Stamped with a Heart a couple months back, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if anyone would be interested in reading my posts because as an author, ironically, I criticize my words and find fault in my works on a daily basis (but I’m working on it), so I figured I’d be writing into the GREAT UNKNOWN, maybe getting a few followers along the way, but surprisingly, every single one of you happened and you made me feel PROMISE…

Promise in myself and promise in my writing. I can’t thank you enough!! Whether you know it or not, you’ve given me back my confidence!! 

I’m not sure if this is too early in our relationship to say…BUT…

(Kristin sweats profusely, gulps, and then reveals…)

I LOVE YOU!!! (Yes, I know I said, “I love ya” in my title, BUT there IS a difference aaaaand I know this BE*CAUSE my swimmers told me so (I’m a swim coach)! They said, “ya” is playful, but “you” is 100% real!)

Now that THAT is off my chest (thank goodness), I hope you all have a lovely day!!

    you’re a darling. so optimistic. and i am such a Peter Pan/Neverland fan! i had a playroom as a child with a sign that said “Shawna’s Never-Never Land” on the door, and two years ago my roommate and i had a joint bday party that was Disney themed — and we dressed as Peter (her) and Tink (me). 🙂

    You sound like me after a few Moscow Mules…”I love you, and you, and you…” Haha, JK. This is very sweet! I was just telling my friend how my blogging friends sent me more birthday wishes than my real life friends. It’s a crazy cool community.
    BTW, I never realized so many Disney movies had so many abandonment issues. 😉
