Pinch me…this feels like a dream come true! πŸ’—βœ¨

Last month I got the notification that GiftedandChilling has received 500 followers! WOW!

Thank you for your participation – this achievement would not have been possible without every single person here!

The WordPress community is strong and filled with so many amazing people – I am beyond grateful for all the support and love which I’ve experienced these past four years. Thank you for sticking by me through all this time.

It is a huge blessing to see the milestones that this blog has reached. From the depth of my heart, I want to say a GRAND thank you to everyone that follows GiftedandChilling and continues to read, like and comment on my posts ❀

Writing more frequently these last few months has been so much fun and as a result, it has made me happier and be more present.

I am also taking this opportunity to say that it is a pleasure getting to know all of you and reading your guidances, musings, and creative work 🀩 It is fun both learning and connecting with you.

I hope you are staying safe and wishing you great health! πŸ€—
