So today is a special day for me...
That's right, today is my birthday, and I'm officially 25... yes, I know, I'm a quarter of a century. I should feel so old hahaha!
I've been through a lot in my 25 years of life, I've had some awesome experiences, some learning experiences, and some experiences that though they weren't enjoyable, they have made me into who I am today.
I want to tell you guys how happy I am that I have such a supportive community. Some of you who follow me have been by my side through thick and thin, and this is where I want to let you know that I truly do appreciate you!
So I want to thank a few of you personally:
Becca from Pivot Book Reviews:
You are an absolute doll. I'm so glad that we met up for coffee last fall, because that was the start of our awesome kickass friendship. I want you to know that I appreciate you and your wicked snark and deep love for books. Our friendship is something that I'm so happy that we didn't miss out on, because it would have been really easy just to stay Internet friends, but even our introverted selves would not allow it. And I'm so glad that I can call you one of my best friends. Love you, sweet friend!
Britt from Please Feed the Bookworm:
Britt, you are so fierce, Girl! And I want to thank you for being there for me through all the times that I was down and needed encouragement. You are seriously one of the sweetest girls I've had the privilege to be friends with. I can't wait to tackle the awesomeness and craziness that is BEA with you come May.
Kayla from The Thousand Lives:
You have quickly become one of my favorite people on the Internet. I feel like we have the same fangirling tendencies, and it's so nice to know that I'm not alone. I really can't wait to get to know you better, because you are AWESOME! Your encouragement and kindness reminds me to keep moving forward. I always love when we have our random conversations. You're amazing and everyone should realize this!
Cait from Paper Fury:
Ahhh Cait, my queen! You have been such a fun person to get to know over this past year! You have really inspired me to be a better blogger and have fun with life. I've truly enjoyed becoming friends and flailing about amazing books with you! I hate that we live an ocean away, but know that even though I haven't met you in person, I think you are amazing!
To Jamie and Addison:
Ah my good friends! You have been amazing to me this year. Jamie, I've truly enjoyed having you around on the blog and I love that we still see each other every so often even though we live 7 hours away. I miss you, and know I can't wait for the next time I see you! Addison, you have been fantastic this year. Our love of books has blown up exponentially, and so has the awesomeness of our friendship. Thank you for being you and for being so fiercely loyal. You are wonderful (with glitter all around).
I know there are a lot of you who I missed, but know that I really REALLY appreciate your friendship!!! You all are such amazing people, and I'm so fortunate to be a part of such a great group of book bloggers!
