In just over a month, it will have been officially one year since I decided to head over to America.
Long term readers know that a big part of this move was to see if I could elevate this blog from a hobby into a full-time career.
I’m glad I took that leap of faith- I’m thankful, grateful and proud to see that this somewhat risk has been a positive one- I’m now doing something I absolutely love every single day and able to support myself comfortably doing so.
Over the last year, I’ve experienced life in New York City, Columbus and now, Los Angeles.
The last two months have been incredibly busy.
Fellow bloggers may have noticed I’ve been slightly absent in their neck of the woods, but I promise it’s been for good reason. There’s been a ton happening in the back end of the blog and I can officially spill the beans.
Before we get into it- MacKenzie– I am STOKED that I didn’t spam that email you sent back in December.
To all the blog readers who come on TBMW with each new post and leave comments….
