I am approaching my 150th post on Home Everyday. There have been two things that amaze me every day:
1.) That I have found enough to write about both here and at South of I-80
2.) That there are people that actually read what I am writing, and take time out of their day to give some positive feedback.
I never knew that writing was in the cards for me, but apparently it is something that I really enjoy. Whether it is writing about bathroom stripes, doing a baking tutorial, or commenting on the news of the day, I have found a voice, and am proud to share it.
Also, the comments. Seriously, you guys are the best! If it is an email I have received, a Facebook message, or a comment here on Home Everyday or South of I-80 the feedback has been nothing but positive. People have written me to simply encourage me, or to tell me how I have inspired them.
Here are some comments and notes I have received lately:
"Ok, Erin, this is crazy!!! Not only can I not believe what kind of transformation a color change did for the room; but how you also give me the 'how to' of doing it w/mistakes and corrections made [through] the process. NOW, when...and I seriously mean...WHEN are we going to see "erin at home everyday" on a daily TV show? You have that kind of spirit going right now. An every day, how to, can't figure out where to stare...neither did I, but I tried...something. I LOVE IT!!! Erin, I feel that this IS your calling, or at least where you should be right now. It allows for what you want, which is time with your children. And, freedom, time to be you. (At least this is my interpretation in a simple form.) Rambling, but still..don't stop, I enjoy." ~ Angela
"I read your South of I-80 article about childhood toys and careers and I cracked up! Great article! Also after your last Home Everyday post about the Lemon Cookies, I reached out to Mary Beth and will be helping with the cookie care packages! Thanks for sharing that link! You're making a difference, girl, keep up the great work!" ~Andrea
"These look AMAZING! It's like Thanksgiving in an appetizer. High Five! :)" ~Maria
Because of this, I want to keep writing. Every single day! I cannot believe that there are people out there willing to donate their time or their glasses because of something that I mentioned. THANK YOU very much! Also, THANK YOU for the positive feedback, keep the comments, likes and virtual HIGH FIVES coming. They are truly appreciated by this gal who likes to share. As I have mentioned before, if it weren't for you guys, I'd be talking the Target clerk's ear off. Now she can work in peace (she thanks you too).
