To My Readers:
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wanted to take this time to thank each and every one of you who have supported me from the very beginning of A Courageous Beauty. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for YOU, my readers. To the ladies who consistently comment on each post and interact with me daily on Instagram, you have a special place in my heart. Your words lift me up and I always look forward to every single comment you leave. Even when I don’t always have the time to reply back on Instagram, know that your sweet words are taken to heart. To the beauties who have sent me e-mails , snap-chats, and/or tweets, telling me how much you like the blog, you are the very ones who encourage me to keep going. It has only been a few short months since I officially launched my blog (July 2015 to be exact) and the friendships that have come out of these last few months have already developed into what I know, will be life-long friendships. Again, thank you! You have no idea how much I appreciate you!
To My Instagram Followers:
For those of you who do not know, I watch my sister’s kids along with my own baby girl. My life is filled with diapers, spit-up, and tears for the next few years and yes, it is all worth it. With that being said, it can be difficult to find the time to blog. But even more so, I find it very difficultly to keep up with Instagram. IG has become the most important tool for bloggers, and I regret not being able to always reply to each and every comment I receive. IG has also made this difficult for me to keep up by putting strict security on how many comments or tags you can post within so many minutes. Seriously, this update gets on my last nerve. When I finally have the time to sit and reply to each one of you, it blocks me temporarily from commenting. I know I am not the only on going through this because I have seen some of my fellow bloggers apologize for this same reason. There are days when I feel like I am disappointing you all because I am not saying ‘Thank You’ to each of your beautiful comments, but know that I am truly thankful and I am not ignoring you.
To My Sponsors:
Last night, I sat down and wrote a list of each company I have worked with in the last few months and those who have sponsored this blog. I had also received the most emails this last week of small business who want to collaborate with A Courageous Beauty. I added these names to the list and started counting….I sat in awe of the many shops, boutiques, and sites who see potential in this blog and trust in it enough to even give me the time of day. I am so grateful for each and everyone of you! What a privilege it is to brand rep for so many amazing companies! You are the reason why I can be what I am, a full time fashion blogger!
To My Daughter:
Without her, A Courageous Beauty probably wouldn’t have even come into existence. I named this blog after Bravely Belle, who’s name means Courageous Beauty. I started this blog to help women find their courage, strength, and confidence with their inner and natural beauty. This blog is also meant to help myself become The Courageous Beauty that my daughter needs me to be. To be one who is brave with her love, her faith, and her hopes and dreams. Together, let us strive to live strong, courageous lives.
YOU ARE A COURAGEOUS BEAUTY!
You ALL make this possible! So thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I am incredibly blessed by you! May you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
