This week is a big milestone for me as it marks one year since I started this blog!! Thank you so much for following me through this journey of all things related to skincare and so many things that were not related to skincare, at all.
When I started this, I wanted to to be able share my knowledge with anyone that was interested in learning more about finding a healthier approach to taking care of their skin. In a world where there is so much misinformation, false advertising, unrealistic claims and unhealthy ingredients, my hope has been that this knowledge would help you make more informed choices and decisions when it comes to you skin's health. Please know that you can always reach out with any questions you might have about products (within my line and elsewhere), issues with your skin, or anything else related to caring for your skin's health.
As time went on, this blog has taken on a life of its own. I have taken a deeper dive into my personal life and shared my own experiences. I have been open and honest about the roller coaster ride that this year has been for myself and my industry. You have read stories about my family, creating healthy habits, ways to tweak your skincare routine, my successes (and failures) with my garden, and so much more. It has definitely been a therapeutic outlet for me. Your responses via emails, texts and calls have touched my heart and helped me to feel more connected. I am so grateful for this, so thank you.
When I sat down and read through all of the entries over the past year, I noticed that although the format has changed (the blog and newsletters are now two separate entities), the content has not. I have stayed true to myself, my heart, my passion and my truth and unbeknownst to me, I have been documenting a time in my life, and in history, that will not soon be forgotten.
Today's quote is one I have come across a few times this past year and is written by a woman I have the utmost respect and admiration for.
"If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you will look forward, do so prayerfully. But the wisest course would be to be present in the present gratefully."
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading.
With SO Much Gratitude-
