Aging Expectations

Would You?

Dear Gentle Reader,

Would you be my Valentine? Why you? Because you’re awesome! And, I’m not just saying that…

You see, my dream since I was a little girl (trying make straight hair curly), is to write. Through the years, my career path didn’t necessarily always put me on that path. Of course, whenever I could write for business purposes, I would and I did a pretty good job.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t the true kind of writing I wanted to do. Don’t get me wrong, I still liked it and appreciated it. I just never fully pursued writing the way I wanted.


Why? Why? Why?

Here’s why…I was afraid.

Afraid of rejection.

Afraid of failure.

Afraid of not being perfect.

Afraid of my shadow (okay, not really that one but I think you get the point).

This blog has helped me get past that fear. Not entirely but a lot! I mean I’ve published a family travel tip book (no pressure but you should check it out, especially since we’re Valentines and all).

The point is, I couldn’t have gotten this far without you. Oh, I know you probably don’t visit everyday and you don’t comment nearly as often as I’d, I mean…you’d like but you do visit. Feel free to do it more (really, I’m okay with it).

You’re here now and that’s all that matters.

I appreciate your support and for that
I want you to be my Valentine!



  1. I’ll be your Valentine! xoxoxo

    I love reading your blog! Good for you for pursuing your dream! Isn’t life much better when you’re doing something you love?!?!?

  2. I love it and love you! Thanks for inspiring and continually living your dream! This is definitely a day for more than just chocolates and flowers, it’s a day of recognition as you have said here! Happy Valentine’s Day!
