Top 9

I started late in 2018, but this project has still managed to top my list of what I’m grateful for about this past year. It has truly been a blessing to have the space to focus on creating and to receive encouragement from all of you (to the tune of 8.5k likes, at that!). It may sound cheesy, but truly every like and comment has landed straight in my heart. Thank you, thank you for the gift of a slice of your time. I will continue to try to earn it in the coming year. You have already given me more than you can know.
