WELL. I can’t believe it. I woke up to 20K on Instagram this morning! I don’t know why but that’s always a number I had as a goal. To be honest it feels like a long time coming. I know people who have been blogging the same or shorter than I have and have WAY more followers than I do. But I also know that a lot of them did things like buy followers or likes to get where they are at today, and I never wanted to do that. And if I just even have 20 people that really love my blog and read it, then that’s just fine with me. Because at the end of the day, I don’t care about numbers, I care about real people who hopefully come to my blog because they genuinely love it.
To all of my wonderful followers:
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I know you guys might not think much of just pressing that little follow button on Instagram or clicking a link to come here to my blog to read a post, but I cannot tell you how much it means to me! This little blog is my baby, and you guys have helped it grow into something I’m proud of so thank you.
If this is your first time to my blog, I hope that stay a while and see that life is more than just about clothes. It’s about relationships and healthy living and most importantly loving Jesus. I’m very open about my faith here, and the reason is because my number one reason for starting this blog is that I want girls everywhere, including you, to know that you are valuable and important. If you can just catch the tiniest glimpse of that, then everything I’ve poured into my blog is worth it.
People have just taken to calling me Moxie these days, and a lot of you might think I called my blog that because it’s my nickname. But it’s not. I actually just thought it was a cool word, and then when I looked up the meaning, I just knew that’s what I would call my blog. Moxie means “force of character, determination or nerve”. And I feel like that’s what it took for me to start my blog. And that’s how I want to live my life. With “moxie.” I hope that you too pursue your dreams and aspirations with moxie. To not be afraid to just be who you are, unashamedly. Because that’s who God made you to be, and if God says it’s good, you better believe it is.
Thank you for giving me a place to share my heart, to hopefully provide a few laughs and some dang good deals on some cute clothes. 😛
Also a very very very special thank you to my number one fan and supporter, my hubby, Ben. He has taken countless outfit shoots even when he doesn’t want to, encouraged me endlessly, approved one too many Instagram photos before they go to post, and read every single one of my blog posts. I can’t even begin to thank you enough, Babe!
And to any of you who have helped me take my photos when Ben wasn’t around, THANK YOU. (Gem, Alena, Jed, Kate, Carly, Sister, Bee!)
Here’s to many more late nights, early mornings and endless cups of coffee and laughter here on Moxie.
P.S. This top is my new fave and only $16. Buy it and let’s twin, mmmk?
