My Face Hurts

From smiling, that is! 😀 Have you ever gotten a compliment that just makes you feel like a million bucks? Well, I do.

I’m sure many of you know of the wonderful blog, Then Heather Said. It’s one of my favorites and after reading Heather’s blog for the first time I felt like she was someone I’d want to be friends with – you know what I mean?

Well, a few weeks ago Heather had written her 500th post and she gave readers wonderful ideas to celebrate such a monumental event 🙂 She said she enjoys reading stories, so one of her suggestions for celebration was to send her your own story.

So I did. This is not something I’d normally do, but because I’m trying to step outside of my box every once in while and because I think Heather is so cool, I figured “why the hell not?”

I was giddy when Heather emailed me back saying that she enjoyed my story and my blog. But I squealed out loud when she emailed me back a second time asking if she could use my story as a guest post of sorts on her own blog. Can you believe that?! 😀 If you have time, go check it out and let me know what you think. I feel a little nervous (and way excited), but I hope some people enjoy it.

I was at a 21st birthday party last night, so I didn’t drive home – if you catch my drift 😉 but I’ll be posting pictures and a recap later this afternoon!

Most importantly, thank you to Heather for enjoying my story enough to put out there on your blog. It’s such a huge compliment! I’m just so excited that I can’t stop smiling 🙂

Questions – If you read it, what’d ya think? What’s the last compliment you received that made your day?
