So, for anyone who has been following my “social media journey”, you will know that it started off very slowly… like, five years ago when I created this blog up. However, it really ramped up about 7 months ago, when I revitalized both this blog and my Instagram account.
Growing on Instagram has been extremely rewarding – and also challenging – in so many different ways. Truthfully, that is probably a blog post in and of itself! However, one of the coolest things about growing on IG has been the many connections I have made with women all around the world.
They say the first man in every girl’s life is her father, and for me, this was certainly true.
I was blessed with a good father. It’s not just that he provided for our family and created a safe home for me to grow up in where all of my needs were met. Although I’m certainly grateful for those things, because I know they aren’t necessarily a given for every child – it was so much more.
I have one of those “tough love, soft place to land, number one fan, you-can-do-anything, play on the floor, ice cream for breakfast” kind of dads. My dad was truly the most important person in my world, and growing up I could hardly imagine a scenario in which he wouldn’t know exactly what to do. Let’s just be honest, I still have trouble imagining it.
