    The felt flower headband & the photos turned out great- though I have to admit, the floral bun wrap is now on my radar šŸ˜‰ So exciting to have your book sent out for reviews! And I hope your move goes well and you can enjoy the long weekend!

    Happy Friday! How amazing that you have a book! Definitely going to be following along and would love to read your book! I absolutely love writing and have written several drafts that I can never quite finish, but that's my goal for this year. Kudos to you! xo

    I'm so proud of your huge dream and accomplishment! It takes courage to put yourself out there, and you're doing it. PS: that boho bun wrap is ridiculously cute. I spy a purchase in the future!

    I think one of the hardest things about being a writer is being open to feedback. Your work is just so personal and you spend hours pouring yourself into every word trying to make sure it's perfect. Now, some people will be jerks just to be jerks to you. But I really think other times if someone gives you feedback it's because they only want to make you better.

    Have a great weekend!

    You are so cute! I hope your move goes well and congrats on sending out your book to 58 people! I love 3 day weekends. We are headed to the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado for some camping, outdoor living and hiking.

    Happy To Be Alive, Because sounds incredible and that's amazing that you wrote a book! I just added it to my Goodreads to-read shelf. I'm planning to order one of those flower headbands very soon, too. They're so adorable šŸ™‚

    I'm a people pleaser so I definitely struggle with #4 too, it's really brave of you to put yourself out there and go after what you want – congratulations on the new place and getting your book out!

    #2 is AMAZING. I hope to be there one day. #4…yeah, the part I am already dreading if I do ever get published. It is scary to be that vulnerable. A book is so personal! And not everyone could do what you are doing. You are so brave. I think only good things will come of it. I bet when the reviews do come out, you will be pleasantly surprised. Anyway, I'm impressed. šŸ™‚ Also, I would love to read it.

    That's an amazing accomplishment! You should feel proud of yourself for chasing your dreams no matter the outcome. I will pray for good reviews! And just remember not to take criticism personally. Everyone has their own tastes, just like your quote above. You can't be for everyone and that does not make your worth any less!

    I don't comment often, but I thought today would be a good day to tell you your blog is lovely, and I enjoy reading every post. I hope all the bloggers love your book and that the move is going smoothly!

    First of all, I have to tell you- I love visiting your blog. You radiate joy, positivity and sweetness – through your words and sharing your thoughts with all of us. Thank you!!!! Secondly, I have not finished your book yet (I am a slow reader with not enough time, I tell ya!) but I *love* what I have read so far. And that's the truth. So you have at least ONE reader (and I'm sure many more) who is enjoying your book! So excited for your tour, Chelsea!!!
