February is an exciting month as it marks the one year anniversary of The Gallivant! Read our first post here, and a little more about the inspiration behind the blog here. Over the course of the past year of blogging The Gallivant has grown in ways I never expected and opened so many doors that I could not have foreseen--I feel very blessed. We have chronicled our first year of marriage and numerous adventures all over the country, and this blog has been a place for me to share about our journey through flight school so far, as well as encouraged me to fully immerse myself in all that Pensacola and the Gulf Coast have to offer. It has started numerous rich conversations, allowed me to reconnect with old friends, and start new friendships. It has helped me to start a dialogue with other military wives, and pushed me, overall, to be more transparent with my life.
I want to take today to say thank you to you--my dear readers. Every comment, email, and text has encouraged me in ways that you can't even imagine. It is hard to describe, but blogging can sometimes feel as though you are "shouting into the void," and it is so comforting and encouraging to know that there are people out there who are reading and engaging. Your support is what spurs me on. There are a lot of fantastic blogs out there, a lot of amazing and smart people doing incredible things, and the fact that you choose to spend some of your precious time here in this little corner of the web means the world. I am not a perfect blogger, I am not always consistent or timely, but I will keep striving, always, for authenticity versus perfection.
It is my prayer that the Gallivant would continue to grow, (and thank you for sharing), but that it would always and ultimately point to The One who created and inspired first and most of all.
Happy Monday Friends, and thank you again.
