Thank You. Just Thank You.

Something I just randomly wrote, while starting work on another post/article.

It’s the collected thoughts of the last six months of my life.  I came out of a life-changing decision (well, for me, it was life changing, but any time you close the door on something, it’s usually the result of a huge decision) and made the choice to keep going with something I love, while living through experiences I wanted to have.  Six months ago, on the heels of my life-changing decision I made (and a life-changing event that happened right after), I almost gave up on something I love.  Not that the well ran dry, but I just wasn’t sure I wanted to keep writing.  This is the result of six months of making the decision to keep going with writing, and the experiences I’ve been lucky enough to have over the last six months.  It’s a reflection of sorts.

I hope you like it, because it’s for you.  All of you.

#ThrowbackThursday – This Night Calls for Lowenbrau!

Dancing, singing, and beer.

Based on what I covered last week on Flashback Friday, and what I’m covering in today’s Throwback Thursday post, you’d think I was an alcoholic with twinkle toes.

Who said I wasn’t twinkle toes?  Because I’m not an alcoholic.
