It’s that time!! Where I pour on sentimental value that aligns with an extra thankful time of year. I got a notice today that I have 500 followers and I won’t lie-kinda split my pants. Not with anything gross, just excitement. Plant splitting excitement. I’m the kind of person who thinks small things are amazing. When I check my stats and see I’ve had 10 hits in a day I’m pretty sure my response is akin to getting 1,000. I’ve always been like this-excited by small things. My parents, who are reading this and who I’m extra extra thankful for (hi mom and dad, hope you’re reading this at the same time 5 feet from each other on your phones-oh yea and thanks for like…my life) can attest to this. Ever since I was a kid I’ve just had a low bar for “YAY!!!” So I’m thankful…to everyone who reads what I write, who doesn’t but hits the like button, who doesn’t do either of those but maybe thinks my cat picture is cute, or who just acknowledges in their brain that they’ve seen my blog go past their eyes. It all matters to me, I’m grateful for all of it. I’ll be thinking of something bigger than splitting my pants if I get 550 followers, even if they’re all spam. Thanks spam! Aaaaannndd in case you’re curious, my cat is still my favorite thing and I’m not always this annoyingly positive.
