Today we celebrate the 14th anniversary of a blog that was born out of feeling stuck, on the fence, alone, confused, and wanting to create a space for women to get inspired, get off the fence, grow, succeed and thrive. 

September 11, 2009, I wrote my first blog post and I know I was home.

You have made that happen. I am grateful for this community who has stood by me in my darkest hours, my greatest triumphs, and given me a safe place to be my authentic myself. 

You have also helped each other, and inspired each other into action. 

Never underestimate the power of a few simple words on a page., now is a celebration of women, a resource for all women, and a community for all women to STAND BY EACH OTHER. 

Thank you for standing by each other. 

Thank you for standing by me. 

You have been my people for 14 years. 

I’m forever grateful.
