Welcome to Becoming You!! I am beyond thrilled that you are here and reading my very first blog post EVAH!!! Eeeeeeek!!!!….ok so that's me being completely and utterly ecstatic and nervous all at the same time! I never thought in a million years that i would be a “blogger” and I’m not making any promises to be any good at it either!! I should actually probably preface this all by saying that although i am college educated, i am by no means a “writer” and my grammar is quite horrendous! But I’m gonna take this huge leap of faith and try to take this all one step at a time! So, once again, Welcome!! My goal with this blog is just to have a way to reach out to more women and girls!! I’d love to have a place where i can give you an inside scoop...share fashion tips, update you all on new trends, give you some words of encouragement, offer some deals and freebies, and i might even throw in some random tidbits about me and some of my story from time to time! And to be brutally honestly, I don’t really care how many “followers” i have in the future…i just hope and pray that i touch the exact person Im supposed to at that time! I have learned a TON through my training and Im so excited to share that with whomever God puts in my path! And i promise to be real with you and just be ME!! I just hope and pray that God can use me…even if its in the teeniest-tinyest way…to have a positive impact on your life and be a part of your journey to Becoming You!
