So, I have to tell y'all...I had a whole other blog post planned for today but I just could not get what was going on in in this little pea head of mine to translate on paper (or blogger).
So that post will have to wait till another day.

So instead let's chat about finding your voice.
your blogging voice.
and I think I am still finding mine actually.
Ever since this post and this one too, I truly feel like my writing and voice here on Virginia Sweet has been the most honest and true sense of myself yet. It feels good to not hold back and really use this blog as a platform to be as candid as I choose to be.
This new found voice is something that I work hard at. I feel silly admitting that to y'all but it is the honest truth. Do y'all know how hard it is to type just like you talk and not hold back? It's scary to put yourself out there to people who only know you through your blog.
There have been several times here on the blog where I had to put my big girl panties on and just hit the publish button. I was doubting myself. Doubting that I would come across wrong or silly. But the more I put myself out there, the more I learn that this type of exposure is what makes me relatable.
And if I have learned anything over the last year of blogging, it's that being relatable is one of the most important things. I try to be as genuine as I can and not sugar coat what my reality really looks like.
So here is my advice,
because clearly I am such an expert,
find your voice and stay true to who you are.
write like your talking to your bestie and remember to not over think things.
and that's all for me today.
I promise for more fun and frank convos next week.
Oh, and I gotta give shoutouts to my fav guest co hosts of Thoughts for Thursday link up, Stephanie at Newlyweds: North and Laura at Happily Ever Parker
