I’ve been struggling a little bit over the last few weeks with juggling my day job, House of Earnest, freelance projects, and the new adventure, but when I was in the farmer’s market this weekend, I saw a card with this quotation. I just realized that this is a ‘bootstraps’ sort of situation.  I can choose whether I’ll be brought down by the crazy, or inspired to fight, try, work harder.

It was last night when I hit one million total pageviews (eeek) for the blog and got my state of Ohio business registration for the new adventure (double eeek) that I realized that this is a great place to be, maybe hard, but great.  And I only have you guys to thank.

So, thank you for reading the blog, passing it onto your friends, chatting us up on twitter, Facebook, instagram and what have you. Thank you for coming back each day to see what contraption I’ve created or project I’m sharing.  Thank you!  I certainly don’t think I’m a legend yet, but boy, is it something to aspire to!

Have a wonderful Tuesday out there!
