Over 540 blog posts and a little under 3 years ago, I began The sTORIbook. It started as a fulfillment of a dream that I had for many years. The beginning stages were me mostly just talking about the new adventure of motherhood and gently testing the waters of blogging.

3 years later it has grown into something I would have never imagined. Over the past few days I have been overwhelmed with amazement and gratitude. Never in a million years would I have ever thought that this little dream of mine would have grown into what it is today. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would have the opportunity to work with brands such as Nordstrom, Target and Kodak. And NEVER in a million years would I ever think that one day I would receive the opportunity for a phenomenal company such as Microsoft to fly me to Seattle to visit their headquarters and learn more about this prestigious company.

How can I ever express my gratitude? To the Microsoft team…that completely rocked my socks off…thank you for including me!

To those of you who visit every day and have stood by me as my dream, not only became a reality, but grew into something that I could never have imagined….thank you!

Thank you. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.





I have lots more posts coming from my Microsoft trip! But as I download pictures and get organized I hope this is a good little kick-off for more to come!

    Your blog post today reminds me of a quote I Love. “It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy”. Reflecting on where we’ve come from brings perspective on where we are today and God’s wonderful blessings!! You certainly did that today with this post. Keep up the great work! Love you!!
