Wouldn’t it be great if we could all do what we love and get paid?

I love my blog. I would love if I got paid doing this thing I love, sharing these stories. When I’m really lucky and all the stars align, I may partner with a brand for cash, merchandise, food, event tickets, or other goodies. . If I feel that something isn’t a good fit or I can’t be honest or it’s not a product or service I’d want or want to click on, I won’t accept. Because more than getting paid, I want to have an honest blog that represents me.

I will always disclose affiliate links so that you are aware of the relationship.
