It is hard for me to believe that I have been blogging for almost 6 years!
I went to my very first blog conference, Blissdom, in February 2010. My sister went with me, and I was purely there to star-gaze. Yep. I was a bonified blog stalker.
I seriously remember peeking around corners trying to find my favorite bloggers and saying, “Is that _____?!!!!” in disbelief!
Cyndi didn’t attend the conference, but hung out in the Opryland Hotel with me. I would go back to our room and excitedly tell her all of the bloggers that I spotted, and some I even talked to!
One of those bloggers was Nester from The Nesting Place. She was the coolest blogger of them all because she didn’t even use her real name! We all called her Nester. It doesn’t get any cooler or mysterious than that, right?! I was wishing I could come up with some other name for me, but the “Beneather” just didn’t have the same ring to it. (insert sad face)
Nester has recently shared her real name, Myquillyn, on her blog, but I still like to call her Nester. :) And I know why she and her blog are loved by so many….it’s because it is real and relatable.
Nester is known for this quote, which is probably one of my most favorite….
I cannot tell you how many times I have said that! Especially when decorating my house.
Nester is great at seeing beauty in all things, even the messy, imperfect parts of our lives. Truthfully, she celebrates it! As we all should.
It is something we need to be reminded of daily. Thankfully, Nester recently published a book about it for all of us to enjoy. Not only is it full of great stories and inspiration, but it also looks A. MA. ZING. on a coffee table.
I have LOVED this book, and I know you will too!
