HI! It’s Erin.

I’m super fired up today. Get ready for some major realness / epiphanies / stuff that will maaaybe change your life.

Okay, so the past few months have been massively transformational for me. Not easy, holy shit not easy at ALL. It wasn’t what I expected, but I’ll talk about that specific part in the future. What I really want to talk to you guys about is this realization that I’ve recently had that I think has been the biggest block in my happiness in every single area of my life.

Today is a day that everyone makes a point to be grateful – after all, it’s Thanksgiving! It’s a day to let your loved ones know you love them, text the friends you haven’t talked to in months, think about the things you love in your life, and say ‘thanks’ before you chow down on a (huge) amount of food. It’s a great holiday; honestly, I’m a sucker for any holiday that heavily revolves around food and allows me to wear something that I may or may not have purchased in the Target maternity section (the dresses are cute and roomy,
