Well this was an easy week to say the least! Monday off and Tuesday was a SNOW DAY! Even though one of my Tuesday/Thursday classes was already canceled for the week, having Tuesday completely off as a snow day still gave me that little kid glee! It’s weird having a “snow day” in college, but when the Feds shut down, so does everything in DC. You should have seen some of the southern and international kids on our class of 2018’s Facebook group. They were freaking out about the impending “snowpocolypse”. They needed to take a chill pill 😉 This week was pretty good though, but boring. When you have no more work to get done, the days can drag (which also means there are a tons of links to click this week!). But I’m happy for multiple reasons and you’ll read why at the bottom of the post!

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ If your my personal friend on Facebook, you saw when I posted that I am a finalist in this year’s Blogger Of The Year Awards hosted by the Build Your Blog Conference. It’s a big deal and I am so excited and honored! I really couldn’t believe it! They announce the top winner of each the 5 categories on Saturday night during the ending gala at the conference being held in Salt Lake City, Utah (I’m in the Best newcomer category). Obviously I couldn’t attend, but I am beyond words right now and really appreciate everyone’s love and support for Strength and Sunshine!
+ Have you ever walked in DC after a snow storm? Wednesday when I went to my 8 o’clock class, the city was even more empty and quiet than usual. It was eerie, but so peaceful. Everything was so still. It was actually a beautiful moment to expereince!
So tell me:
+ Have you ever been to a blog conference? Well now I really wan to go to BYBC next year!
+ Is the cold killing you? Yes…these last couple of weeks have been terrible and such a shock to the system! It was 6o-some degrees a few weeks ago one day, now it’s -374628347!
