One year ago, I was laid off from my job.

In the days that followed, I was shocked, and angry, and sad, and confused (though much of that could have been the Prosecco talking). But I soon learned that what I was actually given was an opportunity, an opportunity to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with my life, what would be truly gratifying for me, what would make me happy.

Fortunately, that soul-searching didn't take long. What followed was an incredible year, and a life I can now call fulfilled, balanced, and completely my own. I'm living proof that setbacks can lead to good things — and sometimes, even better things! — if you let them.

Many, many thanks to those of you who've supported me, especially over the past year, when I was trying to get this bird off the ground. And big love to the writers and illustrators who allow me the honor of working with them every day. I am truly blessed, and I wouldn't change a step of the journey that led me here.

Tweet regards,
