Thank you for the Blog Awards

I entered the Osprey hotel on Saturday night, my stomach was doing summersaults. I was excited for the night ahead, about meeting people I knew but had never met, excited about not having a clue what to expect from the night. For anyone who knows me you won't be shocked to hear I was excited about dinner!! 

I was up for the Best Video Blog and it wasn't until I entered the award room that it dawned on me that this was a big moment! My mam rang me the night before to make sure I didn't forget to thank her when I was accepting my award and I laughed her off the phone. 

The category I was in was literally one of the last to be announced and boy with each passing category being announced the butterflys in my stomach which began as a flutter where buzzing around like mad! My partner kept squeezing my hand and saying " You have it, you are amazing". When I saw my blog/youtube name appear on the screen I thought to myself , wouldn't it be AMAZING if I won. Within seconds the moment was over. My name was not called out.

Even though I didn't win, you know what? I spent the whole night smiling and laughing with great people. I made new friends. I had phenomenal support from the early nomination stages up until the moment I sat down for dinner on the night. I can't believe the wonderful support I received. If I could give you all a big hug I would.  

Making it as far as I did, I still can't believe it. I'm excited about the future. I'm excited about my future blogging. I am so grateful for all the wonderful friends I have made along the way. 

I have my certificate framed and sitting on my desk to remind me that as amazing as it would have been to win I don't need an award to know that I am apart of something wonderful.

I love being a blogger/vlogger.

Thank YOU for taking the time to read my blog and to watch my videos.
