Needing Inspiration… by Meg Keene I’ve been feeling burned out and having a hard time writing lately, and today I got a wonderful email from a reader, it said: Dear Meg, I’ve never written a “Thank you!” email to a blog I love before, but…THANK YOU! I am getting married next September, and I am just so grateful for your inspiring posts in a land of Monique Lhullier-obsession! You don’t have to reply. I just wanted to say, Keep ’em coming. You have no idea how much fist-pumping your posts are being met with. Laura It made my day. Fist pumping, that’s something I can get on board with. Sometimes, I think, the best way to combat burn out is by being grateful. So, I wanted to say thank you to each one of you readers. Thanks for your wise comments, your kind emails, for sharing your amazing weddings with me, and for your general support. I read every single thing you send me, even though I’ve run out of time to respond to each one. Thanks for making me feel ok that the wedding industry en masse sometimes makes me want to stick a fork in my eye. Thanks for helping me trust my gut, even when it seems weird or different. Thanks for sticking with this little blog. And, if you’re feeling particularly generous today, I’d love it if you’d leave me something inspiring – a cool link, or something that’s giving you a spring in your step. It doesn’t have to be wedding related! Because I could use the inspiration. Meg Keene Founder & Editor-In-Chief Meg is the Founder and EIC of APW.
