Today, I want to thank you. For supporting me. For learning with me. For reading what I’ve been sharing over the years. As the year comes to an end, I’m reflecting on all that we have been through together. I mean, if you told me I’d come out as trans and live in a van this year last January? I’d ask how high you were, honestly.
But here we are. Changing.
In case you missed a post along the way and have a little bit of down time this week as work winds down, here are our top blogs of 2021 as determined by you: my people.
Cheers to you – and I hope to see you a few hundred more times next year.
