Y’all, it’s been five years since my first post. I honestly cannot believe it’s been that long.
I have really enjoyed writing and posting. Posting here grounds me and holds me accountable and definitely feels like therapy. I appreciate everyone who reads, comments and especially those of you who have been here from the beginning! Reading back to posts from years ago is so cringey – what was I doing?!
Thank you for all for the advice, comments, emails, tweets and especially for all of the call outs! I still have so much I want to work on, but any growth I’ve experienced is a direct reflection of keeping this blog. Y’all have literally helped shape who I am which is wild.
Cheers! I love you guys!

Yahoo!!!! 💕 You’ve always been a great person, and who you are now is so beautiful!
Reading your blog has been a highlight of the past 5 years for me. Thank you for letting me have a glimpse into your life. I adore you, Reese!
What she said!!
This is so sweet! Holy cow! I started reading your blog literally at the first post back when I was just graduating high school. I was literally thinking the other day I’m almost how old you were when you started it. Thank you for sharing so much! And we better get a brady/baby update soon!
Love your blog!! Been reading for years 🙂 Thank you for sharing your life with us!
I’ve never commented before but had to give you a shout out. Congrats on 5 years! I truly enjoy reading your blog and look forward to your posts ❤
I have followed from the beginning but recently experienced a lull at work and reread your whole blog… you have grown so so much and your relationship with Brady has come so far. You should be so proud.
I always look forward to reading your posts over the past 5 years and am a little embarrassed to say how much I’m invested in your life lol. Legit cannot believe how fast it’s flown by.
I can’t believe it’s been 5 years! I started at the beginning and love love love your stories and updates! You’ve provided me insight and courage to look at my own life and how I show up for it. And I love how effing tough you are! Hope to tag along for another 5 🙂 And congrats on the baby!
Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your life with all of us!
Wow, congrats on five years! Have been reading since the beginning and have even gone back and re-read from the beginning a couple of times during your breaks! Keep up the great work!
I’ve been following you for five years? Wow. Feels like we should meet, but you’d need to come to Hong Kong or me to NYC for that.. haha
You seem so happy now and that’s amazing. I keep wondering if I should start a blog seeing as my dating life is literally like a tv sit com..
Lots of ❤
Please start a blog! Where are you from? America, China, somewhere else?
I agree with Sabrina.
please do! I think we’d all love to read all about it
Seems like so much less, amazing to think you have been a part of so many of our lives for 5 years. In that time finished law school, passed the bar, moved to Germany and gone through two breakups lol!! Please please please dont stop writing, but it is also understandable that eventually you will have less and less time. In any event I wish you all the very best with your baby, and Brady and Tucker – and thank you for having shared your life with us, it has brightened up my day on many occasions! Lots of love xxx!!
You’re practically the only one left! I have a folder in my quick links here at work with all of my story short cuts… there are close to 20 story blogs in there. It’s a wonder I ever got anything done at work! lol
Would you mind sharing some of the blogs even if they are finished now? I’ve been trying to find some to read in my free time!
