an alpha // whiskey // foxtrot anniversary …

It’s funny, but it occurred to me for the very first time today that in just a few weeks, alpha // whiskey // foxtrot will celebrate its one-year anniversary — and nobody’s more shocked about this than me.

I can still remember the first time I hit that little blue “Publish” button.  Back then, I was nervous, and a touch resistant to the sometimes self-promotional tone of blogging in general …  But I also knew that I was dissatisfied with certain areas of my life:

My town.  

My mistrust of others.

My own body.  

And I suspected that if I could find the beauty in those places and pin it down into words, then maybe — just maybe — I might actually be able to believe in it.

So that’s what I did.  I went searching for the beauty.  Translated it into photographs, and into the tiny black-and-white bars we call text.  

I did this over and over again — 175 posts and counting — and then I shared it with whoever was willing to read.

That’s courage.

In celebration of that courage, I’m introducing a new series:  Flashback.  And when I say “new” what I really mean is “old.”

Over the next three months, I’ll be re-posting some familiar favorites — mine and yours — on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (with new content in between).  You might think of it as a curated collection of the best of alpha // whiskey // foxtrot.

Here’s hoping that my oldest followers enjoy a little nostalgia with me, and my newer followers discover some special words for the first time.

Either way — I’m glad you’re here for the journey. ❤
