A Look Back - From Foothills To Fog Turns One!

recipe and image found here

Good morning friends! Happy Friday!

Tomorrow marks one year since I started this little blog! It seems impossible that a year has already flown by. It's so fun to look back at all the amazing things that have happened in the past year, especially because this blog has become a scrapbook, documenting all the adventures we've had.

Consistently blogging, creating new content and learning more about photography, has been the highlight of the year for me. It is the creative outlet I've always been looking for, and has been the perfect hobby for me. I love that I have this place of my own where I can share my thoughts, recipes, style, and DIY projects.

Mostly, I am really proud of myself for pursuing my dream to start a blog. If you've known me for any length of time, you remember years ago when all I talked about was blogs. Before most people even knew what a blog was. I have always been captivated by the blog world. I love reading what people have to say about everything from weddings, fashion, interior design, to motherhood. I love listening to fellow bloggers share their experiences, there is always something I can relate to, or learn from. It's an amazing community that I'm so happy I get to be a part of.

But the greatest thing has been connecting with you. I can still hardly believe that I have readers from all over the world, and that people actually take time out of their day to comment and email me. I've made some wonderful friends through blogging that I talk to all the time. Some might think that it's strange, meeting friends online, but this blog helped me connect with some amazing girls that I would never have met otherwise. And I'm so thankful to call them my friends.

To celebrate my first year of blogging, I thought it would be fun to look back at my favorite posts from the past year. In the beginning, it was basically just my family and close friends reading, so some of these posts might even be new to you! And, I have a little gift for all of your support!

In order to properly celebrate my first year of blogging, I want to thank all of you for being loyal readers and supporting From Foothills to Fog. And what better way to say thank you, than with a gift?! So today, I am hosting my first giveaway in honor of this milestone, and giving one lucky reader a $25 gift card to Nordstrom!

I'll announce the winner next Friday! Good luck, thanks for all your support!

I'm so excited for the future of this blog, I have so many ideas and can't wait to see how it grows in the coming year.

THANK YOU so very much for reading, it means the world to me!

  9. Congrats on the first year of blogging. I too followed blogs for years and talked about them and my friends always looked at me kind of weird wondering about my obsession. I finally took the leap this past year myself. I love the blogging world and have enjoyed it as well. I have really enjoyed following your blog and always excited when I see a new post. Your blog has really taken off and I'm so happy for you!
