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!
