Cheers to My First Year of Blogging!

My “blogiversary” was on December 24th and a lot of emotions came with that. I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone and how many incredible connections I’ve made with the COOLEST PEOPLE EVER.

I don’t have much wisdom to share right now, or a list of things I wish I had known. A lot of what I learned is from trial and error, and really required a full year to experience and execute. There is no one article that helped me most or one piece of advice that I live by.

Although I am somewhat embarrassed to bring it up, here is my first post. It was short and only included one photo, because I really wanted to get myself out there and START something. I was out of excuses, and I could have put it off forever.

I posted my What a Year! recap of 2016, and shortly thereafter starting posting some outfit photos. Wow they were horrible. I started out taking a lot of my own photos with my iphone attached to a tripod, and a bluetooth shutter I clicked with my hand. Here and here are some particularly bad ones, haha. I will never delete them or be ashamed, because everyone starts somewhere. I’m thrilled to see how far I have come, and I hope that a blogger who is just starting out will go to my archives and see that I embraced the suck. I went ugly, but I went.

So this year has been about finding myself and figuring out what I truly love. One of those things is clearly styling, as I dream of putting together outfits all day.

Thank you for following me and supporting my dreams. They weren’t joking when they said that “time flies when you’re having fun.”

    So cool to look back on your early posts! It’s so true that you have to start somewhere… if you waited to start until it was perfected, you would never have made your first post! Sometime it is good to just leap 🙂
