ONE YEAR

You guessed it!

Today is my one year blogging anniversary!

I started blogging on December 30, 2013 as a way to communicate my interest in DIY projects and healthy living with family and friends that did not have a presence on social media. Over the course of the year I’ve realized that this little hobby of mine has proven to be a challenge; however, at the same time it’s been a rewarding and educational experience. I’m truly proud of myself for not giving up, and can only hope to see the blog grow in the coming years.

Thank You

I cannot thank you guys enough for reading my blog everyday. I couldn’t be more pleased with the responses I get from those that follow me via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, but please don’t be afraid to like and comment on the blog as well! I’d also like to thank all of my silent readers, I’m extending out an even bigger thanks to you!

And last but not least, I owe a huge thank you to Brett. Not only does he author all of the DIY post, but he also puts up with the crazy photo capturing gal that I am. I think I’ve embarrassed him more than enough times while dining in a nice restaurant, and also kept him from eating a warm meal or two at home due to a mini photo-shoot with our food. I love you bae!

Looking Back

One of my favorite parts about blogging is being able to relive moments of my life through my own writing. So, in honor of this special day I’d like to share my favorite post from each month of this past year!

Looking Forward

For starters, I’m hoping to dedicate myself to more than just one or two post a week. Since the DIY post seem to be more popular amongst the blog, I’m hoping to have Brett author more of those this coming year too. Another segment I’m hoping to introduce to the blog is weekly meal and workout plans. I promise to do my best, but please keep in mind that our wedding will be this year as well. I’ll try my best to stay on top of things, but the stress may get the better of me. Here is to another year of blogging!
