One Year Of Blogging!

Skirt, borrowed from Ashlyn | Top, Zara [Similar] | Marc Jacobs Sunglass | Zara Heels | Kate Spade NY Watch 

Exactly one year ago today I sat at my laptop in my new little studio apartment contemplating if I should hit the publish button - I almost didn't, and boy am I sure glad I did. [You can click HERE to read that post.] I had spent the weekend (like many before) by myself, exploring the city, but this time I had pulled out my camera and sat down to google "how to make a blog".

It's amazing all that can happen in a year. This time around I spent the same weekend with two amazing friends that I would have never met had I decided not to push publish. It was a weekend filled with collaborating, good meals together, attending events, and of course shopping. A year ago I had about forty some Instagram followers, today that number is over 2,500 which blows my mind. It is amazing how many people I have connected with, share passions with, and learn from. It's amazing how many people want to read what I have to say as well. 

The photos that go along with this post are an homage to everything that started this blog. The skirt (borrowed from Ashlyn - thank you!) is a tribute to Carrie Bradshaw and her infamous opening credits outfit. Without Sex & the City this blog wouldn't have a name. The pink peonies, are a throwback to this very first "real" post I announced. 

It is incredible how the words that started this blog a year ago still ring so true...

"Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." - Carrie Bradshaw (Sex & The City, Season 6 "An American Girl in Paris: Part Deux")

This blog has opened me up to new and exotic things, brought up lots of questions, taken me many unexpected places, brought me back to old familiar places, and most importantly taught me so much about myself. And that of course, is just fabulous

I want to thank each and every one of you who reads, comments, likes, follows, and more. Connecting with you all is the main driving point behind this blog. Be sure to check back tomorrow. I am going to be doing a little giveaway with some of my favorite things as a very small way to say thank you.
