Happy Blog-iversary !

09 July 2012

Today marks one year since my first post. let me share with you how i went from a thirty-something Texas gal living in the south bored out of her mind, to one of the best decisions i've ever made. at the time my husband was on deployment and i was home alone with nothing to do. i was browsing Lucky Magazine's website and came across a picture of  the wonderful Emily Schuman and under her picture it had her website. i had NO clue what a style blog was. then i pulled up Cupcakes and Cashmere ... needless to say i was in awe of her website. as i stalked her blog i found other bloggers such as Lucy Laucht , Sterling Style, and Rockstar Diaries. Lets just say that day changed my life. i had something to come home to every day - waiting to see what they would wear next. i was inspired to push myself to the limit - style wise. finding these ladies made me feel so comfortable being me - i wasn't alone. even though i didn't know them i felt conected to them. after a couple of months i started to think "what if i started my own style blog?" as i danced around this idea for a couple more months i finally asked my bestfriend /my older brother Richard. his response was what sealed the deal...a simple "heck yea that would be awesome" was all i needed. using a Sony digital camera perched on top of my garden shoes i took my first outfit pics {first outfit post} . i remember feeling so uncomfortable standing there in this outfit.  now a year later... i take pictures of everything, i never leave home without my DSLR and i have so much more confidence than a year ago. this blog has changed my style. i am no longer afraid of being me, and i never thought anyone would visit my blog let alone follow my blog. I have met some great ladies and i am excited for what year two will bring . Thank you to everyone who visits, follows, and comments. you have no idea how excited i get everyday to read your comments.
