Today is my Birthday, and even though I am one year older, I am pretty excited about it. I have so many fun things planned starting with a big dinner tonight, how could I not be stoked to start my Birthday week? (Yep, I get a whole week.)
Birthdays are a funny thing – some people love them (me) and others not so much. But regardless whether you are a fan, in my mind a Birthday still acts as a marker and a reminder to show us how far we’ve come from the previous year. In just a few months, this blog will turn five. FIVE. That is incredible to me, especially because when I started it, I had absolutely no idea what would happen. No real plan. To look back to 2008 when I started all of this is fun, because I remember what I was doing, where I was working, who I was spending time with and even what I was wearing.
I am now in such a different place and feel so very lucky to be here. I definitely didn’t think or even know it would introduce me into such an amazing, supportive and creative community and for that I feel so very lucky. But, with that said, I think it is always important to look back to where you started from to appreciate the beginning stages, the growth that took place, and most importantly, those who believed in you from the get go. My parents, family and friends have been unbelievably supportive and without them, I don’t know where I would be. All of you have have also made so much of this possible, and I can’t thank you guys enough for sticking with me and continuing to come back to this blog everyday. It means the world to me, so thank you.
With that said, I celebrate yet another year of turner older and hopefully wiser. I look forward to diving head first into whatever the next 12 months have in store for me even though I really have no clue. But I have a good feeling it’s going to be a fun ride. xo
