6 years ago today I started on a journey not knowing where it would lead me. That journey was this blog. I cannot tell you how nervous I was to hit publish on my first blog post or to expose myself on the internet for whoever may have anything negative to say about my work. But I did it and immediately it became my favorite thing to do and the feedback I received from readers was wonderful.
It started as just a hobby. Posting here or there, no lifelong plans of sharing my life with the world. Just a way to express myself creatively and connect with such amazing men and women from all over the world. It wasn’t until 3 years into blogging that I actually thought of it as a part-time job. To me, it was always just fun sharing what I know and what I purchased. I would see something cute at a store and grab it exclaiming “I have to share this on my blog!”
Fast forward 6 years and this blog is now a full-time business. (Say WHAT?!) I still can’t believe I get to say that because for so many years that is all I wanted to say. Sharing my insights, travel guides, and styling tips with all of you and getting to know you is a dream come true.
So thank you for all of your love and support over the years. Thank you for the emails and messages letting me know that something I shared made your day a bit brighter (or your wardrobe a bit more fabulous!) I cannot think of anything else in the world I’d rather be doing and I am truly blessed.
Happy Blogiversary, Laura Lily!
