1 year young

One year ago today I started my blog, and I clearly had no idea what I was doing. But, being able to blog has been such an amazing release for me. It has brought me so much joy and inspiration from many different angles, and I never thought that one year later, I would still be at it and loving it.

I had no expectations, nothing was thought through. In the beginning, I read Cupcakes and Cashmere, Live Creating Yourself, Breakfast at Toast, and Makeunder My Life and I just loved them. I loved how these girls could make their everyday lives so interesting and engaging, and enjoyed their perspectives on food, fashion, fitness, home interiors and personal intentions (and now I can't even say how many amazing blogs I have found in a year!). I wanted to have a space to try to see what I could offer.

In the beginning, I wanted to mold myself to what I saw on other blogs. I loved what they did, and sometimes, yes I still stay in my mold, but I've branched out so much more. Everything you see here is really me. I'm focusing on giving more of little bits of daily brightness from my life, in all different areas, and seeking new inspiration for my life and yours. It's been so great so far and I'm excited to keep up my journey.

I cannot tell you how much it means to me that people return to my blog, or even visit just once. I never thought that people would want to read what I had to say, and I'm so happy that people have come back and given their input. Your comments mean so much to me, seriously, every time I get an email I smile (and I so apologize if I don't answer every one. Life happens sometimes!). It's been such a great way to meet people from all over the country--heck even other countries! Who has the opportunity to do that! Bloggers, that's who! I'm so happy that I've gotten this chance to do this, it's been a big blessing this year.

So here's to another year of Sunshine! Thank you so much for sticking with me, it means more than you all know.
