One Year!!

posted on: Friday, June 17, 2011

Today is my blogs ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! I can't believe that I've already been blogging for one year. It was fitting that my anniversary post outfit photos were taken in the rain because in my first outfit post it was also raining. 

So far, blogging has taken me on a journey that I could not have imagined. I've met so many amazing people in the blogosphere and in real life that I wouldn't have met otherwise. Blogging has also opened up the local Calgary fashion world to me and has allowed me to share it with all of you. I can't wait to see what my next year in blogging will bring. 
My mom gave me some of my old journals the other day from when I was 12 years old. I thought I would share some quotes that I thought were kind of funny. 

"Yesterday I went shopping for FIVE HOURS! All I bought was some perfume, popcorn and a mother's day present"

"Over the weekend my cousin came over and we went SHOPPING! My cousin fell in love with this pretty scarf, and we figured out how to wear it 10 different ways!"

"I finally found my green pen. It was in my backpack. My backpack is kind of like my room. A total Mess. Daisy says she can explore my room forever. She could probably explore my backpack forever too!"

"Nothing special happened today. Practically the same as yesterday. Except I learned how to juggle"

After looking back on these old journals I feel like my blog is somewhat of an extension of those journals. I love that with blogging though there are photos to help tell the story, and a community of readers to interact with.
