Friends, my Blogiversary Week has been such a good time! I’ve caught up with some old friends here on the blog, hosted some fun giveaways as a way to say “thank you,” and have felt overwhelmed by the positive messages I have received this past week. I’ve mentioned it a hundred times, but what’s truly incredible and I think a testament to the people in this city…is that I never really feel alone in this pursuit. Every single person I have reached out to over the past year for a collaboration has said “yes, absolutely” and every fellow blogger I have met has been open and more than eager to form this community. I could be wrong, but I don’t think you would find this same support system in a big city. When I am tired after working all day and just want to go home and veg in front of the TV, I can think of a dozen other ladies I know – all at home, tired and stressed – but working on their passion and building the kind of life they want. That’s what inspires me to keep doing this every day. I’ve noticed that a lot of blogger have what we call a “blogger bestie.” They are friends, share each other posts, travel together, etc. For me, Ashley at Afternoon Espresso has been the best blogger bestie I could ask for. Though she’s building her own site, she has never hesitated to include me in things or to give me advice or answer my questions. I am truly grateful.
Ok – so I said no more sappy after my last post! So today I wanted to share a totally fun and festive look – perfect if you still have some holiday parties to attend this weekend! Hope you all have an awesome weekend and take some “Elfie Selfies!”
