It may be a little silly to celebrate something like blogging for a year, but there's no shame in my game. I'm proud that I have been able to stick with it and it's something that I am still passionate about - probably even more than before. Blogging is definitely not as easy as most people think. Though writing comes somewhat naturally to me, there is way more that goes into blogging than just writing the posts -- different topic, different day.

I started blogging for myself. It was always something I wanted to do, i just didn't have the confidence to get started. Thankfully, my amazing best friend gave me the push that I needed to dive in, and I'm forever grateful for that. 

I love writing, I love having something that's my own, and I love being able to express myself. I am an introvert through and through, but I have a voice here in this big 'ol blogosphere. 

I'm thankful to my friends and family who continue to read every post, whether it's a recipe they know they'll never make or a story about my day that they couldn't really care less about. It's nice to know that a handful of people will always have your back and support you, no matter what. 

I'm thankful for the friends I have made through blogging that I probably will never meet in person. There are days when I read their posts and think, 'are you talking about your life, or mine?' It's crazy how much I can relate to their stories. Who knew?

So here's to a wonderful year of blogging, and many more to come! Thank you all for your support ♥.
