Somehow, my first anniversary of blogging snuck up on me a few days ago.
While I sit here at my desk writing this post, it's unbelievable how much my life has changed since I put together this little corner of the internet on (somewhat) of a whim last May. In a year, I've become a blogger, college student, intern, and big city tyro in the city of Boston. Blogging is like a scrapbook where I can document so many incredible adventures from snowball fights, to trips to NYC, sailing on the harbor, and beyond. It's become my own little happy place that allows me to flex my creative muscles and express my passions.
My blog came at just the right time when my life was in state of flux, during a transition of change between chapters. I've grown a lot since last May and since coming home from college, everyone has remarked that I'm not the same person I was last summer. I think a part of that has to do with blogging, because slowly but surely, I've found the confidence to express my inner voice with every blog post I write. Initially, it was incredibly frightening to create this blog. I kept it a secret for weeks and am pretty sure only my family read it for weeks. It was intimidating to wonder how people would judge me through my writing, style, or other interests, but the more posts I wrote, the less that stuff seemed to matter. I'm not the next style icon or NY Times best selling author of the century; I'm just a girl who loves to share her adventures with the world. So, thank you, to one and all who have liked, read, shared, or commented on this blog. I'm constantly inspired by your kind words and well wishes.
Cheers to another great year of adventures!
