Before I share another THING, I just want to say thank you for making this blog what it is today. I have had the opportunity the work with some amazing people, some awesome brands, and honestly, open up about things that I just needed to get off my chest. Thank you really isn’t enough, but I mean it whole-heartedly every single time I say it. If it wasn’t for you guys, as the readers, my little corner of the Internet would be full of crickets and cobwebs! So, thank you!

Thank you for also supporting me as I promote this little space on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook! I know the thank you’s may seem redundant, but I really do mean it! Aside from just hopping over here to read, every single like, comment, share, and good ol’ word of mouth recommendation keep this blog going! And thank you to my husband, family, and closest friends who get asked, texted, emailed, etc. the most random questions and pictures and who knows what else all hours of the day and night and always help me out!

If You Want Him to “Take the Picture,”  Then Stop Complaining


And lastly, I want to thank you because aside from my passion of writing, I have been able to encompass two of my other passions into this space – traveling and party planning. In 2017 I partnered with multiple shops and companies who helped bring my party visions to life – including the cutest vintage carnival birthday party and a beautiful boho baby shower, to name just a couple! I also had my very first travel related collaboration and partnered with a restaurant while John and I were on our anniversary trip in Charleston! Honestly, typing all that brought tears to my eyes! I’m so, so grateful!

3rd Most Viewed Post of the Year & Most Pinned on Pinterest:

Gifts for the Man Who Has Everything


In 2018, I don’t see my blog topics changing much as they are things I’m both passionate about and topics my readers have told me they enjoy! They are all things that honestly come naturally to me. I’d love to take on a few more fashion-esque posts, but don’t hold your breath. Recipes, however, you will continue to unlikely see! haha

I shared a bit on my 2018 goals post, but I want to grow this blog even more as well – more blog posts each month, be more active on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook, look into sharing on StumbleUpon (I know nothing about this currently), work on my photography skills, take on some sponsored posts, and give this bad boy a face lift!
