Happy 1st Birthday Look Linger Love!


Today is quite bittersweet for me as it's the one year anniversary of the day I started my blog.  Yep, Look Linger Love is ONE!  This little place has brought me so much joy and passion.  I knew I'd love blogging, but I had no idea how important it would be to me.  I have made an army of friends who inspire me everyday- some in our "online world" but also a large number in my real day to day life.  You all know who you are, and I love you.  I'm even a little weepy as I write this... can I just blame the pregnancy hormones? 

The people and experiences are what make blogging worth all of the time that it takes (which is a lot for those of you wondering).  But when it's something that you love, all of that time is well spent.  I thank each and everyone of you who want to take a few minutes out of your very busy days to visit this little space, it means the world to me.  I love sharing what inspires me with all of you.

So I thought it might be appropriate take a look back at my very first post that I shared here on my blog.  I still believe every word that I wrote.  And I got a really warm and fuzzy feeling when I noticed where I sourced my very first image.  Wow, look at how far this little blog has come :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You see, not that many things have changed since I became a momma. You read that right. Sure, there are days when I'm still in my pajamas at noon. Yeah, my receipts at Target are exponentially higher these days.  But ultimately, I'm still trying to live my life as happily and beautifully as I can. What better way to chronicle and share my daily inspirations than a blog?

Because really, who says you can't carry a supply of diapers and Cheerios in an incredible handbag?
