Blog Birthday!!! (Winners too!)

It's my blog birthday!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for seeing me and my stories through year one!!!

At the risk of sounding like a total freak, I LOVE blogging!  When I started last June, I never imagined what a big part of my life it would become.  Honestly, I've decided that blogging really changes your perspective on life... Whenever anything bad/embarrassing happens to me, I just look at the bright side and think: "Oh, the blog will love this!" 

I blog because it helps me record and remember all the little "everyday" events and thoughts of this stage of life.  I blog because it lets me be creative again and, for the first time since I was little girl, write FOR FUN.  I blog because it keeps me connected to people I love that I don't get to talk to every day in real life.  And, because it introduces me to people all over the world who provide laughs, encouragement, affirmation, and support.  I blog because I still get SUPER excited whenever I see I have a new follower or an email from a new friend.

Over the last twelve months, I feel like I have been blessed to be a part of an incredible community of women (and men) with fascinating stories from all walks of life.  THANK YOU for coming alongside me and hearing my stories in my little walk. 

Here's to another year of blogging with - hopefully - lots more adventures to report!!

  3. Brianna, the font of my blog is just plain ole Century Gothic. I have no idea how to set this as your font... my awesome blog designer Tricia Nae did it. BUT, I love it too!
    (Is that the font you are talking about?)
