Throwback Thursday: Blog Birthday

Hello and happy Thursday!

One day closer to the weekend and it's supposed to start heating up and feeling like summer in Portland.

I want to use today to congratulate myself and my blog for consistently posting now for an entire year! The very first published post was last April, but the last week in June is when Babbling Brookelyn and I decided to stop stalking blogs and start contributing. Okay, so maybe we still stalk - she's better at stalking than I am.

My blogging has taken a turn for the better since I got a DSLR camera and started commenting on other blogs, but I really feel like what's kept me here is the support I have from my readers. Those who I know in real life are amazing for support they provide while those who only know me by the words that I type fascinate me for sticking around and making me feel like I have something worth sharing.

I think it's only right that today's Throwback Thursday highlights some of my very first posts in June of 2012 where we can all suffer through my iPhone photos.

A time before I had a cute blog template, before I used instagram, before I knew about cute photo apps with text and collages.

Most importantly, a time before I really knew what my blogging 'voice' was.
