1 Year Blog Birthday + A Giveaway!

Guys, it has been one year since I started this blog. Can you believe that? I technically started blogging in July of 2012, but decided to rebuild my blog into what it is today. I am really happy with that decision and have loved seeing it grow over this past year. It has been a wonderful year! I have connected with so many fellow bloggers, many of which I really hope to meet in "real life" someday.

Blogging is not easy. It is a rewarding experience, but it definitely takes more work than I ever thought. I love pushing myself to keep developing this space, though, and am proud of what it has become through all of time, energy, and Starbucks visits. Working on this blog is one of my very favorite things, something that makes me immeasurably happy and fulfilled.

Thank you to all of you who have ever visited my blog, left a comment (they really make me happy!), or connected with me in some way. I can honestly say that I probably wouldn't have made it this far without you all!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this past year:
+Austin: My New Favorite Place (Part 1 + Part 2)
Blue Bottle Coffee
Adventure: Lake Tahoe
+ Peanut Butter Dog Treats
+ My Grandpa & the Nikon F
+ It's a Japanese Thing
