happy blogbirthday to me!

Okay my blogbirthday is actually tomorrow but I like to stick to my Wednesday need.want.love. format so I am celebrating early (but not actually with cake).

It is pretty amazing to think that it has been 364 days since I started this. I seriously thought I'd never make it to a year.  Writing a blog seems like a great idea until you realize to be effective you need to write pretty much everyday and not just write anything, write something people want to read!  That can be a pretty tall order some days.  But after a while, just like anything, it becomes a habit and your brain begins to think like a blogger, picking up ideas everywhere you go.

It has become easier; I have certainly improved in my writing, imagery and posting consistency (OMG please don't go back and read anything past say March- embarrassing) but the blog has a long way to go for it to be something I can say I'm really proud of.  For now I will just be proud that I made it a year and that there is someone reading this thing- thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!

Here are a few highlights, proud moments and favorite posts from this year...
