A few final thoughts...
This week I have covered some of my favorite moments, talked a lot about what makes me tick, and what keeps me motivated, but today, I round out the blogiversary week with what I am excited for in the future, and how grateful I am for you!
I have learned so much about blogging in the past year. What to do, what not to do. I finally feel like I am at a place where my pieces are relevant to what I stand for, and that my words are being heard. When you first start something like this, it's nerve racking. You don't want to annoy people with your Instagram blasts, and Facebook posts, because lord knows, we all have that friend that makes sure we know they went to the bathroom that day. But most of all, it's hard to put yourself out there, and be completely open and honest with your world.
I got to tell you, though, that once I got over the nerves, I'm glad that I was honest. The more I put out there, the more that I find that I'm not the only one. And let's be real. Seriously. Let's be REAL. And that is exactly what I intend to do. It is exactly what you, my friends, have allowed me to do. My hope is to expand my Pages of Inspiration. Of course I will still stick with the fashion, but I would love for everyone to continue to live and learn with me. What better way to let them see the real you, than by sharing stories.
Now, some of you may know that one of my best friends and I started a travel blog, Wildly Willed. And, in a little over a month, we are about to embark on an adventure to Scotland! Ten glorious days traveling the Scottish Highlands, snapping pics, drinking whiskey, and trying to go through stones to 1743 (Outlander fans, you know what I'm talking about. And if you don't, you should watch!). This trip is just one planned (so far) in the next blogging year. This year one of my goals is to see more of the world, and to capture all my adventure stories to share with you!
So, my friends, I could sit here and list off all the things that I plan to do this upcoming year, one by one, but I'm not (don't worry). Instead, I want to take a moment to thank you. Thank you for keeping up with my story, whether it's the latest and greatest trends, or the tell-tale truth, you all have given me motivation to keep this going. I want to continue to share my thoughts, and adventures with you, and I've got say, I am so excited for what is planned so far! I can't wait to show you!
