[ 2 year blogiversary! ]



SO, 2 YEARS ago today I started this blog {read my first post here}. I had no idea what I was doing, if anyone would read it, how it would evolve or if I would even keep it up. I was embarking on a new chapter in my life, having shelved my magazine career. I was determined to look forward, pursue other interests and live a happier life.

And so I created my first post. And then another. I soon discovered that blogging would become a bit of a scrapbook for me ~ to share decorating ideas, travel photos, recipes, diy projects, all the things that I was about. And eventually, something happened along the way... I started to love it.

Over the past 2 years, I have made some wonderful blogging friends. Full of encouragement, laughs and generous compliments. So many people still look at me blankly when I say that I have a blog and just don't "get it", but that's ok. Posting that first post was the best thing I could have done. I took a leap and it opened up a whole new world of friends, inspiration, positivity and joy.

Thanks for sticking around and becoming such wonderful friends. Bopping around as an expat isn't easy but all of you have made it a little easier and I've come to depend on you for your support, kind words and just being there. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Here's to another year of fun posts!

Lisa!
Happy Blo"GIVER"sary!
I met you one year ago last week!
I'll never forget! I was a beginning blogger and you popped in to follow and visit! I was elated! You were a magazine art director and following my blog! My confidence level jumped to the moon! Since that day, you have become such a wonderful and inspiring friend. You are with me at coffee almost every morning of my life! That's perfect reason to fall in love with blogging!

Happy 2 years to you!!! One of my favorite daily stops and I can't wait to see what the next 2 years holds for you! xo

AAAaaaaamazing Lisa! So great - I know exactly that reaction when you tell people you have a blog. Most people are like "Huh? Really?" - so I generally just don't tell people now. Arg. Not the best at self promotion I guess. Anyways- congrats dear! Major milestone...Very exciting to follow along on your new adventure,
Meagan
