6 month Blogoversary... And Why I Almost Didn't Start the Blog

Today is my 6 month Blogoversary! And 44 blog posts later I’m still here. I started sharing with you all about my everyday adventures back in September when Chris and I returned from our amazing two week stay in Florence, Italy.

Being away from my normal routine for that long allowed me to think without distraction about some of the things I’ve always wanted to do. But there were a few reasons that I almost didn’t start the blog. I thought:

  1. I’ll never be as good as other bloggers

  2. My clothes aren’t stylish enough

  3. I don’t have a good camera

  4. I don’t travel to exotic places

But (with the help of Chris) I realized those were just excuses. I didn’t have to be like the other bloggers because this was my blog and my unique take on life. My clothes didn’t have to be brand new and “on trend.” And even though I’ve recently invested in an DSLR - I started out my blog using only a smartphone - and it worked just fine. While I started out the blog talking about our trip to Italy, I had worried that when I went back to blogging about normal life that people wouldn’t want to read. But I was wrong!

I’m so thankful for all of you who keep coming back to the blog! And for any of you who are new, I wanted to share with you my 3 most popular blog posts. Thanks for stopping by!
