I am so excited to announce that today is Baubles to Bubbles’ first birthday! I cannot believe it’s already been a year since I started my blog. When I started, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I knew blogging would be something I would love, but starting out was a scary experience. I actually set up my blog in the beginning of November, but didn’t even post anything for two weeks because I was anxiously trying to learn every aspect of blogging. If I had to give any advice to someone starting out, it would be to learn as you go. It’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them. I thought I needed to have everything perfect from the get go, and it was an intimidating and unrealistic way of thinking.
This is going to sound extremely cheesy, but blogging has changed my life. I was pretty lost this time last year after graduating from college. I was having a hard time finding a suitable job, and was still recovering from the terrible experiences I had with a group of mean girls in college. Blogging has made me realize that I’ve finally found something I’m truly passionate about. I feel like I’ve made so many friends over the past year that I sometimes forget we don’t all live in the same city! There are a ton of goals I still want to accomplish, but I’m so happy hitting the one year milestone has allowed me to put a checkmark next to one of those goals.
I got this cloche hat at Nordstrom the other day. I was looking for more of a fedora-like style, but I loved this color! One of my goals is to find the time to take pictures somewhere other than my driveway, but I have such a hard time for some reason. I had a little bit of free time yesterday, so I went to this gorgeous floral park by my house. Obviously, there aren’t too many florals right now, but there’s this amazing tepee in the center of the park where I took all my pictures!
