July 25th. The day this blog began (dramatic opening, I think so). On this day one year ago I made my very first post on my blog Calur Villade. Argg it was an awkward, shitty post to say the least and though I am super reluctant to give you a link to the page I will because you can search it on my archives anyways. So here it is. You happy?!

ANYWAY, today is the one year anniversary of my little blog being on the interwebs. Aww they’re always so cute when they hit one. I wanted to do something special relating to my first post ever so I shot the photos for this post where I shot my first post, at the front gate of my backyard. (I also incorporated the pink scarf I wore in that post too, I’m cool like that) At the time I thought my style was truly outrageous and was scared of my neighbors seeing me. So like the outfit conscious girl that I was I hid in the condiments of my backyard covered by trees and what not. But boy have things changed. I spent some time looking through the progress of my blog, how I’ve grown with what I post and it is totally mind boggling. I know that girl one year ago would never in a million years think she’d end up like me. But I am happy she did. I have learned so much the past year; not just through my blog and who I have met here but life outside my blog (yes bloggers can have lives too).

And now to you guys! (I have saved the best for last) I know you’re probably sick of hearing this, I say it all the time but I seriously love you all! This blog could not happen without the support you all have given me the past year. Whether you are old or new to my blog when you pressed that follow button you added more fuel to my drive to do cooler and better things. And your comments crack me up. It is so awesome that even if I was having a bad day, when I come home and check my blog you guys have nothing but love and insight. I’m going to stop myself now before I start sounding like a cheesy hallmark card or something to summarize this I love u guys x 10000000000000000000000000000.

Have a great day
