Happy Blogiversary!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012



One year ago today, I started a lifestyle blog called "Urban Lace." Every time I look back at my first post, I blush with embarrassment. (I still can't believe people other than my mom were reading it back in those days!)

In some ways though, it is nice to see such a stark reminder of just how far I've come. Not only has my photography improved (goodbye, Instagram!) but, I also think I've become a better writer.

For those of you still wondering why on earth I spend so much time on this little project... my only answer is: because I love it. This blog has been a really nice way to outlet some of my creativity. It's wonderful to have a free space to collect my thoughts, dreams, ideas, and projects. And, it makes me happy to have free artistic reign over this domain.

It's also been a wonderful way to document my life. At any point, I can go back and see what I was thinking about exactly 8 months ago, or I can relive my 25th birthday party, or be transported back to our anniversary trip in New York. All that info is in one place - easily accessible to my friends and family.

So, here's to a great year and (hopefully) many more! Thank you for joining me on this journey. We've already come a long way, but I'm excited to see just what the future holds!

And now, I've got a date with some celebratory gelato... obviously.

  1. happy blogiversary! hitting the one year mark is a milestone with a blog. it kind of solidifies the fact that YOU CAN DO THIS everyday! At first it seems having enough day to day content is impossible, but once you hit the year, you know it's possible, right? Teri

    Best,
