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.
