April and May (which might I add practically hasen't even started) have been kicking my butt which is why there have been long postless strands. Honestly I have been rethinking this blogging thing. I have been thinking some things that I feel cross all of us lifestyle blogger's minds-- "Why am I writing? "No one wants to read about that", " This is dumb", "What if people don't like this?". I started scrolling though old post and my camera stream and quickly realized that blogging isn't for anyone else it is for me not anyone else. I have compiled a little list of how blogging has changed my life.
1. I actually figured out how to do my hair.
Thanks to Kate and the thousands of other tutorials out there my hair is no longer something I begrudgingly dry and straighten in the morning, but something that is a ket to my personal style.

2. I have met some of the most amazing, inspiring, joyful people
I could have ever asked to meet!
We hear about the blogging community all the time and it is truly the best part of blogging, stepping out from behind the key borad and getting to meet amazing that share their stories, struggles and triumphs everyday is why I keep pounding the keys.
3. Everything I own is now monogrammed.
Not that I didn't love a good monogram before I started blogging, but now I get to help support small businesses with my obsession!!!

4. I will never forget what my feet look like.
It is a FACT that my style has improved 10 fold since I started this little online space. It is always fun to look back and see how style and trends change!
5. My obsession with leopard have tripled.
If you had any doubt that leopard is the best animal print in the world then please talk to me because you are sadly, sadly mistaken!
6. I would not have been inspired to get fit!
I have never really been athletic, I danced in high school because it was fun and social NOT because I enjoyed doing 3000 crunches to Madonna songs. Once I stated being part of an online community I realized that fitness was something that is not only necessary in life but something that can be enjoyable.
Thank you to all of those who read this random mash up of life. Thank you to all who encourage and inspire me everyday. Thank you to all the people who keep writing against everything that tells us we shouldn't.
I truly love each and everyone of you.
