One Year?!?!?

Holy crap guys.

One. Freaking. Year.

I started this blog on December 31st, 2014, after months of deliberation and careful planning in the car ride home from a new year's party. (It didn't go public until Jan. 3, 2015, for any of y'all who are confused about that.)

I'm nowhere near where I thought or hoped I'd be, but hey, there are worse things. I can, however, honestly say with 100% total truth that blogging has absolutely changed my life, and without this experience I'd be nowhere near the person I am today. You guys have helped me come out of my shell in ways I couldn't have even imagined one year ago.

So yeah. I'd like to thank Annie, Charlotte (the British one), Jenni, Emily, Olivia, Maddie, Shannon, Adi, J, Lydia, and Kelsey for being awesome friends and blogging pals.

Also Thorin, for being amazing (and dealing with the chocolates that one time).

Also Gwen, for being the very best blogger buddy I could have.

And finally Reagan, for being the amazing supportive bean that you are.

So yeah. I'm not one with words when it comes to things like this (even though I seem to have an inexhaustible fountain when it comes to everything else), so I'm gonna leave this here, with my most sincere of thanks and a fireworks gif.


Namarië,
Ellie

You've always been such a big supporter of mine, and I appreciate all your comments to bits. You're amazing, and lovely, and a fabulous pickle, and I hope that your new year is fantastic. <3

  2. Oh! Both a Happy New Year and happy blogiversary to you, Ellie! Congratulations. ^^ I celebrated mine back in October, so I know just how exciting it is! I completely agree that blogging is and has been an amazing experience. It's a challenge, though, isn't it? So you should be proud that you've made it as far as you have. An entire year, you've lasted! And hopefully many more.

    All the best to you <3

  4. Congratulations on one year! :)

    Also you are the sweetest ever. I want to cry. I have so much to say but it's 1:17am and I want to sleep. So, I'm going to email you a nice long letter, probably this afternoon, about how insanely happy you've made me these past few days. :)

    Oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
