May 10

My blog turns a whole year old today. It seems almost impossible that that much time has gone by. I can honestly still remember thinking about starting it, getting prepared to start it, picking my name (which came about because I am the daughter of not one, but two hippies), and then launching my site and first post. Sending something with my picture and my words off into the virtual world we know as blogging was a totally foreign concept to me and I didn’t know what to expect. So I’ve celebrated this milestone with an outfit that I saved up for by one of my favorites (Isabel), and a giant balloon that was bigger than me. And because it’s just Murphy’s Law, we happened to shoot on the windiest day and I was both almost blown away by said balloon, and also beaten up by it. Let me tell you, a giant 36″ balloon seriously hurts when a gust of wind smashes it into your head. (My sweet photographer suffered some beatings as well). But it’s ok, I survived. Definitely my most high maintenance shoot by far, but also my most fun. And that’s what this is all about. If you’re not blogging for fun,then what’s the point? It really is a lot of work, and I admire and respect so many others in this industry. But you need to have fun with it. Blog what you want to blog about, and when. Don’t let others influence your vision, and be honest. I hope people enjoy reading my blog–I mean, my parents tell me that they do (Hi Mom and Dad), but I hope that the people that I know, and also the ones that I don’t know, do as well. I love the writing just as much, it’s not only about pictures. Fashion is fun, don’t take it too seriously and wear what you want to wear. And if I had to pick one of my favorite things I’ve gotten from this experience so far, besides the new relationships that I’ve made, is that my 5 year old now knows what a blog is.
