Happy One Year Anniversary to My Blog!

I am amazed at how quickly one year of blogging has gone by.  When I started blogging, like many of you, I had no idea what to expect or in what direction this hobby might lead me.  I am very grateful that I have inspired people and have been so inspired myself by my readers and fellow bloggers.  The friendships that I have made through blogging have been the most wonderful part of this experience.

Although I primarily blog about fashion, several of my favorite posts have been in the design category.  My very first post (directly below) was a means of combining my love of design and fashion.  Here are a few of my favorite post highlights (one per month) from this past year :)
