You read that right. Today I’m celebrating my sixth (6th!!!!) blogiversary. Well, it’s technically not today, it was earlier this month, but I don’t know the EXACT date because transferring and moving blogs over the years I’ve lost a TON of my archives. So, we make do with what we got. Alls I know is this blog started in 2007.
I can’t believe I’ve really kept this thing alive for six years.
I’m not going to rehash the past six years because that would be boring. But I will say that I’ve learned a lot. Personally, professionally, spiritually, bloggily. I’ve learned a lot. This blog is totally a reflection of me. And I always want it to be that way.
I want people to come to this blog and feel like they’re getting a slice of Molly. I want every word to sound like me. I want every picture and story and post to feel like me. I don’t ever want to lose sight of that. And I think I’ve done a pretty good job of it up till this point.
This blog sure has changed a lot over the past six years – and frankly, I’m glad that it has. Because I’ve changed a lot. But I’m still the same old me. I’m still Molly. Get it? The name? Of this blog? No? Bueller?
I could get sappy and all reflective and stuff, but I’m not going to do that. I’m going to actually keep this one relatively short and sweet. 2013 was an awesome year and I have a feeling 2014 is going to be even better. F’real.
I really can’t thank y’all enough for coming back to this blog day in and day out and reading and commenting and liking and sharing and posting and pinning and tweeting and loving. It is really a huge part of what motivates me to keep going, writing, and sharing my heart.
I wish I could write each one of you a handwritten thank you note and get each of y’all a thank you gift. But that would be extremely difficult – let’s be honest.
So, the least I can do is give away one giant prize package filled with things I love from places and people I love to one of y’all! Right? Right.
Some of my most valued friends and sponsors have agreed to chip in on this thing and I’m even throwing something in the pot, too! 🙂
