One Year Ago Today...

My little blog is officially one year old today!! This has been such an amazing year, full of new possibilities, dreams and great new friends. I am so thankful to all of you that have stuck around and checked in to what I have to say! It means the world to me. When I started this blog, I was amazed that people would read it, comment and actually follow! Me?? I have loved blogging so far, and I look forward to future posts!



I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my very first post (which actually had no pictures!)

1/8/11

I have loved interior design for as long as I can remember.  I am an avid HGTV fan and love to come up with new decorating ideas, or expanding on existing ones.  My education background is not design, but I feel it is my calling!  I daydream about what to decorate next, or how large print damask wallpaper will look in my entryway.  I truly believe that you don't have to be a famous designer to have great style.  You also don't have to break the bank to afford great style.  Choosing to begin with timeless pieces that will always be in vogue and will stand through the ever changing trends is what makes your design last!
Let's get ready to talk design!

Well... I did do the large print damask wallpaper in our foyer! I also tried out stenciling this year and embarked on a new e-decorating career! My first actual client was this past summer, and it was so much fun. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing this blog and sharing what I love to talk about... design! I promise that this coming year will be filled with gorgeous room inspirations, lots of DIY projects and more decor fun. Thanks so much for checking in and reading, and here's to another year!!

I just recently started following your blog after we were "introduced" through Holly"s (West Pear Ave)guest post on my blog. Such great content! Congrats on a year of blogging!

Holly said...

Congrats to you Amber - how exciting! A year of blogging sounds like a long time but I'm sure it has flown for you too. It is a huge accomplishment and something you should be very proud of. I've been talking to a few friends recently, some of which have asked questions about blogging because they were just curious and some were asking because they were interested in starting a blog, but the more I think about it the more I think it takes a special person to be motivated and to want to blog. I don't know if that makes sense or not but wanted to share my thoughts that this isn't easy but your hard work does not go unnoticed. Hope you're having a great weekend!
