You guys!!! I just realized that today is my blogging 1-year anniversary!  It’s crazy how much has changed in a year! (Look at my first post – just go… look at it – for real. haha! How funny is that?!) I went from rarely posting anything ever last April, May and June, to posting 5 days a week starting in late July. And as those of you know who have been reading for some time – I started out in the blogger format and just a month or so ago, switched over to my new, customized blog with big, pretty pictures!

It’s honestly hard for me to remember a time when I wasn’t coming home from my day job, headed straight to my computer with ideas overflowing from my head about a story or a photo session I wanted to share with you all. I’m so happy I decided to start blogging (and blogging regularly). This last year has been quite the trip and I’m SO happy that I’ve taken the time to remember/document it all. My business has grown by leaps and bounds thanks in part to this blog (and to all of you!) and I hope that it continues to do so as we continue on this journey together!

So what better time than on my blogging anniversary – to thank all of you… all of my loyal readers who send me heartfelt emails that leave me in tears, and post comments on my personal stories to let me know I’m not alone. You guys honestly keep me going from day to day (especially when I have days like I did yesterday) – so THANK YOU. No – seriously – THANK. YOU. You all rock. Every last one of you.

I appreciate your love and support more than you will ever know!! XOXO!


Sending lots of love to all of you – always! ~ Christy 🙂
