One Year of Blogging

via Confetti System
Well, it's official, with all of the busy-ness of finals week at school I missed my one year blogiversary. On December 8th, 2011, I started this blog (you can read the photo-less post here).
Back then, I didn't realize the time and dedication that writing a blog takes.
I also could never have anticipated all of the amazing friends and opportunities that blogging has brought.

It's truly amazing how far I have come in one short year.
God has blessed my life in many ways, and I am so happy.
Here are some highlights of my first year as a blogger:

I want to say thank you to all of the friends I've made. And for each an every follower who has encouraged me through my journey, and brought a smile to my face each day! You guys are a huge part of my motivation. I love you all.
 ps. Please be patient with me while I struggle to get all of my final projects done over the next two weeks! I will try to post when I can!
