I just wanted to give a special thanks to all of you, my loyal and sweet blogging friends.
Blogging by far been one of the most rewarding experiences to date, and I am so blessed to have met so many wonderful, kind, talented, funny and stylish people! (I mean it-you guys rock!)
My decision to start blogging was inspired by my mother, who has been blogging fashion and lifestyle tips for women over 50 for about 4 years now, and got up and running mostly from an excess of free time (long story short I moved from my home state, away from my friends and family to begin my BSN education, and had ample free time because I didn't know anyone nearby that I could hang out with). I also had an urge to do something that could improve my writing skills, as I never thought myself to be a strong writer and would be back in college doing a lot of well, writing! (Still, after 4 months into blogging, it's a work in progress. But let's be honest.. isn't life a continuous work in progress anyway?).
But having friends like all of you has been such encouragement that I felt I needed to say THANK YOU! Thank you a thousand times! <3 <3
Speaking of a thousand, I just hit over my 1,000 follower mark on Instagram (say whaaat?!). Also worth mentioning is that this blog is read in over 75 geographical locations (wowzers!). Not only have I made so many wonderful friends across the States (Jessica, Sara Lily, Serli, Rachel, Becca, Daisy, Jillian --all linked so be sure to check out their blogs--), but have friends from countries such as the U.K. (Hi Gabrielle!), Italy, South Africa (Hey Candice!), Germany, Russia, Canada (Hi Rebecca!), Thailand (Hey Kintan!), the Philippines, and countless countless others!
I also have two really awesome girls who guest blog on here every week (Click here to see all Tilly Style Tuesday posts, and be sure to stop by their blog as well!). They are just total sweethearts with great style and it's been awesome having them here!
The amount of support and kindness I have received honestly has me completely blown away and I wish I could individually thank each and every one of you, including all of my instagram friends. (I would if I could but that would take days, and nursing school keeps me super busy! Plus, I know none of you would want to see me fail because of that. I did link up some of my most loyal blogging friends above though, so stop over at their pages and say hello!).
I could probably keep on going here, but it's getting late and I need to get to bed. Tomorrow is halloween, I have a full day of classes, AND I need a good nights rest so I can keep up with trick or treating with my favorite little man! Isn't he the most adorable little monkey nephew?
