Happy Friday dear friends! I totally had something else planned but late last night I discovered that today, March 9th was an important event. And I had to make note of it here since it concerns the blog. Exactly two years ago today I started Lauren Elise Crafted. Yep, it's my birthday!
I won't lie, this birthday snuck up on me a bit. I kept assuming it was sometime next week. But according to my calendar March 9, 2010 was the day Lauren Elise Crafted got started. I read my first post ever last night and couldn't believe how my reasons for starting this blog then and my reasons for continuing to blog now are still very similar. I was super excited about beginning my journey into blogging. I am still just as thrilled to be here. I continue to see new things, create new things, meet new people that makes this whole journey completely worthwhile.
Two years ago I was looking for a place to share my ideas and inspirations publicly and to connect with people through this creativity. That is still my goal today. My favorite part about blogging is sharing my projects with you all and talking about it and learning from each other and inspiring each other. That is why I am here.
As I reflect today, I am amazed by all that has changed and yet equally amazed by the similarities between Lauren Elise Crafted on day one and Lauren Elise Crafted now on day 732. These two years have been good to me and I mostly have you wonderful readers to thank for that. I appreciate you all visiting, for commenting, for pinning my images, for collaborating with me, for liking me on Facebook, for having me make something for you...for following along with my journey. No matter how small, the interactions are meaningful to me.
So happy birthday to me, to this blog! The next two years excite me like no other and I cannot wait to continue doing the things I started out doing in March 2010. Thank you again for being a part of it. Next week will be Birthday Week on the blog and I'll be recapping my year (see my first year recap here) and doing some other fun DIYs and celebratory things. So do check back to enjoy the fun. Happy weekend to you all!
