Yes, I blog.

Since moving to Charlotte, I've used blogger's recommendations to find great services around here - such as the lovely Alchemy: The Workshop for my semi-recent haircut and LRT for my hair and make up yesterday! (Thank you Alexa and Christina!) When I get there, though, they of course ask how I heard about them and since I've only "met" these girls through blogging, I, of course, say I read their blogs.

And then the questions of if I blog as well is asked...

When I first started this blog, I didn't tell anyone (except my roommate because she wanted to start one as well) and I wasn't quite sure if I would even like it or stick with it. And here we are coming up on a year later, I'm still here and I'm still liking it. And I'm telling more people about it as well. Even if some people still think I'm crazy - I love it!

So today, I present to you...

one // I get to share pictures of Zuko to my heart's content. He's adorable. And you guys seem to think he's cute, too. So there will be many more pictures of my little babe on here :) And when we do get a dog (or another cat) you will see a lot of those as well. 

two // I can talk about Christian and weddings as much as I want! Bloggers love talking about their relationships and weddings and I seriously love that! I know those are some of my favorite posts to read and I'm glad you guys like to read mine, too!

Okay, so this is somewhat wedding related - its for our shoot yesterday! And I had to brag on LRT for my hair/makeup!
three // Inspiration. I follow a few of my favorite fashion bloggers and I'm always finding something new I want to try. And reading Erin's posts on conquering debt push me to attempt to spend less and save more. Whether it be a beauty product or new recipe, I feel like I learn something new that I want to try almost every day. 

four // Encouragement. When I've posted things I'm struggling with like the hours at my current job or being judged for being "too young" to get married, you guys are always there with encouraging words and for that, I'm so grateful. 

five // All of you lovely ladies! Sometimes, I feel like I know you all in real life and many times I refer to you as "friend" if I'm telling a funny story you shared or a tweet conversation we had that was funny or sweet. Christian always ask how I know so much about you guys - but, he just doesn't get it. We all come here to share, learn, grow and support each other and I love the community that surrounds us all :)

Your hair and makeup look awesome, you're so pretty!

1. Again I must say, you are beautiful! I hope your pictures went well! Can't wait to see them.
2. Blogging is a weird and funny thing to those who don't do it, but such a happy thing to those who are "in on the secret." I love that about it! So glad that blogging gave us a chance to "meet" - now if we could have a real life coffee date, that'd be somethin'! :)

These would be my 5 reasons too! Peter does not get blogging either and asks the same question haha. I didn't think it would bring this much to my life but I'm so happy it did! Hopefully we'll get to have a blate someday!!

Until a few weeks ago only Brandon and the blog world knew i blogged, but hes taken to telling everyone if he gets a chance..so while I want to smother him with a pillow i take it that hes proud of it, in a way?

I love this post! Nobody in real life knows I have a blog...and I'm not sure why. But I also find myself referring to "friends" who have told me this or that. We're weird but I love it.
