Exactly five years ago, I started Beautygirl24. I had no idea what I was doing (I still don't really), but I was so excited about having my own little space to write about things I love. I didn't take into account how it would change my life. I didn't know it would give me more confidence, and I didn't know just how many girls I would "meet" or how many friends I would make. In fact, I never imagined I would attract a single reader. I originally only planned on doing beauty reviews and shopping posts, and then my blog transformed rather slowly into what it is today. I was passionate about it then, and I'm still passionate about it today. The blogging world has changed so much in the past five years, and I'm so fortunate that I can be a part of it in my own small way. Today, I just wanted to thank you guys for all of your sweet comments, questions, advice, inspiration, and support. I've seen so many ladies come and go, many who have perhaps moved onto other interests. But I've also known quite a few of you since the beginning (you know who you are). I've never had a real vision for Beautygirl24, and I think that's why I've enjoyed it so much over the years! I've never wanted to put pressure on something that I choose to participate in out of pure joy. I hope to continue to build relationships within this community, and I'm always open to new friends who love style, fashion, and beauty as much as I do.
Happy birthday blog :)
Oh, and I need to thank this man for his support too! He photographs me while we laugh together, and until a year ago, he had never delved into photography. He tells me I'm beautiful even when I feel anything but. And he takes a genuine interest in my interests.
P.S. - We devoured the red velvet cupcake seconds after this photo.
