2 Years

Today marks two years since I sat down at my old black laptop to write my very first blog post. Two years... that's insane! These past two years have flown by in the blink of an eye, but I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to document these past two years through this blog.

Peace signs in honor of two years!!
Blogging has really shaped me as a person and helped me stay true to myself while allowing to express my creativity. I wouldn't give it up for anything and I'm so glad that I made the impromptu decision to start a blog two years ago.

Two years ago, I was a completely different person than I am now. Not only have my writing and photography skills grown so much as a result of this blog, but I've grown as a person, too. Blogging has helped me develop a sense of confidence that I never had before, and it's also caused me to form an interest in business and marketing, which I never really knew I was interested in before I started blogging.

There have also been countless times when blogging is the only thing that has kept me sane. It's the perfect creative outlet for me to pour my soul into when I can't bear to complete another meaningless science worksheet or finish my math homework. It serves as a passion that is not only extremely fun, but also productive and rewarding.

I've also gotten the privilege to work with some of the most amazing people and companies because of this blog! One of the coolest partnerships I've done is when I was invited to attend an event at Lauren James, and I've also gotten to represent Jadelynn Brooke for two semesters now! I've also met some of the sweetest girls who share the same passions as me and can really relate to what it's like to be a blogger! None of this would have been possible if I hadn't published that very first blog post two years ago.

Finally, thank you for following along! Whether you've been here since that very first blog post and were one of my 60 pageviews during that first month of blogging, or you just stumbled across Live The Prep Life yesterday, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I'm still a fairly small blog but I've grown more than I'd ever imagined and your support means the world to me. Thank you.

A lot can happen in two years, and I can't wait to see where I will be in the next two years! Here's to many more blog posts and exciting adventures in the years to come.
