Friday Finds #52 + a Blogging Anniversary

Holy cow batman! I'm pretty freakin excited today. Not only because its a new month, or because its two weeks till Valentines day, or even that these next few weeks are going to be chalk full of fabulous posts up the wazoo, but today marks 1 year since I made my blog public to the world! I'd been blogging for a few months already, but it had all just been privately for myself. Today, 1 year ago, I hit the public button and was starting out with no followers, no comments, no pageviews what-so-ever. No twitter, facebook, bloglovin, hellocotton, or even instagram:) What an amazing change has happened here in the last year! I'm excited to spend the net few weeks sharing little posts here and there on my blogging journey and things I've learned along the way, etc. If you have any questions too feel free to ask, and I'll do my best to answer! Happy February Friends! Now onto my finds:)
