Today I'm hitting publish on my 1,000th post. I had a different post idea for today, but since I hit this milestone, I think it needed to be stated. Since we're hitting the season of change: the steaming cups of pumpkin flavored coffee, the blanket scarves are in full force, and I'm currently burning a sweater weather candle, I wanted to reflect on this past year.
There's been so much change lately, so here's what's happened in the past few months:
Michael, Millie, Hugo and I packed up our bags and moved to Nashville. We are currently loving it. The weather has been great, the food is delightful, the people are nice, and there are so many pockets to explore and things to do.
I am feeling a little homesick. Today is the first day of the State Fair of Texas, one of my all time favorite things to do every year. I'm going home next week for a friend's wedding so I'm going to try to squeeze it in. Can't wait. All the fried things, please.
This year I've traveled to Arizona, Vegas (twice) and saw Britney Spears (!), Orlando, Memphis, Destin (Seaside), New Orleans, Austin, St. Louis, Mexico and heading to Cincinnati today. I'm also going to South East Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, and Thailand) in less than 2 months.
I am now a full-time blogger. Along with that, I have a new free webinar coming up next week: Get Noticed Now. Everyone wants to get noticed online. If you disagree (and you blog) I don't believe you. You can sign up here.
I'm really proud of my blogging friends. Taylor launched her very own online shopping site that is already killing it: Nebrowse. No wonder, this is one of the coolest places I've ever seen to shop online.
Bon started her own jewelry line, Hey June Shop. (You can get 20% off with code “HELENE20”. I love them, I own a necklace that I have yet to take off.
This photo above is from my Instagram has been stolen at least half a dozen times. It's a picture of pumpkins, I don't get it. Maybe they need to be taking my instagram for success course? If you like someone's photo just ask to use it and give them credit, it's pretty simple. Also, a picture from the blog was taken and made into a meme (no, not that one) but I won't link to the site because it's awful. It's from my clearly make-fun-of-myself contour tutorial.
The internet is weird and wonderful.
Thanks for sticking around and reading this blog. I really appreciate it and know that I am just thrilled to have a place to write and share everyday. Cheers to 1,000!
