my rearview mirror

For the first time in a while I looked back through some of my old blog posts.  I couldn't believe how inspiring it was to be able to read how I was feelings, things I was going through, and even look through old style posts.  It was just the validation I needed about why blogging, or at least some form of documentation of life is completely necessary.  Too often we allow moments to pass and we forget to tear off a piece of their goodness to keep for later.  I believe that every single step in your path lead you to where you are today.  Every good thing, every bad thing, is now a part of who you are.  Take a look in my (blog) rear view mirror with me...

- I wrote my very first post on October 10, 2011.  25 facts about little ol' me.  It's surprising how very little has changed.

- I love Sundays.  And my hubby.

- Mackenzie and I wrote a Fall Essentials list.  It was SO much fun.  It gives me such a blissful heart to look back on good memories with friends and still be able to feel the happiness. (And this was my favorite essential and photos session).

- This post is a beautiful reminder of why I blog.

- The awesome & awkward posts will always be near and dear to my heart.  These are my favorites... 1, 2 & 3.  It's funny how many times public restrooms, co-workers, and me tripping come up.

- A life lesson about God's timing.

- Being in my last year of college brought about many different emotions.  And thus college was written about a lot.  Like taking the good with the bad.  Diagnosing myself with senioritis.  Having college brainStudy tips from moi.  Being strong enough to make it through the end.

- Recently I took some graduation pictures for a soon to be graduate and it reminded me of how fun it was having my grad session.  It made me feel like the end was finally real.

- I am a pathological list maker.

- Find out mine and Ryan's love languages.  I love the reminder to "keep everyone's tanks full."

- This is an awesome recipe for Baked Cheesy Chicken Penne.  We still make it.

- I was completely taken back when I ready a list from the end of 2011 called try in 2012.  I'm going to do a full recap on this post soon, just because I was SO inspired by reading it again.

- Our first married Christmas and things that really matter.

- Creating yet another style feature with Katie.  We called them style busters and we busted a bunch of fashion myths.  So many good memories from something so simple.  (My fave outfits here & here).

- Forgiveness is always a topic I love to remind my self of over and over again.

- Looking back at when Bear first joined our family and his weekend of firsts.

- Two of my favorite styled photos.  And a twisty hairstyle.

- I created a DIY Vintage Map Decoupaged Letter and it has probably been my most popular post thus far.

- Possibly the best ascot ever.  And a list of wardrobe items you should have a variety of.

- It was pretty inspiring to be reminded of some of my career dreams.  Sometimes they get overshadowed with day to day life.

- I recapped my wedding photos at the date of our one year anniversary.

I took a blogging hiatus after that and started posting again in April of 2013.  I'm still working to get back to blogging consistently but taking a look in my rear view mirror has definitely given me some inspiration and motivation.  A little soul searching never hurts.
