I'm a proud mama.
Today is my blog's first birthday!

Exactly a year ago today, I posted my first blog post: a recipe for Brazilian lemonade! It's crazy to think that it's been a whole year since I started this blogging journey and I have to say, it's been nothing but amazing. I've made so many friends, both online and in real life #RABLJ. I've learned so much about myself and feel like I've found who I truly am. I've discovered something I am extremely passionate about and am blessed with a way to share that passion with the world! As I've grown as a person, my style and taste has grown as well.

But let's be real, this isn't really a celebration of just my blog. 
It's a celebration of you guys.
My readers.
My friends.
You guys are THE BEST.

I want to thank each and every one of you who has ever subscribed to, commented on, shared, or simply visited my blog. You guys have no idea how much your encouragement and support means to me. My blog really is my "baby" and I've been so appreciative of all the kindness it's received over this past year. I love you all and wish I could give each of you a hug, but for now, here's a [cyber hug]. ;)


Today's outfit has two of my favorite pieces from Bethany Mota's clothing line at Aeropostale. This knit cardigan and fun flower crown are the perfect pieces for a warm summer day with a cool breeze. The weather in Provo has been exactly that this past week, so I've totally been an outfit repeater (sorry Kate Sanders) by wearing this cardigan A LOT lately. When a piece of clothing is as comfortable as this though, it's a shame NOT to wear it a ton! :)

Fun fact: Today is also my parents' 33rd wedding anniversary! I think it's so cute when couples are together longer than they've been apart. :) They're celebrating it by attending a session at the same temple they got married in! Seriously, so cute.

May 1st is just awesome.
