My Blog Turns 1

I should make a teal cake to celebrate, right??

Today my blog is officially one year old!!! I have been slacking lately in this department but I have been so overwhelmed and excited about having Artie. I have a lot more good things in store for you if I can stop long enough to write them.

In honor of Designer in Teal turning one, I am going to share my top 5 reasons why I LOVE blogging!

1) The friendships- I have "met" so many amazing women through blogging and some I've even gotten to meet in real life! I even consider one of them one of my best friends. Veronica and I are planning our vacation together for next year. I can't wait to finally meet this amazing girl!

2) The creativity- Blogging makes me push my limits to find new design inspiration. Every time I create a design board, I want a fresh and exciting design that is unique so you will want to keep coming back. And I love when I have a "client" as it gives me some practice for work. Not only that, but learning how to design my own blog has taught me more about graphic design.

3) The motivation- Because I want to have awesome things to share with you, blogging makes me want to go out and DIY something or try a new recipe instead of sitting on my couch all day. (oh and take more pictures...even though I still fail at that one)

4) The journaling- This space allows me to look back to any date and see how my life has changed. It also allows my family and friends to keep up with me.

5) The love- It seriously makes my day every time I get a comment from one of you. I read EVERY single one and it overwhelms me how sweet you are and how much you care so thank you!

I hope that you have decided to stick around my little piece of the internet even though I have been absent. I appreciate each one of you sooo much. Get ready because I will be catching up soon :)

I also have some bloggers to thank for helping me get to where I am now...love you ladies
