Here&Now turns 2!

Good morning y'all. This Thursday is exciting for more than just being the day before Friday. Today I have been blogging for 2 years! Before I start tearing up about where the past two years have hurried themselves off to... allow me to profusely thank you for following along with me & this crazy blogging journey that I am on.

I have to say that when I started blogging in 2011 I had ZERO clue what I was getting myself into. I underestimated the quality of friendships I would form. I failed to comprehend what I would learn about myself. I never dreamed that staying up until the wee hours of the morning teaching myself HTML code would be my idea of a good time.
Most of all, I could have never imagined the community that I would come to treasure here on Here&Now.
So for that I thank each & every one of you for showing up here every day & making me the happiest girl on the planet... literally, I'm floating!
While 26 years of life has taught me that I cannot predict what the future holds, I must tell you, I'm excited about it!
For this photoshoot I wanted to capture me - my favorite dress, the shoes you are most likely to see my wearing, the quirky armadillo belt that I paid way too much for from Kate Spade & love inordinately just as much. Prancing around at one of my favorite Nashville landmarks - the Parthenon.
Oh & I now can say that taking a giant golden balloon number to a tourist hot spot on a beautiful Fall Sunday evening is a social experiment in itself - the questions people ask!
Happy Birthday Here&Now!!!! (how many exclamation points before it gets out of hand?)

Tomorrow I am going to put myself into the Blogger Spotlight, so if you have any burning questions about life, pugs, blogging, fashion, etc. I would be more than happy to answer them! Give it to me!!

I also have to give my new friend Zipporah a gigantic internet smooch for these fabulous photos... this girl is gooooood! (Nashville ladies, bloggers, brides to be, take note of her beautiful blog & photography skilllllz!)

  35. Aw, thank you so much for the blogiversary love! Be prepared for people to tell you they are pretty sure you are older than 1.5.... it was so strange when strangers kept telling me about that while I held the 2. Regardless, I still think everything should be celebrated with giant gold balloons. Also, I think that is the nicest compliment... I have never wanted to change, just get better :)
