I feel like a proud parent. My beloved blog turns 1 year old today, and, my… hasn’t she grown (see here for my first ever post. Bless). I can’t believe how much has changed in a year. I dipped my toes into the blogosphere after reading so many others day in day out, and thinking, really, how hard can it be?! So, turns out, pretty darn hard! But, y’know what… it doesn’t matter. As I’ve said before, {what you fancy} is my creative relief from an oh-so-corporate day job, and it doesn’t matter how exhausted or cross-eyed I am from staring at a computer screen all day, blogging never gets old.
But it’s not just the actual blogging that I love; it’s the community that comes hand in hand. It’s the newfound friendships between like-minded people, the sheer extent of the creativeness that exists out there, the emails, the tweets, the pinning, the instagramming, but most of all, the feeling of ‘this is what I’m meant to do’. Twee, but true. I don’t know what direction it’s headed and where it’ll be this time next year (hopefully with a sister wedding site to keep it company), but if it’s anything like the past year it makes me unbelievably excited. Bring it on. I don’t want to sound all trite or anything, but I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your support, messages, and for visiting my little blog as often as you do. It means so much I can’t even tell you. And finally thank you to my amazing fiancé, who created this site based on my cobbled-together Powerpoint presentation… and still remains bewildered by my love of scatter cushions and “show candles”.

Now, remember those quizzes that you used to email to friends when you were a teenager, with a load of questions all about you? Howzabout a quick fire version. If we’re heading into our second year together, I think we should get to know each other better… (copy and paste into comments, and replace with your answers):

Can’t wait to hear your answers! And thanks so much again, El xx
