Year 1 of this blogging journey was about searching. Looking for my voice. Trying to find what I had to say that was different from the thousands of other bloggers out there and putting it into something that I felt also represented me.
Year 2 has been all about growth. I’ve grown as a person, as a writer, a photographer and in innumerable other ways. I’ve seen the support from the blogger community in New York go from non-existent — mostly because I was too afraid I wouldn’t fit in — to finding some of my new best friends in the city.
This has gone from something I did because I was looking for an outlet, to something I truly can be proud of. Something I am happy to put my name on and something that has opened so many doors for me.

Readers, I cannot thank you enough for your support, love, and kind words. I wouldn’t have made it this far without you. You make this labor of love (and the more than occasional late nights) entirely worth it. I’m excited to continue on this incredible journey with all of you, and see what Year 3 has in store!
