Happy Birthday Blog :-) - Little Rachael Anniversary

Today is my blog's first birthday :-) It's one whole year since I published my very first post on Little Rachael. In some ways, I can't believe it's only been a year - blogging is so much a part of my life now that I can't really remember what I did before it! In other ways, I look back on those first few posts and I remember the excitement and nervousness I felt trying to get the blog off the ground - and it seems like it was only yesterday.

I feel like I've come a long way in the past year. Originally the blog was just for me - I didn't think anyone else would actually read it! The fact that I now have a healthy group of followers and regular readers and comments makes me feel amazing and it only spurs me on to keep going - thank you so so much to everyone who has supported me over the past year and to those of you who keep coming back to comment - I know exactly who you are and it warms my heart every time that I see you've returned - I do this for all of you. :-)

Enough of the gushing ;-) - Here's a look back at Little Rachael over the year:

April - May 2010

June - August 2010

September - December 2010

January-April 2011

I feel quite nostalgic looking back at all these photos - and it's interesting to see how my style has changed over the year, no doubt as a result of the influence and inspiration of blogging and being involved in the fashion blogs of others. It makes me happy :-)

Today has been a LONG day - Luke and I went to The Gadget Show Live in Birmingham. We were up at 6am and it took us 2 hours to get there: we didn't return home until 8.30pm! It's been an amazing day and seeing Jason Bradbury (not to mention Otis!) in the flesh was quite a thrill! haha. I'm exhausted though - an early night for me, I think. I have a lot to sort out tomorrow as we fly to Sorrento on Friday. As I probably wont have time to blog tomorrow, I'll say a sweet goodbye now - See you in a week my dears! Don't forget me in my absence - I'll be back on the 22nd :-)

Until then, Happy Blogging.
