6 YEAR Blogiversary!


Wow, guys.  I just can't even believe it: October marked my SIXTH blogging anniversary!  I published my very first blog post on October 14, 2012. (You can read it here if you'd like a chuckle and hopefully appreciate how far I've come, ha!)

I will admit, sometimes I've become discouraged with blogging and social media, and there have been moments when I have felt like I don't measure up or that I'm not doing as well as I should be. However, as I look at very old posts... I realize how much I've grown and learned SO MUCH in the past six years.

Who knew I'd meet friends all over the world?  Who knew my vintage-intercultural fashion would develop and help me work through who I am as a TCK? Who knew it would help me land my dream job in the US Air Force and give me skills to bring to my team?

All from simply being willing to start something and put it out there, hoping the world would take notice.

I appreciate those of you that have given me advice, promoted me on your own platforms, and collaborated with me in creative endeavors.  Thank you to those of you that have left comments, engaged in discussion, and inspired many of my posts with your own brilliance. 

Every comment, share, like, and retweet has helped this little blog gain momentum and grow.  Thank you!  You have helped make this blog what it is!

  1. Oh, Sugar, you are just as cute as a bug in that picture! So glad that I recently found your blog; it has been such an encouragement to me. I live in a small rural community and have yet to meet many others who share my love for vintage clothing and life style. I'm so glad you've kept at it!

    1. Aw, well thanks, Sam! I was in a similar place when I started wearing vintage, and another blogger encouraged me in just the same way. Keep on keeping on! It's fun being different!

  2. Congratulations! It is a huge achievement to keep up with anything for so long, and I know how tough blogging (especially when sometimes it feels like no one is listening anymore) can be. It is really cool to have a record of these last 6 years in blog form too :)
