This is day 366.

1 year ago today, I started this blog.

I can't believe how much I've grown in that timespan!  Let's reflect.

Well first of all there's the major life changes.  In the past year, we've bought a house and gotten a second cat, to name a few.  (Yes I include a second fur-baby as a major life change).  But those aren't why I started this blog.

I started this blog to help me figure out what I want out of my life and guess what!  It's helping!  I still don't have the answers to the universe (shockingly), however I'm happier in my career than I have been in a long time (partially because I'm getting to do a lot of work for any corporate designer's DREAM client *coughgooglecough*).  And although I haven't figured out long term life plans, I have ideas and more importantly inspiration.

Inspiration.  That was my biggest issue before this blog.  I had lost my inspiration and became jaded with design @26.  Thankfully, through this blog, I opened my eyes to the wonderful world of social media's connection to design and got INSPIRED.  I am now severely addicted to reading design-related blogs, pinterest, and following design topics on Twitter.  Design excites me again!

So a BIG Thank You to those of you who keep coming back here to read my latest rants or see my latest projects, and Thank You to all the design bloggers and tweeters who have inspired me.

I CANNOT wait to see what the next year brings!
