One Thousand // loving lemons givewaway

This is my 1000th post! I'm pretty excited.
I first realized I would reach 1000 this year way back in January. I thought a lot about how I would celebrate such a milestone.

In the end, I decided to use up an entire box of sparklers trying to write '1000' perfectly in the night sky, a testament to my never ending patience when it comes to taking my outfit photos.

I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses, that I first saw on another blogger, and was then lucky enough to find on super clearance at TJMaxx. Along with my new handbag, the most expensive bag I've ever purchased, and I did so with money I earned from this blog. It's a symbol of how much this blog has become a part of my life, and changed me.

And finally, a new pair of earrings from Loving Lemons, who is helping me celebrate with a giveaway for you! Pick out your favorite jewel from Loving Lemons and enter via the Rafflecopter at the bottom of the post!

Thank you all so much for reading and helping to make my blog the amazing entity it has become!
