Today is the one year anniversary of Storypiece. Wahoo!
I can’t believe I’ve been hanging out here for an entire year. If I had my stuff together, I’d have a giveaway (for you) or cake (for me) or something awesome that says “Let’s Celebrate!” But after the last two weeks of moving this blog, I’m just grateful to still be here.
On my very first post I wrote:
One of my favorite things about our home is that when I look around it, it truly is a reflection of the people that live here. The colors, the decor, and especially the furnishings… they all come with a backstory. Some things we inherited from family or friends, some things we made, and some things are just pure randomness that we couldn’t live without. And I often think… “If only these walls could talk?!”
It is my hope that with this blog that maybe they can. This is a place to discuss the history or journey a piece has taken. And not just in my home, but in yours too. Some items may have a more colorful past than others… but all have a unique beauty because of the story they tell. Thanks for joining me here and welcome to Storypiece!
It took me about three days to get those two paragraphs down and I’m proud to look back and feel exactly the same. But when I wrote that, I had no idea that this blog would become so much more to me.
Over the course of writing 100+ posts, I’ve made an amazing community of friends and been SO encouraged. I’ve seriously laughed, cried and prayed for people that I have not physically met. I’m continuing to let go of what others think of me and to let go of fear.
I’m hugely thankful for this creative outlet.
Thank you for sharing in our story and following on our silly little journey. Are you ready for another year? Me too. Next year there will be cake for sure.
