The 100th

    The day has finally arrived, the 100th!  Cheers to writing my 100th post.  This is a huge milestone.  I have to admit, I never really thought that one day I would join the blogging world.  I am thankful to those who suggested that I should and encouraged me to do so.  I am very grateful to everyone of you, who follow my blog and read my posts, your support means the world to me!   It has been an incredible journey diving into the world of blogging.  I am still learning about blogging everyday.  I aim to write the best that I can.  To run with my creativity and keep the content engaging and interesting.  My hope is that my posts will inspire.  When I first started this blog, just over a year ago, I never dreamed that it would reach the people that is has.  It was scary, the thought of putting myself out there, sharing my writing, photos, ideas, and creativity with the world.  I chose to write about something I …

Champagne + Polariod’s

I have found that one of the best ways to house all my keepsakes and the beautiful memories they are linked to, is by repurposing boxes, such as shoe boxes or even perfume gift set boxes (as in the case of my keepsake box). If you love to hold on to cards, letters, postcards, concert tickets and photos or whatever items you hold dear as a keepsake treasure …
