A year ago today, I posted my very first post, having no clue what I was doing and feeling a little silly but also really, really excited. Wishes & Reality has been the creative outlet I didn’t even know I needed. It has allowed my to showcase my passion, and learn far more than I could have ever hoped. This little blog has afforded me opportunities and experiences I never thought I could be part of. And I have made so many wonderful friends and connections in this little online world. But Wishes & Reality would never have become what it is now without your support. Your comments, likes and follows make my day and have allowed this past year to surpass all of my expectations!

I am also especially thankful for my family’s support. This blog would not exist if not for my husband’s and children’s tireless patience. They have been there to support and motivate me along this journey and shared in the successes as well. Their pride in me means the world. My hubby also takes most of the photos and has not only taken the time to be my photographer, but learn so much about photography in general just to help me achieve my vision. I am one very lucky girl.

For the first time, I have found my creative voice and this blog is refection of not only that but my true self. It has given me a new sense of confidence and allowed me to grow in ways that I truly needed. Blogging is a compilation of so many things and while I have mastered none of them, the journey of learning, of connecting with you, has left me happier and more fulfilled than I ever have been. Here’s to year 2 and I hope you will continue to follow along!!!
