My oh my, what a year it has been! It is blowing my mind that Simply Kendall Rose has been up and running for one whole year! After much internal debate and doubt I started my blog January 5, 2014 and haven't looked back since (well that's almost true). Taking the leap of faith to start a blog, let alone leaving it open for the public to read it, has to be one of the most terrifying steps I have ever taken. I honestly had no idea what joy a blog could bring me. Through out this past year blogging and writing have without a doubt become my biggest passions in life.
This blog has opened many doors for me, has given my life direction, and has provided me with amazing opportunities, including attending a blog conference put on by some of my most favorite bloggers, being able to collaborate and work with some great brands, and so much more. But the best part of it all has been the community that I have gained through out this whole experience. Blogging has given me the opportunity to connect with some of the most wonderful ladies all over the world. Women who inspire, encourage, and keep me laughing on a daily basis. I have realized that (although I am not always the best at keeping connections alive) the community is what makes it all worthwhile. What started out as a fun hobby has turned into something so meaningful and near to my heart.
I never could have imagined all the love and support I have received from every single one of you! My words can't even begin to describe how appreciative I am to you all. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart and more. I am beyond grateful and enthused to have you on this journey with me and I am so incredibly thrilled to see where 2015 takes me!
Below are some of my favorite blog posts from this past year!
Happy Birthday dear blog! Here's to many, many more!
