I Got A Blog Award! (AND A NEW CAMERA!)

Oh, wow I am so very flattered and delighted to have received a blog award from the lovely Carys of La Ville Inconnue. Seriously, this girl is as sweet as honey and looks like she stepped right out of the 1940's. Her vintage outfits seem effortless, and she always has the perfect accessories and hairstyle to match, too. Oh, and her photos. Her photos! Don't even get me started on how gorgeous they are! Please, do check out her blog. She is a true charm and you won't be disappointed.
For this blog award, the blogger must say what she loves most about her blog, and it made me think, "where in the world do I even start!?"
Without this blog, I wouldn't be, well me. Last November I started this blog thinking that it would never be anything but something for my eyes only to see. My photos were taken inside my house, and every single post had zero comments for months. Gradually my blog started to become noticed by people and I gained a follower here, and a follower there. People began commenting, I began making blog friends that understood me unlike most of the people in my life. This blog... it's my life. I've found so many inspiring and kind people that I wouldn't have ever met otherwise. The support you gals give is mind blowing. That is definitely one thing I love about my blog: the lovely people who support me and encourage me everyday to keep doing "my thing." I know 41 followers isn't making my blog one of the top blogs out there, but I don't care. What I love about my blog is getting to know each of my followers and replying back to each comment. I always told myself that when I got a blog someday, I would try and reply back to every single person, no matter what. I would rather have a bunch of people that I know personally than a ton of people who are just sort of... there.
Secondly, this blog has helped me start to find and define who I am. In the past I have started diaries to record my feelings, but I would give up after writing only a few entries. With my blog, it is amazing to look back and see what I was feeling at a certain time. Like when I first got my license, it's amazing to look back at how excited and happy I was! Or the time when I got my first negative comment to see how hurt I was, and the feelings that were coursing through my body. I look back at some of my first outfits, and think "why did I wear that!? I would never wear that now!" But that's the magical thing. I've finally started becoming who I was meant to be all my life and really develop my personal style.
Here are the ten blogs that I pass this award on to. Each and every single blogger out there deserves this award because each one has something special that makes it individually sparkle.
P.S. I GOT MY CAMERA TONIGHT! Yess! Pictures should be up very, very soon :)
P.S.S. I decided that I am going to get the Modcloth dress for Homecoming! Thanks for all of your lovely and thoughtful opinions!
