THREE YEARS like waaahht // how I've changed


so IDK HOW but I've been blogging for three years - as of today. Fourteen year old me did the first post back when my bloggy home was called Writing For His Glory. Since then I changed but have not strayed from that title. Now, I'm the barefoot gal. And gosh, it's so me.

 I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't started blogging! For one, I have meet with SO MANY blogger friends. Like -- do I start a list? or waht.

Clara (YOU AND I ARE GOING TO MEET PROMISE)
Amanda (^ so same okay?)
Emma Jane (EEP love this girl so much (and guys she just started a new blog) HUGS)
Aaliyah (i know i know, it was really instagram BUT STILL BRO)
Abbiee (and she lets me call her that even tho its really Abbie) AKA the waffle queen
Micaiah (someday we shall fangirl together in person)
Eden (dude you and I will always be busy yet we can always connect again LOVE THIS)

I could go on and on. All of you have connected with me and I with you. We've got inside jokes, you've probably heard my nutty laugh or that I turn into a pumpkin at midnight. BUT GUYS SOMETIMES I JUST WANNA CRY BC I FEEL SO BLESSED AND I AM *wipes tear*

And, the best part? I know it's not over. It can't be. Blogging is SO for me. I get a thrill out of editing the post to be just so, lining up the photos, and then typing away a story that you guys just HAVE TO HEAR while I listen to my newest favoritest (heheeehee) soundtrack.

Basically, from October 27, 2013 to October 27th, 2016 -- I've been blogging almost consistently. It's like this place is a huge journal of pictures and stories and friends. <3333

I propose a toast *gives out soda cans* to another 3 years and to my blogging besties. *grins cuz you're all my friends*

when did you find my blog?
wanna another three years??
