Reflecting Back on 13 Years…

This week, almost to the day – marks 13 years of blogging for me!

Thirteen years!



It’s crazy to think I’ve been doing this for well over a decade at this point!

Back in 2009, I had NO IDEA how much an impulse to start sharing online via blogging would change my life for the better!

Fast forward to today – this is my career,  my career – crazy!

From running on online store for almost seven years (back in the mid 2000s) to embarking on my latest passion, creating original abstract artwork  –  this community has truly inspired me SO much.

So today, I want to say THANK YOU!

Thank you for reading, for your feedback and your kind and always constructive comments!

Thank you for your emails, and your questions (which often inspire blog posts!) DMs and re-grams!

Thank you for your time and your support. Thank you!

I’m so grateful to have stumbled across blogging back when I did. (THAT OLD POST IS SO CRINGEY!)

Today I decided to pull five of my very favorite posts from the archives!

I wanted to highlight these five posts again because they’re filled with some really valuable advice and design tips.

If you’re about to get started on a renovation, I highly recommend checking out these five blog posts first.

The world of home decor blogging and social media in general has changed A LOT since 2009 (as I’m sure you’re well aware) and I’m always trying out new ways to inspire and reach new people.

Hopefully, you’re already following along – but if you’re not – you can also find me here:

It’s worth repeating, thanks again for reading and following along!

I clearly had NO idea what I was getting into way back in 2009.

It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot fun.

The encouragement and support I receive from you is really what keeps me going:)

Looking forward to another year of zhushin’!
