1 Year Blog Anniversary

October 30th marks the one year anniversary of Lilies and Life!!  That first year flew by and I had so much fun sharing my life with you!  I started Lilies and Life because I wanted a creative outlet and I felt that sharing our home renovations and other aspects of my life would be fun and may inspire others!  

Over the past year, I have learned that making the space you live in beautiful and unique to your style can improve your mood and give you a sense of peace!  Your home is where you spend the majority of your life, why shouldn’t it be beautiful?  

I have met so many other creative, kind and talented bloggers throughout this journey they have inspired me and become my blogger friends 🙂  The blogging community is so amazing and encouraging and I feel very thankful to be apart of the blogging world.

Thank you to my husband, David, my sister, Julie (for the proofreading and support :)), the rest of my family, friends, and followers!  I really hope you have enjoyed my posts and following along with making our house a home!  Keep following along for more DIY projects, crafts, home decor ideas and lots lots more 🙂

To celebrate my one year blog anniversary I am going to do a Round-Up of my top five favorite blog posts from Lilies and Life!
