One Year Blogiversary


 
One year.... HOLY BANANAS ONE YEAR?!? Wow! I can't believe it.
 
 
Time really does fly, one year ago my sister helped me set up this little corner of the internet and I began to write my first post.
 

 
I remember a year ago feeling out of place, most of my friends stopped playing with dolls and leaving that part of their childhood behind them, but I didn't. I never lost my love for dolls, and I don't think I ever will.
 

I'm so thankful that I didn't give dolls up just to fit in, because then I would never have met you.
 
 
I've made so many friendships that I'm so thankful for. You all have been so amazing and accepting, I can't even tell you how blessed I am to have you all.
 
 
I even became pen-pals with The Human! Which has been literally so awesome!
 
 
The ADU family has grown so much, and I don't mean just in dolls.
 
 
But in people, the fact that you all take the time out of your day to read, follow, and comment on my blog is so amazing to me, and I love reading the amazing posts you all come up with too.
 
 
I've watched some amazing bloggers and friends leave the doll blogging world this year, which has been really hard.. But I've seen some amazing ones enter too! And I can't wait to see more doll lovers start blogs in the future! 
 
 
I also won the Paisley Award for the best photo stories! It blew my mind that you all would nominate me and vote for me! Thank you all so much!
 
 
So I guess what I'm trying to say in this mushy post filled with my cringe worthy old photos is, thank you.
 
 
Thank you for being the amazing community you are.
 
 
Thank you for all the comments, follows, and for just reading my blog. It would be nothing without you.
 
 
Thank you for helping me believe in my writing.
 
 
Thank you for sticking with me even when it was hard to post.
 
 
Thank you for being my friends :)
