AHHHHH my blog is 3!! (well tomorrow!) 
What better way to celebrate then getting a bunch of balloons and carrying them around the city?
I seriously cannot believe it's been 3 years since I decided to start this blog, It honestly doesn't feel that long so I guess that goes to show that I truly enjoy what I do! I promise I won't get sappy...

My blog has given me so many opportunities and friendships that I am beyond grateful for. If you had told me 3 years ago that I would have the opportunity to work with some of my favourite brands I would have never believed it!  It also seems like yesterday that I first started this blog when I was living in that tiny town that shall not be named haha. I haven't even been in Calgary for a year and I'm SO happy for what my blog has given me since living here. 

My blog is not only a hobby but a full time enjoyment for me and I have to thank each and every one of you for supporting me! I only hope to keep it growing and see what the future holds. Virtual hugs to everyone!

I also have to thank my amazing boyfriend David for always having the BEST patience taking each and every photo. I know my blogger girls can agree that sometimes we are a tad difficult to deal with when it comes to our photos and somehow our guys always take them! You're the best, you really are! I love you so much babe! xo

Thank you!!!!
