Hi everyone!! Today is a BIG day (for me anyway 🙈😂), three years ago yesterday I created Elsie LMC! 😲 (I just got crazy visions of me as the scientist who created Frankenstein saying “IT’S ALIVE” 😂). It was in the early hours of today that I first uploaded a post! I honestly don’t know what I did before blogging came into my life, things have become much more vivid (thanks to now having a strong way to store memories) and more of that ALIVE I mentioned just now because of all you lovely people I have met along the way 💕
Over the years I have written 438 posts (including this one) and I have no idea where it’s all come from. Blogging has unlocked something within me, a way to allow my personality to shine and release all of these words ✨ and I never ever want it to end. I want to blog till I drop! 😂
If you’d have shown pre-blog me all of this she would have loved it but never truly believed it was her/something she could do and be a part of as I have built up a lot of confidence through this and your support. As cringe as it sounds I feel like blogging came into my life at the right time, I needed an escape from chronic pain + life in general and I still do as things are really tough and I hate to say it but my surroundings are quite toxic at the moment. But I will stay strong and keep those I love going until things fall into place.
It feels like a spark of magic was with me the night I started back in 2016 with an idea in my head and the love of my mum who gave me the push I needed to hit download on the WordPress app and upload my first post and as I sat there constantly saying “should I?” my head was full of worries. If I could go back to that day I wouldn’t change a thing.
I still feel that spark of magic and every now and then the embers flicker into a flame and I feel like anything is possible because I never even knew that this was.
Thank you for staying with me on this whirlwind of a journey, the friends I have made so far mean the world to me and I feel so grateful to have crossed paths with you as that’s gotta be a one in a million thing right? Let’s wish on an emoji star that we will meet one day 😣⭐ It will come true. Until (plus probably including) then I will continue to annoy the living daylights out of you! 😉 Those that are new here have been warned before walking into this relationship you lucky things 😂
As this blogging year ends with a bang 💥 I look forward to all that is to come in our 4th year and hope to make memories, achieve goals and embark on loads of new adventures! 💫
PS. In the past I have celebrated my blogiversary by doing 12 days of Xmas but this year I’m taking a break. I will still be sharing festive posts though and you can read past additions of 12 days of Xmas from 2017 and 2018 by clicking on the links which will take you to the folders! 🎄
Thank you for just being you 😍😂 Take care and have a wonderful day ❤️
