So I have to tell you guys something. I made myself a new blogging/school resolution. It seems that when I don't have pictures to share... I don't blog. I started this blog to document my life for myself, which turned into documenting what I was wearing, which turned into all of you amazing followers and a lot of amazing feedback I never imagined. I didn't go into blogging for the comments/followers. I went into it so I could look back months later and remember exactly where I was in life when I blogged a post. Last year, being so busy with school meant days and sometimes *weeks* without blogging because I didn't have pictures to post. But that meant so many undocumented random runs to Albertson's at 1AM to buy tampons with Kaleb, hikes on Saturdays, trips to the hot springs, downtown exploring, nights and days trapped inside due to -25 degree weather, and the random spontaneous adventures everywhere from mountains to the 11th floor study lounge. If I regret anything about last year beyond a not so brilliant gpa in the first semester, it's not writing and taking pictures and posting them to look back on. I've always wanted this blog to continue to be something beyond just what I happen to be wearing on a given day, so my goal for the year is to do just that.

This year, whether or not I have "outfit photos", I will post and I will talk and it might mean a lot less of outfit blogging, but it will mean a lot more documenting and a lot more me. I'm not saying I'm never going to post what I'm wearing, but during those tough weeks, it might not be regular. It might be those random train of thoughts I have past midnight in the library. This is my forewarning :)

I'm excited to hear all about your life more in the coming year! :) As much as I love your gorgeous photos, I really really love reading about everything that's going on with you. I'm sure there will be the people who just comment "nice pictures!!!!!!" and then don't even mention anything about all that you wrote, but really, it will most definitely be worth it to be able to look back on the records of all of your shenanigans :)

What an awesome idea! It can be like your online scrapbook.
But I really do think it's a great idea and will be fun for you to post and remember the good times - and for us to live vicariously through your college shenanigans! :P

What a great and inspiring resolution to make! I definitely started my blog as a way to document and remember my life as it goes by, and this is a great reminder to do just that! :D

I absolutely LOVE. like LOVE. this resolution. I am definitely going to try this because I was the exact same way! I won't post unless I have outfit pictures or good pictures from that day. I need to start taking my camera everywhere with me and start doing personal posts instead of being like one of the "big dogs" and spitting out posts like a generator. thank you so much for inspiring me to do this! i can't wait to see more from you love!

I love that aspect of blogging, it's like a journal of our lives we share with the world. I look forward to these you-infused posts :)
