Friday Favorites | 3 Year Blogiversary

July 29, 2016

Happy Friday lovelies! Today’s post is a little special to me, because today is Beauty With Lily’s 3rd birthday! I have been thinking about what I wanted to do for the longest time now and since I’ve hosted 2 giveaways back to back, I decided to skip on a giveaway. Instead, I want to share what my favorite things about blogging have been. 

The Creativity 

One thing that I adore is that I get to be creative and do whatever I want on my blog. What just started out as a hobby is now a passion of mine and I’m slowly working towards making it a “job” one day…although blogging does NOT feel like a job or chore to me. I genuinely love it. 

The Experience 

This experience has been nothing but amazing! I’ve learned so much, not only about the internet and writing, but I’ve learned so much about myself. I’ve learned to push myself and work towards my goals without worrying about what others think. I’m also able to talk to people in my day to day life about my blog without worrying about them thinking I’m crazy. Overall, it’s been such a great experience!

My Readers

This past year my blog has grown quite a bit and for that, I am extremely thankful and grateful for my loyal readers. You guys never fail me and stop by and read and comment without fail and are so supportive. Thank you is not enough! I hold a special place in my heart for each and every one of you for helping Beauty With Lily grow day by day! 

The Friendships 

The people I’ve come across thanks to my blog, have become some of my BEST friends…and for that alone, this has been SO worth it and the best thing yet! I talk to my blogger friends more than I do my real friends, I “know” people from all over the world, and I have connections with people that I could possibly never have, had it not been for my blog. If only I could meet every single one of them and give them the biggest hug and thank them personally for helping me when I needed help, for being there for me when I needed a friend and for always being SO supportive and encouraging! 

In all honesty, I could go on and on…but I’ve gotten pretty sappy already, so I’ll stop before it gets worse. šŸ˜‰ 

Thank you ALL for the love, support, encouragement and for the best 3 years! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Beauty With Lily! 

We will be out of town for the next few days, enjoying a little getaway before I go back to work. So I won’t be able to make my usual blog visits, but I’ll try to keep up and I won’t have a post up on Monday either. Taking a short break before the stress of work and everything else begins. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and come follow me on Snapchat – lilyg07

Hi there! Iā€™m Lily, the girl behind Beauty With Lily. I am a real estate agent, nurse, wife, crazy dog mom ā€” to our cute little pup, Charlie ā€” blogger, beauty enthusiast, makeup connoisseur, and your everyday twenty-something southern gal. You'll usually catch me with an iced coffee in tow, an arm full of makeup swatches or behind my computer working (or shopping!) I hope this little space helps you feel beautiful, find your next clothing piece to buy or a place you come to after a long day. I hope you stay awhile. xo - Lily
