Something to Celebrate

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope everyone's had a lovely day thus far. Today, I have something to celebrate....

Any guesses yet?

It's my first BLOGIVERSARY!

That's right, a year ago this month, I created Laurel Lane as a place to share my life and my strife (I was dealing with the emotional impact of infertility in my life.) A year later, so much has changed! I've found a way to be incredibly happy despite my infertility. I've gotten much better at designing my own blog layout. My family got military orders and moved to Arizona. I started dating my best friend. And most recently I moved from Virginia to Charlotte with the love of my life.

I am so excited that the whole family participated in this little shoot to celebrate my blogiversary. Our family may be small, but it sure is filled with lots of cuddles and happiness. I can't wait to see what the next year brings my (and our) way. I hope you follow along on this adventure with me!

I'm linking up with the Hope Engaged photo shoot link up party today. I'll be posting a creative photo session every month on the 15th and hope you do too!

xoxo, Laura

PS. Since it is my blogiversary, I want to focus on my blog a little bit and most importantly I want your feedback! What posts do you like most and want to see more of? My stories about living with unexplained female infertility, my project life layouts, lifestyle pictures, diy projects, photo shoots? Whatever it is that you come here for, please let me know so I can be sure to share more of it! Thanks so much!

    1. Hey Katie, thank you so much! It took a really long time to get to where I am but I'm so grateful for the journey! I am so much more of the kind of woman I want to be now than I ever would have been had I not gone through so many trials :D

      And thank you for hosting the link party, I look forward to it now! I started thinking about this month's theme and shoot LAST MONTH. It's so exciting to share creative things with other people :)

      xoxo, Laura

    1. Thank you so much Jessah! I've made a really strong effort to change my state of mind in the last year. Sometimes you can't change your circumstances (infertility) but it's so important that we find a way to keep going despite those circumstances XD
