Favorite Things...One Year Later

One Year AnniversaryOne year ago today I entered into the blogging world and published my first post on Leslie Reese. I had been looking for a way to share the things I love to do and blogging seemed like the perfect way to do that. I enlisted the help of a graphic designer and while she was busy designing the layout of my blog, I was figuring out how to work with WordPress, and on May 24th the blog was launched. It has been a journey and the past year has been quite a learning experience. I have really enjoyed taking photos, trying new recipes and visiting fun places. I love blogging and one hundred posts later, I can say it's been an awesome year! Since today is Friday, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite posts from the past year. I've chosen one from each month since the blog was launched. I hope you enjoy looking back with me. Happy Friday!

I appreciate each one of you for stopping by, following along and giving me your feedback. I have truly enjoyed writing about some of my favorite things and it's been fun sharing those adventures and stories with you. From recipes to baby showers you have joined in the fun and stayed in touch. I am grateful for the support. If there is one thing I hope to do with this blog, it's to inspire you to celebrate the little things in life. So often they are the things that matter most and while so many people are busy worrying about things that won't be important a year from now, those little things you do will be remembered for years to come. So live your life, have fun and find something to celebrate every day! I'll be here doing the same!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Leslie xo
