March 6th marked the 1-year anniversary of my blog!
I missed it by a few days. How did I forget?! Really, Ally? I cannot believe it has already been a year since I began this blog. Time flies so fast.
I originally began blogging because I was so inspired by the blogs I read already. A majority of the blogs I read are fashion-related, and I was just itching to start my own. Two vauge-ish goals I had when starting Sunny Sweetheart were: (1) post at least once a day and (2) do outfit posts.

It took a while to get into the swing of things and find my writing style for the first few weeks. I think most personal bloggers go through that beginning phase of finding their own unique style.
After many sporadic posts - I only wrote once in August - I started posting more regular outfit photos in September 2011. While I didn't post every day for a while, I posted much more often than before. Blogging became an exciting few minutes of my day where I could unwind and focus my thoughts. In February of this year, I decided I wanted to do 29 posts - one for each day of the month! I made a little goal to get through one post a day for the month, and am so happy I did! I really enjoy posting daily and want to keep it up!
I did two outfit posts over the summer, but this is from my first semi-regular one:
|I MISS BEING THIS TAN. Winter, you suck sometimes.|
I can't believe how much my blog has evolved in its first year. It is crazy to see how my writing changes and improves, and looking back and seeing what I was up to on a certain day. I did a 2011 reflection post and a favorites post at the end of the year, and even in these past few months, it has still evolved a little! Oh, and I have some new ideas and goals up my sleeve, by the way. So stay tuned. ;)
