HAPPY BIRTHDAY CRAZY BLONDE LIFE

Wow!  I can't believe that it's been a year since I started Crazy Blonde Life!  It's been a year of incredible joy and incredible growth for me.  When I started the blog, I really had no idea what I wanted to do with it, it has evolved into what it is today because I have followed my heart and my interests.  I have so many ideas and things that I want to share!  Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way!  I am working on improving the blog, being more organized with my posts, improving my photography, coming up with new recipes and fashion ideas!   I also have some exciting design changes that are happening on the blog.  I hope you'll check back every day to see what I'm up to!

On May 3, 2015, I started my first post with this quote by Goethe

Today on May 3 2016, I still believe this quote to be true, so today, I'm beginning again and working to make Crazy Blonde Life Big and Bold!  This is a long post so here we go...

Here are a few of the highlights of the past year!

My first head shot for Crazy Blonde Life - curly hair!  What do you think?

This is a party that was given for me to raise money for the Patricia Bynum Fund, a fund that helps cancer patients pay for everyday expenses when they can't afford them!  Britt is always one of my biggest cheerleaders and she has been on the blog a lot!  Thanks Britt!  Can't wait to see what we do next!
