Last week was a week of craziness, ice storms and power outages but I am sooo happy to be back. Today, I just wanted to touch base on a milestone that happened last week during my absence. On February 10, Chic Brown Bride celebrated it’s one year Blogiversary! That’s right a year ago on that date I made my first blog post.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already, but I guess that old saying is true. “Time flies when you’re having fun.” When I first started this blog I had no idea what joy it would bring to my life. I had been toying with this idea for well over a year and I was nervous and I didn’t even think anyone would read it. I just knew I wanted to do it, that I HAD to do it. I wanted to showcase and bring positive imagery of women of color who were celebrating love and life. I wanted to celebrate our keen sense of fashion, while also spotlighting small business owners and vendors. The premise of this blog has not changed, if anything it has grown and I’ve become more passionate about it. A year ago, I just wanted to help others who were getting married see faces that looked like them. But this blog, has given me so much joy and pushed me into a career of planning destination weddings and honeymoons. I want to thank every reader, every vendor and every person who has contributed to making the first year of this site a success; I have some great things in store for this year (including a rebrand later on this year 🙂 ) so the best is yet to come!
