5 years

So, I have just realised I have been blogging for over 5 years. 5 years!?! That's kinda crazy. I remember starting out, and really having no clue what I was doing. It's all down to my friend Charlotte. I owe her so much for convincing me to start a blog. So many wonderful things have happened to me because of this blog.
I remember always wanting pen pals, and through blogger I got pen pals. These pen pals and readers became my friends. Friends who I love and hold dear to me.
Last year was perfect. I met Lina for the first time when she came to stay with me, which was so perfect. Then in the summer I went to America to stay with her, and then to Seattle to meet 6 other bloggers. I had the most amazing and life changing time. Just being in another county with 7 technically 'strangers' and enjoying every moment. Feeling at home, feeling myself, and feeling happy. Sometimes when I think about it all, it makes me feel so grateful and happy. And to all the other people I have met through blogger, all my other friends, who I really hope to meet one day. I cannot wait to get on that plane in July and get back to America, and to see everybody's beautiful faces again.
Even though I do feel I have lost my way with blogging, I am so in love with everything to do with it. Blogging has changed my life.
