And this morning, I was looking back through the archives, and I couldn't help but smile when I came across some of the awesome posts that I'd forgotten about...
baby-fever posts, including this animal nursery, this hysterical baby video, favorite baby names and popular names by state.
Beauty bonanzas, like this lipstick how-to, ombre lips, summer nail trends, the beauty of freckles and holiday nails and pastel nails.
Open Letters, like My Letter To Valentine's Day, wannabe hipsters, jealousy, younger guys, first crushes, temptation, my depression, the Class of 2012, Seventeen magazine, Marissa Mayer, my father, The View and to myself.
Letters To My Future Husband, where I daydreamed about things like the wedding proposal, the big disability talk, that moment, my making the first move, important questions and my hospital fantasy.
Love Lounge topics like those little lies we tell ourselves, before-marriage questions, relationship must-haves, romantic gestures, being single, our love of fictional characters, the Mrs. Robinson stigma, wacky dating advice, virginity, regrets and the quarter-life crisis.
MEMOS TO MEN, including feeling those sparks, frustrations of the friend zone, types of dating, evil cheating, marriage mistakes and the Don Draper Syndrome.
Mad Men wedding, mugshot wedding, beautiful civil unions, the Royal Wedding, country fair wedding, treehouse wedding and a Bohemian wedding.
fashion, like colorful slippers, funny tees, Children With Swag, dresses and my love of polo shirts.
design inspiration, like color-coded flowers, illustrated lunch bags, vintage save-the-dates, Web site made of chocolate, fairytale posters and brass animal figurines.
Dream Home inspiration, like world map wallpaper, space bedroom, indoor swings and barn-style bedrooms.
Dream Vacation inspiration, such as glamping, Tunnel of Lights, reading hotels and clifftop towns.
food, like triple chocolate brownies, banana bread bars, mac 'n cheese cups and my grandma's famous almond cookies.
sponsors and shop owners, like Julie Ann Art, Delezhen, Twenty Pages, Lilac Bijoux, Radiant Cosmetics, KOKOON and Umba Box (thanks to all my amazing sponsors and for supporting the sponsors that help make So About What I Said possible!)
My disability. Posts such as my disability top ten, disability debate, storyboarding my life, dating and disabilities, disability bingo, my guest post for Glamour magazine and why disabled women can be sexy.
Whew! What a full five year! You can catch up on any posts you may have missed here, and one last thing...
THANK YOU, FRIENDS!!!! This blog wouldn't be where it is today without your love, support and encouragement. Heck, I doubt I'd be where I am today without your awesome influence in my life. I love you all so much and just want to invite you all to a huge dance party. Let's have an e-party, shall we? Thanks again, and here's to five more amazing years!! xoxo
