Happy New Year, Happy 1 Year

Yes it is 2011! Yes today is the 1 year birthday of Sincerely Shannon!
I don't know which is bigger news?!

Today I am just going to share some highlights from this year of blogging. It has been so fun!To take you back here is a snippet from my very first post. This is why I decided to start a blog in the first place:

Since this is my last year of formal education (insert huge sigh of relief), a TON of new things are coming my way: graduation, job (we hope), apartment, responsibilities, and the great unknown! I don’t want to forget a minute of this exciting time so I’m going to record and share and use this blog to keep family, friends and future followers (again, I’m being hopeful) in the loop. Join me in the ups and downs that come with leaving the college bubble!

Let me address a couple of things in that little excerpt:
I had a fabulous last semester of college (LDOC). I did manage to graduate (Let the Commencement Commence). I got a full time job (Grown Up Girl Job). I started paying my own rent and utilities for my apartment (Home Tour). Did I mention the new responsibilites and the unknowns (Why, Hello There)?

Here are some posts from this year that I'd like to highlight:
a) Shannon Elizabeth Designs- I started my own custom blog creation and graphic design "shop."
b) Cooler Painting: A Detailed Guide was my most viewed post...weird.
c) My Flashback to England post is my personal favorite!
d) Peter and I celebrated 2 years!
e) I celebrated 22!
d) I wrote over 100 posts!

Basically this year flew by! I've enjoyed looking back over my blog's short history (sorry if no one else cares). This year has definitely had it's ups and downs and I'm glad I have my blog to help me remember it all!


  1. Happy first blogoversary! And many, many, more!!!

  2. Happy New Year Shannon! Oddly, I had never read your Cooler Painting post until today. I missed it the first go-round. What a fun, cool tradition! Have a great 2011!

  3. It has been fun sharing bloggy ups and downs with you : ) Your England flashback was my fave too. Are you surprised?

    Happy happy new year!
