Five Years - Blogiversary!

Today marks five years since the first blog post on Fashionably Kay! I cannot believe that this little hobby of mine that I started during fashion school has turned into my now full-time business. I still remember sitting at my college apartment reading the blog Sincerely Jules (who is still one of my biggest idols!) and thinking "I want to do this". So I sat on the couch for what felt like 12 hours straight and created this little space of mine on the web. I am so grateful for every step of the way. It has been a slow but rewarding ride these past five years! 

This past year has helped me grow personally and professionally. I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be the best year yet for Fashionably Kay and I couldn't be doing this without any of you. All of my readers are the best and your support means the world to me! 

I have the best support team behind me including my other half, Alex and also my mom. My mom has helped me since day one taking my photos for me and meeting me once a week to take my outfit shots. For those of you who don't know, my talented mama runs her own photography company and kills it!!! She is so talented and I am forever grateful that she chooses to take time out of her hectic schedule to help me follow my dreams. My best friend Kaitlynn (who has recently started her blog this year, YAY!) helps me almost daily with turning all of my crazy thoughts into real visions and takes so many photos for me! She has been a rock this past year and she knows how much that means to me.

I've learned so many things throughout the last five years and one of the biggest things I've taken away from this journey is to never let fear stop you from getting what you want. I took the biggest leap of faith leaving my full-time job last February for good and it has been on the best decisions I've ever made. I would have never been able to do it without Alex. He has always given my the confidence that I could conquer anything and has stood by my side even through the tough times. I love you babe!

Everyone who I have met through this journey has changed my life for good. All the other blogger gals (I love this community and all of YOU!), the PR girls, all the brands who believe in me and most importantly all of my wonderful readers... you guys are what makes this community real and make this journey worthwhile! 

I shared this quote on my last blogiversary but it still means just as much to me and is so inspiring!  "Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway." -Earl Nightingale
