2015 Round up & Reflections

2015 Round up & Reflections

When they say time flies when you are having fun, it is the absolute truth.  I feel like I blinked and the year was over & I truly can say that I had a good year.  If someone were to ask me what was the biggest thing I learned in 2015 it would be that I learned to love myself more and embrace everything that I am. I grew in the area of confidence and .  I have found that people can tell you that you are amazing 1 million times over, but if you don’t believe that, those words don’t mean a thing.  I went from relying on the praises of man to relying on the confidence of what God said I was and speaking it out loud until I began to believe it.  I am still working on this, but I have come a mighty long way.

I branched out into blogging again this year after having two blogs that were not successful.  I remember saying to the Lord that I didn’t want to start something that I couldn’t finish, something that would fail.  I had major fear of failure. I stepped out and have been graced with favor I could never have foreseen.  There were major moments of discouragement and lack of drive along the way, but I pushed through.  I remember setting a goal of blogging every single week for the entire year and that is what kept me going.

Over the course of the year I have had the privilege of working with 15 different brands/boutiques/labels.  I have developed lasting partnerships that truly cannot be bought and I have met some of the most incredible people along the way.  I feel like God has really done exceedingly, abundantly above all that I could ask think or imagine (eph.3:20,21).  I am believing that this is just the beginning! I am full of expectation and excitement for 2016.

Below I have comprised a compilation from my favorite posts of 2015.  I want to say a very special thank you to everyone who has faithfully read my blog and cheered me on along the way.  Blogging/fashion is my creative outlet and I am so grateful to be able to share this part of my life with you.  Thank you for reading! Much love,

Ruthie xo
