Ciao, Chessa! is one year old today. Wowsa.
Lately I've been having this dreadful feeling that life is just passing through my fingers. Do you feel that way? How is it March 23rd already? And, how have I been blogging here for 365 days?
I wasn't sure what I would do with this place when I decided to start. I looked at it as simply another venue for my photography but it has evolved into so much more. I have grown so much as a photographer and as a writer and I think I really found my true voice. One of the reasons why I was hesitant to start this blog was because I felt very wary about "putting myself out there" - I put that in quotes because every time someone asked me why I don't blog, that was the response I gave them.
I really love it here. I have met so many wonderful people via blogging and I have found so much inspiration from all of you. Thank you! I'm excited to see where Chessa! goes and I'm even more thrilled to know that I have all of you by my side for the adventure.
In honor of this first blogoversary I'm having a very special giveaway! One lucky reader will win the chance to choose ANY 8x12* or 8x10* print from my Etsy shop! Yes, you heard (umm, read) right my friends...it is your choice! I'll be announcing the winner next Monday, March 30th.
Here is a (small) preview of what you will find over at my shop:
I wish you all a marvelous day! And, THANK YOU again for everything! xx
