Happy 2 Year Blogiversary to me! Yippee! This deserves a fun skirt, a bouquet of flowers and a good twirl! Haha. But wow! Where did the time go? It feels like it was just yesterday I was taking photos with nothing but my iPhone in a park in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and trying to figure out how to upload them to WordPress, haha.

Thankfully, the photography department has improved a bit since then…and WordPress is a piece of cake these days! Oh, and I’m finally living out my dream of living abroad (but I still love Stevens Point)! It’s really fun to think back to when this blog started…and it’s also really exciting to think about where it’s headed. I know I spent a lot of time reflecting on how this blog started in my past blogiversary post…but for this one, I’m going keep it short and sweet and focus on the present!

For this year’s celebration, I treated myself to some fresh cut flowers, green tea ice cream and a whole lot of Pokemon hunting here in Tokyo. I can’t express how much I love playing that game here. My husband and I honestly sat outside a “gym” for 2 hours with 3 other Team Instinct people we met..battling Pokemon and talking about our lives. It was a great way to spend the day…reflecting on where we came from, where we’re going and making friends who share similar nerdy or random interests along the way!

For such an occasion, I wore all of my favorites…my favorite Machi Footwear heels that I’ve had for ages, my favorite purple lipstick, favorite style of skirt…and I did my favorite thing…twirl like a crazy person in front of a camera in my favorite spot in Tokyo to take photos! Haha. Miraculously, though, these twirling photos turned out super well! I actually had a hard time narrowing it down to the few used in this post…which, if you saw my blooper photos post, you may find hard to believe! Haha.

And brief shout out to this amazing skirt! Seriously, photos don’t do it justice. When I saw the stock photo online and when I actually had the skirt in my hand…I was blown away! It looks SO much prettier in person. I don’t even feel as though my photos do a good job of showing just how dainty and feminine it is. Wearing it was one of the first times I felt like I was dressing like everyone else around here (other than the bright purple lipstick, haha).

    Happy anniversary, you look amazing! I like twirling photos, I loved the skirt and your shoes, too! I would love to try green tea ice cream! Congratulations to Brittney for the giveaway! I tell you, I normally don’t visit travel blogs because of some people’s approach – look at me, I am here, I am there, I went, you didn’t πŸ™‚ This is such a competitive world and this is the kind of competition that I don’t like. But yours I love visiting, because you are not that way. I learn from you, you add loads to my days and that is what makes you and your blog special! Go on living your dreams and up to 2 and more years of blogging! Again, congrats!

    Happy 2 years! You know, I can’t pinpoint exactly when we became online friends! I think we were IG friends before regularly visiting each other’s blogs and such…right or wrong? I know it was BEFORE your 1 year anniversary though!! A bit before, I’d say… Sounds like you had a lovely day celebrating too! XO
