3 Years!!  It's so hard to believe, but I started For All Things Lovely 3 years ago!  Never in my wildest dream did I think that this little creative space of mine would turn into a full-time job and something that people would  actually follow.  When I first started blogging, I only knew one thing: my genuine love for fashion.  I had no idea what  I was getting myself into or that I could grow my blog to where it is today.  I've learned so much in the past three years, both personally and professionally, and I wouldn't change a thing.  Every difficult day lead to motivation, every unknown into patience and every challenge into growth.  I've learned so much simply from experience and tried my best to change and evolve my blog as I have changed and evolved as a person.  I want For All Things Lovely to be a place where you can find a little sparkle and leave inspired to see the beauty in every aspect of your life.  I decided to make today's post all about a few of my favorite things: feminine style, pink and macarons.  One of my very first accomplishments in blogging was when this photo was taken on this exact street in Charleston and published in Lucky Magazine, so I wanted to go back to the same spot to celebrate!  I wouldn't be able to do any of this without the support of each and every reader.  You will never know how much your encouraging words mean to me and it's definitely what keeps me motivated and driven every single day.  So, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your continued support and love! 
Since today is one big celebration, I thought it would be the perfect time to give back to my lovely readers.  Enter the rafflecopter below to win a few of my favorite things and see my instagram page for details on extra entires.  Good luck!
Congrats to Sarah Morris for winning the 'My Favorite Things' giveaway!  I'll be emailing you today with shipping details! Thanks so much to everyone who entered! xo.
