Happy Friday, lovelies!  Today is such a special day for so many reasons!  I shared earlier this week with you guys that my little brother is getting married on Saturday!  So we kick off the weekend festivities tonight with the Rehearsal Dinner and the most amazing party my mom has planned.  I'm SO excited for both my brother and soon-to-be sister in law and absolutely cannot wait to celebrate with them! 

The other special thing about today is one that I've been working for for quite some time now.  For the past three years, I've put a lot of time, energy, focus, dedication and love into For All Things Lovely and I'm so excited to say that today is my last day at my full-time job!!  {Queue the firworks!}  It's definitely a bittersweet goodbye because I really do love my job and the people I work with, but the time has come to be able to fully devote myself to the blog.  I've balanced both for the past 2 1/2 years and feel like if this is what I really want to do {and it is!}, then now is the time.  I'm almost 26 {just a couple of days!} and ready to dive in head first into the full-time blogging world.  I've had so many late nights, early mornings and busy weekends the past couple of years, so I'm ready for a normal routine again, that's for sure!  

NONE of this would be possible without you guys, my lovely, lovely readers and I'm so thankful for you!  Your sweet comments, encouraging words and support throughout the past three years has been everything and I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I have big plans for my little space on the internet and hope to provide you with amazing content that makes you want to come back and visit each and every day.  Cheers to new beginnings, lovelies!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

  13. So exciting! I have been following your blog for about a year now and always love your posts and instagram photos. You inspired me to start my own blog last year and with a full time job I know how crazy life can be. So happy for you and hopefully sometime soon I can do the same.
