Three Year Blogiversary

While Life According to Francesca is only a year old, I've had this blog for three years to the day! I remember the day I started this blog. It was the summer before my senior year of high school and I published my first blog post as I rushed out the door to go to Chili's with my mom. I was wearing a coral long sleeved dolman cropped shirt with black flowy shorts and my Charlotte Russe white bauble necklace. I had had a little bit of a sunburn and I didn't quite have my braces off yet, though they were bound to come off months later. I partially remember this day because I have photos of it, but mostly I remember it because I'm fairly certain that starting this blog was the best decision I made in my entire life.

What started as a blog to talk about makeup turned into, well, whatever we want to call this blog. Fashion, beauty, lifestyle, college, Francesca's ramblings? I feel like the latter describes this blog quite well, as I sort of just do my own thing and hope for the best.

I genuinely don't know what I'd be doing with my time if I didn't have this blog. What would I be writing about? I don't even want to think about how else I'd be occupying my time, if I'm being honest. I've had a blog for as long as I can remember, of all different sorts. I've had a Tumblr for many years and I kept a blog back in middle school before I started high school (one that I still read from time to time to laugh at because it was so horrendous). But this blog...this one was different. I actually cared, it had a point, and I knew it was what I wanted to do.

I've done some things that I'm pretty proud of over the past three years (getting jobs on my own merit, getting straight A's in college, seeing One Direction in the flesh), but I think that the decision to start taking better care of this blog last March might have been one of the best. 

Here's to three more years of blogging!
