Happy 1000th Blog Post + Towerhouse Favorites

When I first started writing this blog, I was coming out of a rough year, maybe one of the most difficult ones of my life. I needed an outlet and blogging became one of the most unlikeliest of sources (shout out to Amy Hauber at SLU for introducing me to blogging). While other blogs that started up around the same the time as mine have grown into a lot more (congrats, Mackenzie of Design Darling and Carly of The College Prepster on both of your successes and I love the new look on TCP blog - longtime fan over here!) mine never really took off. I still kept writing and here I am, many years later, even with an almost 2 year hiatus, still plugging away and pursuing other dreams and a bigger project with an updated look. In honor of my 1000th post, I decided to give myself a pat on the back and do a roundup of a few of my personal favorites on towerhouse (née Sparles of Life, Princess Notes). Note: These are not the most popular posts, but I can always share those too. 

One of my favorite series I wrote was my party planning series...and one of my favorite themes was the Marie Antoinette Birthday Party. I still want to be the girl with the most cake!

Honestly, I've been plotting my future home since I was maybe 4 or 5 whenever we built a pillow fort, but I've narrowed down my favorite looks and the Blue + White decor post sums it up fairly well. But don't worry, I'm still putting together inspiration for my leopard room!

I can't help but smile when I look back at these old pictures of my family when we were younger. We may look cute, but we were really monsters running around! I'm so lucky to have the family I do.

As a magazine addict it's rare for an editorial to stand out to me, especially after all of these years later. This post features maybe one of my favorite shoots of all time.

My roundup wouldn't be complete if I didn't get a teeny tiny bit personal on my blog. While I have never shied away from sharing my opinion and thoughts, I rarely did a post with solely personal facts or Q&As. Here was one of my only attempts and it still makes me smile. Full disclosure, this is an newer picture of me, I am not reposting a picture of my in college. #foreverawkward

Thank you for sticking around through all of my spelling errors, growing pains (personal + virtual), valley girl speak, blogging breaks, and openly snobby and occasionally bratty posts. Much love!
