It's been seven years since I started plunking away on this little blog. The original title was "Heather's Books" and I had planned to wax poetic most of the time. Except, I'm really not that good at poetry. However, I do write about books a lot.
The early days saw me sharing my wedding plans. That was back before Pinterest existed! I remember scouring the internet for earrings styles, colored heels and wedding music. There was a group of us gals that were getting married around the same time, so we would comment back and forth sharing the woes of wedding planning. Eventually, I settled into my new life as a wife and "Mrs. Southern Bride" was born.
So many of my favorite bloggers have come and gone over the years. Their blogs are now busy collecting dust, or were deleted forever. One in particular had a great influence on my life. She was an independent spirit that wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted in life. I loved her spark. Now, I miss her blog.
There was a point when I wondered why I would even continue blogging. If we are being honest, it's a dying art on many levels. With social media running rampant, it's hard to find time to keep up with everything. Then, I think about all my blogging friends and how much you have come to mean to me. It may not be the popular thing to do, but when have I ever followed fads? No very often.
So, Mrs. Southern Bride marches on. Meeting new people. Letting me share pieces of my story. And I'll be ever grateful for this outlet in my life.
