1 Year Anniversary Party

My Life Well Loved-Heather Brown

It’s hard to believe it has now been OVER a year since I launched My Life Well Loved. I have been blogging for 5 years now and launched this latest blog on my own 11/11 (my birthday!) in 2013. In the months leading up to the blog anniversary, I thought I might want to do something fun and intimate for some of the supporters of the blog. As I started brainstorming with Meredith of Bustle Gowns, the party continued to evolve and grow into a celebration of love and an outpouring of my gratefulness to all those around me who have made MLWL a possibility. I wish that I could have invited every single blog reader to the party but unfortunately, we all couldn’t QUITE fit into Bustle. 😉

Here’s the deets since y’all couldn’t all join. I wanted you to at least feel like each of you were a part. My sweet friend and photographer Magen Davis took all these beautiful images so that I’ll always remember the details of this beautiful evening.
