I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.”

Martha Washington

Almost a year ago (my official blog anniversary is April 7! – stay tuned for an exciting post!) an enthusiastic Chicago girl hit the “publish” button, and I’m so grateful that I did just that. Ever since that day my little space of mine has taken me to such wonderful places, from meeting new and exciting people to fashion shows and networking opportunities that I will never forget! I’m beyond grateful for all of YOU because you have not only encouraged me to strive for more, but you have encouraged me to start my own business as well. My jewelry designs have been so successful because of YOU, and I simply cannot THANK YOU all enough! Hence today’s post is about YOU and the pure joy of happiness you all bring to me. Happiness, which I’ve learned, does not come from how many followers you have on Instagram, or how many likes you get on a picture but moreover it is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. I’ve made it a habit of mine to try and make at least one person happy every day. I’m all about encouraging one another, and this being said: I truly hope that my little space of mine – aka my blog – is a place of encouragement and happiness for you all. Where you are not only inspired by my outfit posts but you find a reason to smile and be happy.

As always, thanks again for your support!

I love you all.
