Happy Anniversary gapmusers! Yup! We’re officially 2 years old and can hardly contain our excitement! We’ve come a long way together and we thank you for taking this journey with us.
Peeking back, it’s amazing to think that I started this blog to help me get through a really difficult patch in my life. Fast forward to 2 years later, it’s hard to believe but gratifying to know that it’s now weaved into my life and hundreds of you who follow us on our blog and social media everyday.
It has done more to educate, inspire, and empower me plus women and girls from all over the world and surpassed my expectations. I certainly could not have achieved this milestone and many others without you, gapmusers. Yes, you did it!
We’ve been through a lot and mused about many things. From getting inspired by remarkable women, finding courage in tough times, managing transitions, and reclaiming our power, to achieving amazing milestones, we came away stronger, resilient, hopeful, and ready to conquer the year ahead.
Here are our most memorable moments of the past 2 years:
1. Over 130 Musings
Even though our publishing schedule slowed down quite a bit in the last year (hey, life got hectic), we’re proud to have shared 134 musings with you. Our only hope is that somewhere along the way, you found something to educate, inspire, and empower you.
2. Over 700 gapmusers across our social channels!
We grew our gapmuse family to over 700 on social! Thank you for connecting with us and for your continued support gapmusers! We’re truly grateful.
3. Universal Connections
We inspired and empowered women and girls in nearly 100 countries across the globe proving that the need for both is universal. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, we’re all weaved together by our common experiences and desire for a better life for ourselves and those around us.
4. Fashionable Discoveries
Who knew that when we discovered and shared these culottes from a Wall Street Journal article that it would resonate as much as it did with you. To date, you have re-pinned it a whopping 1800 times! We were so inspired by your enthusiasm that we shared some tips on how to rock a pair. Click here to read more.
5. Passions in Common
We were pleasantly surprised to learn that you love fashion and food just as much as we do. Thank you for making our Fashion & Style and Food & Drink Pinterest Boards your most popular. We’re listening and promise to keep bringing you more of the latest trends, fashion and style tips, and fun and adventurous ideas for your kitchen. So be sure to stop by every now and then. We promise to keep you looking fab and eating right.
6. Changes Galore
We went through many changes, some triumphant, others heartbreaking. We moved, threw our first DIY fairy tale party, knocked some things off our bucket list, lost loved ones and welcomed new ones. Through it all, we came away stronger, wiser, perhaps with a few more wrinkles, but more empowered.
As we venture into our 3rd year, we can’t help but be excited about what lies ahead and to share our experiences with you. Our only hope is that we continue to inspire and empower you, even in the slightest way.
Be inspired. 🙂
