Cheers to 3 Years! #blogiversary

Hello Friends! Today marks 3 years of Katie Looking Forward posts. My first post was outlining half of my 2012 New Years Resolutions. Last year I had grand plans for a blog giveaway but it never came to be.

Katie Looking Forward 2012The above photo was what I first used as my profile picture. It was taken in Mexico, but I thought it was a good way of representing my love of Northern MN.

My first posts were all words, no images. As I grew more comfortable taking photos and sharing about my life, my blog slowly grew.

Katie Cummings 2014 Glimpses of SoulThis year I attended the 2014 Minnesota Bloggers Conference and had another headshot taken by Glimpses of Soul. As you can see from the two pictures, not much as changed. Especially in what I feel most comfortable wearing.

And I like that way. I’m learning and growing, but staying true to myself. And that is important.

What is the same for you in the past three years? What has changed?



    1. Thanks! I know, my hair is getting a little out of control, I’m thinking it will be donate-able this spring…..but I usually like long hair in the summer, so I’m not sure what I will do!

  1. Happy Blogoversary! So much has changed for me in the last 3 years as I’ve been through a lot of change. Some things that are the same are the condo building and floor I am living on, my love for Minneapolis, and the fact that 90% of what I wear comes from Banana Republic. Things that are different are that I’m in a great relationship, have a new job, and have been diagnosed with a chronic illness (RA).

    1. The diagnosis isn’t fun, but how amazing to have a great relationship, and that Banana is still making clothes you love! When I had my first job I loved their no iron button ups, and who knows, I might have another job someday that requires I dress up again!

    1. Thank you my dear! And especially thank you for taking the time to comment, I can’t wait to read more about your chicago life!

  2. CONGRATS! I’m so happy I discovered your blog & hope to get to actually meet you someday! And I love the same shirt in both those pics–I have those things that I obviously love bc they show up on repeat in my pics. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats again!

    1. We have to work on a meet up! Sadly my winter is crazy, but at least in the spring!! (or March which still feels like winter?)

    1. Three moves? Good for you! I may be moving in the next year, but am seriously hoping I can buy so that I don’t have to deal with moving….I hate moving.
