Well, how did that happen? On this day two years ago,  I plucked up the courage to hit publish on the first blog post for Midnight and Lace.  Flash forward two years and here we are! We've been on quite the journey these past two years and I don't think I'll ever be able to put into words just how much your continuing support means to me.

I started this blog as a way to express who I am and to have a place where I could share my thoughts and opinions freely. What I've ended up doing over the past two years is embarking on a journey of self discovery and am finally at a place where I feel confident in both myself and feel like I am finally the person I have always wanted to be. Before I started my blog, I always felt like something was missing, like I didn't quite belong anywhere. Blogging has given me the chance to find acceptance on an international scale and it such an incredible feeling. I finally feel like I belong somewhere and that I am accepted for who I am.

These past two years I have had the most amazing opportunities that I wouldn't have had the chance to do without my blog. I've gotten to work with some truly amazing brands I admire and love like Boohoo, CarterGore, Panasonic and John Lewis! I've also been so incredibly lucky to have won a blogging award! That will forever remain such a special moment within my life and one of my top achievements, to this day I still can't believe I won and that people actually thought out of all the blogs in that category mine was worth a vote! I feel so lucky to have had these opportunities as a result of this blog and kinda blows my mind to think about it.

I truly understood how much support this blog has this year after an issue at work, where I was told I would have to shut down my blog. I was so overwhelmed by all the love and support I received during that time, I don't think I'll ever be able to put into words how thankful I am to you all for that. It moved me to tears and more importantly it moved my boss to tears, to see the impact my blog was having on other peoples lives. I actually printed off all the lovely comments I received about my blog during that time and took them to a meeting which was pretty much me telling my boss that I refused to give up my and I presented her with this evidence that she couldn't refuse. So, my blog has managed to get to two years old because of you, because of the support I have received since I started blogging and I am honestly so freaking grateful to have such wonderful and supportive readers - you are the reason I continue to blog and the reason my blog is still here, so thank you.

I am so proud of the little blog I started two years ago and am beyond thankful to every single person who has ever read my blog. I can't thank you enough for all of the support I receive for not only my blog but for me - thank you for continuing to accept this lil goth and make me feel like I belong somewhere. We're two years down and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for Midnight and Lace, I hope you're ready!
