As we finally move out of 2016 it's time to prepare for the year ahead. Like last year, I've chosen a word as my yearly mantra. Read on to learn what it is!
Remember when I set my 30 Before 30 goals all those months ago? There are only five months left! See how I'm doing in my latest update.
The Terrible Twos are over! Today, October 21st, is the 3rd blogiversary of Valerie & Valise. I started this blog three years ago today, and am so excited how far it has come. Birthdays and anniversaries and blogiversaries are weird, aren’t they? We celebrate each year at the end of year; I’m turning 30 in April, even though it’s the start of my 31st year on the planet...
With only 12 months left to complete my 30 Before 30 Goals, its hard to imagine how much I will accomplish, and how I will feel, this time next year. Happy birthday, or wish me luck!

Holy Guacamole! It’s my second blogiversary… already? It’s hard to believe an entire YEAR has come and gone since last we came together to celebrate how much this little blog has grown. For the next few days, I’ll spend time talking about how my blog is doing, what I’ve learned, where I’m headed, and more… but for now? It’s time to celebrate!..
Six months down, twenty-four to go. Here is my annual checkup on my 30 Before 30 goals... just in time for my birthday!
With only 30 months before I turn 30 years old, I've written a list of goals to help make my birthday a celebration of the past while looking eagerly toward the future.
Today, my friends, is a VERY exciting day: October 21st, 2014 is my first blogiversary! (I’ve been doing Valerie & Valise, formerly Valise Magazine for you old fans, for a year as of today!)
