Small Girl, Big Ideas

2 Years!

I cannot honestly believe it's been one year since I had my first blogiversary, and even more so, TWO whole years of this. Crazy, as I usually let things die down after awhile.

Here's a year of outfits. There are also tons of other posts. Of travel and friends. Of corgis, and indeed, of cocktails. Here are a few of my favorite posts from the year (and yours too, according to analytics!)

And I'll answer the same questions of last year, for good measure. Only in a new way, because, well, things have changed, after all.

Why Of Corgis & Cocktails?
See last year's answer to get the Walrus and the Carpenter from Alice in Wonderful reference. But if you are wondering why my blog is named for multiple corgis when I have one corgi, and one other mutt with no corgi in her (well, technically, I don't know that.) For the first year I had this blog, it was just me and that corgi, and all my corgi things. I didn't think ahead, and quite frankly, I've taken to the name quite a bit. Tails plays with corgis well, it has that play on words.

Is that a corgi?
Enough of one! He's a mixed breed, so he's a corgum (corgi mixed with 'um, I dunno'). But I really doubted naming my blog 'Of Corgums and Cocktails' made much sense to anyone.

What camera/lenses do you use?
I have a Canon 60D and a Sigma 30mm 1.4 I didn't have last year. Unfortunately, my 50mm 1.4 and 16-28mm 2.8 lenses are now broken, so I work with 1 prime lens these days. We're working on that.

You lived apart from your husband?
Yeah, I forgot that was sort of a theme of this blog. I live with my husband like a normal person now. We've moved, and we get along swimmingly. If you are curious and didn't know this, you can read about why here. We've been back together for a year now.

How old are you?
I'm 25, and 26 in a few days! Because my blogiversary / birthday sync up, look up for a HUGE giveaway come Monday. Trust me, you are going to want this one.

Seriously, thank you all for reading! If it weren't for you, I wouldn't keep doing this! I've loved what this blog has become and can't wait for the next year of this.
