August is a weird month. It’s the end of summer and everyone is thinking about fall weather and clothes, yet the temperatures make it seem like the upcoming season is months away. Maybe true for LA, but I really hope not! I love wearing dressed up shorts in the transitional period, especially with a light knit. This sweater is perfect with it’s short sleeves and jeweled neckline. It adds a little something extra, don’t you think?
I just realized that today is my 4 year blog anniversary! M Loves M is growing up, I can hardly believe it. SO much has happened since that first post long long ago. This weekend at the Texas Style Council I saw blog friends that I have been following for years. I feel like I know them because I’ve been reading about their lives every day. I’ve followed the graduations, engagements, weddings, babies, job changes, and all the little things in between. I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given through my blog, especially the friendships that have resulted. My blog has evolved a lot over the years, and I’m sure it will continue to do so. It’s kind of exciting to think about sometimes. I want to thank all of you for coming here, whether it’s your first or hundredth time. Your support means so much to me and I appreciate all your comments, emails, post suggestions, tweets and virtual hugs. I feel lucky to have such an incredible group of blog friends and readers! Thank you again!!
Welcome to M Loves M! My name is Mara and I created this lifestyle site in 2009 as a place to share my love of fashion, beauty, food and entertaining. I moved from Southern California to Idaho and love adventuring with my husband Matthew, our two children, and our dog Ginger. We're also pregnant with baby #3, due this autumn! I strive to create a site that’s relatable to women, while also being inspirational. I’m so glad you stopped by!
