I can't believe it's been one year! March of last year, Megan and I became the new owners of Darling Boutique, and we jumped for joy. This week, we find ourselves celebrating our first year as business owners, our first year of business partnership, and our first year of amazing community. We also find ourselves thanking the many who have supported us throughout this journey, including all of our followers - near and far. So thank you! May our second year bring emboldened vision as we continue to seek God's plan for this little shop, and this blog.
In true shop girl style, we celebrated with a photo shoot, styling not one, but two outfits - because we're a Darling Duet, after all!
Shop Girl Style: Look 1
"Are we out of the woods yet? Are we in the clear yet? GOOD." Thanks, T-Swift, for the inspiration. This first year sure had its moments of asking these questions, and searching for our way out of the woods into greener pastures. But the Lord so faithfully guided us in each step, with wisdom and grace and provision - like sunlight beaming down to make the path clear.
For this look, we're each wearing some of our favorite purchases from the last year, as well as new arrivals in the shop.

"Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell." Psalm 43:3
As we look to this year ahead, we gaze at the mountains around us, beautiful and majestic in all their glory. We have such vision for this blog, this shop, and for how God wants to use it for His glory. May we take each step, side-by-side, in sync with His will and His vision.
