Holy shit, you guys! Festive AF is an entire year old today. I mean, if you want to get technical about it, I bought the URL (well, thatsfestiveasfuck.com) and reserved the Instagram handle years ago, but I made my first post exactly one year ago today.
I was bumming after the inauguration, and couldn’t quite get out of my funk. So I told my friend Monte, “I’ve been talking about doing this for years. I’m either going to do it this week and it’s going to be a thing, or I’m not going to do it and I’m going to give up on the idea.” So I put up a fucking post and made it a fucking thing. And I’m really glad I did! Is it exactly where I thought it would be now? Not even close. I was sure I’d have 10,000 Instagram followers and even be making some decent income from it at this point. I’ll blame all of that on Instagram’s stupid algorithm, and not my fabulous content (or the fact that I don’t post as often as I should since I now have a big-girl job — well, if you count being the world’s oldest social media manager as a big-girl job). But, hey! It definitely got me out of my funk, I’m hosting badass events, I get to spend more time than I should making crafts and cocktails, and I’m even making a liiiiittle bit of money.
To celebrate, I decided to do a little smash cake photo session. And, yes, I absolutely matched my cake to my lipstick and my champagne (well, brut rosé) to my shoes. So there.
Thank you so fucking much for following along, and for sticking around.
