4 Years of Underland to Wonderland!

On the 27th of November 2011 I apparently sat down and created this space, after having deleted the previous one due to too many bad memories. This was actually my 4th attempt at a blog with others lasting between a week - a one dedicated to my first trip abroad alone (Disneyland Paris Feb/March 2010) which I updated each night while away for my parents to see - and a year (my first ever Project 365 in around 2007). Who knew that Underland to Wonderland, originally 'Once Upon A Time They Lived Happily Ever After', would be the one to stick.
Massive thank you to the beautiful Sian, who was overly sweet and sent my blog/me a card! :)
In the beginning this was purely an online diary where I blogged about days out and could express my opinions, my parents being the only readers I knew of. Back then I only followed a few American bloggers and exchanged comments but knew nothing of a community more than a blogging forum site, of which I can't even remember the name.
Not only did my blog change name, but the design has changed multiple times and I've become more aware of what I post (and by that I mean I stopped having as much of an opinion haha).
I've probably said all of this over and over again over the past years already, so instead of reminiscing I'm gonna choose some posts from the past year to re-share in celebration of my 4th blogiversary.

I'd love to know if you enjoyed any of these posts or what post you enjoyed that I haven't listed! Also - how long have you been reading Underland to Wonderland? Is anyone still here from the 'Once Upon A Time They Lived Happily Ever After' days? I bet it's obvious as to why I changed names eh?

Huge big thanks again to everyone who comes to this magical place. I hope you will continue to visit us on our journey of appreciation, inspiration and happiness <3

  12. Happy blog birthday, Danielle! I can't even remember how long I've been reading your blog now - I had a quick look in your archives and I was definitely reading and commenting last December, but I think it's been a little longer than that. While I couldn't put my finger on a particular post, I always love your Weekly Reflections posts, and any Baker updates! I do particularly reading your Jemima and her Puddle Ducklings post though and cooing over the adorable photographs!
