Do you guys know what today is?
That’s right…Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life officially turned TWO today!
And I clearly had a little extra time on my hands this afternoon.
I still can’t believe that it’s been two since I sat down and officially decided to write the first post “welcoming” myself into the blog world.
It’s pretty comical (and a little scary) to go back and read some of my older posts. I get to watch just how much the blog has evolved, and I love that because it helps me see how much things have changed…my writing style has changed, my photos have improved, and my extreme overuse of exclamation marks and smiley faces has been significantly reduced. Well, depending on the day.
I have quite a few favorite posts, but I also have a feeling that there are posts hidden throughout these two years that I’ve totally forgotten about (including this one that I just stumbled across). One of these days, I’m going to have to go through ALL of em…yeah, one of these days.
The blog itself has also gone through some changes, and I’d be willing to bet that there aren’t too many of you who would remember when things looked like this:
Then about seven months later, STSL got a bit of a facelift.
And now, here we are.
But over these past two years, the blog isn’t the only thing that’s gone through some changes…my life has gone through a number of changes, and I’m so incredibly thankful for the fact that I have it all documented to look back on.
When I first started this blog, I had no idea if it was going to last or if it was just going to be another thing that seemed “cool” at the moment and then gradually fall to the wayside. But throughout all of the other things that may have fallen to the wayside over these past two years (hello, teaching career), the blog is one thing that has remained constant.
It’s given me a place to share a voice that I may not have otherwise had, it’s allowed me to vent when I need to, it’s presented me with a number of great opportunities, and most importantly, it’s given me the courage and strength to truly follow my heart and lead my life down a brand new path.
And for that, I will be forever grateful…which also includes each and every one of you.
Thank you so much for reading along with me for these past two years. Thank you for your support when times were challenging. Thank you me listening to me ramble day in and day out. I know this blog world has millions of blogs that you could be reading, but the fact that you take the time out of your day to read my little corner of blog world truly makes my day, and I am so happy to have all of you as my readers.
If I could, I would send each and every one of you a “Thank You Cupcake,” but since I can’t do that ruining the best part (the frosting, duh!), I’m going to go ahead and do this instead…
I’m going to give away two $25.00 gift certificates to Spa Finder (because who couldn’t use a little extra pampering every now and then, right?).
To enter, just leave a comment in the comment section of this post about anything you’d like (just keep it friendly and positive, pleeeease!) and I’ll choose the winners on Tuesday, April 10th.
Think of it as a little thank you gift from me (and maybe to you!) for your wonderful support and readership. Because honestly, I wouldn’t be here without all of you.
