I realized, just today, that last week marked the three hundredth Sugarlaws post since I started this blog in 2007. I know that there are blogs out there that post every day, or more than once a day, but each of these posts takes me quite some time to put together. In fact, when I think about how many hours of my life I’ve spent on those three hundred posts (not to mention the recipes and outfits that do not make the cut for this blog), it feels like kind of an amazing feat.
And, um, if I stopped blogging, maybe I would have time to go to the gym again. Or get a manicure every once in a while. Or, um, sleep.
But that’s a trade I will take any day, because I love my little corner of the internet. And most of all, I love you guys — without you, I would have abandoned this blog long ago, but your emails and comments and tweets and good vibes are more than I could have ever wished for when I began this site.
Gosh, I am a mushball today. So, happy three hundred and second post — and without further blabbering, the winners of my Coppertone giveaway are Comments 20 (Bethany) and 33 (Alexandra) and Twitter peeps @oneibt6 and @chrissymarie68 and @kdmetz! I’ll be emailing later today for your addresses!
