Yesterday, I realized something totally insane: Today is my one thousandth Sugarlaws post!
I think I was subconsciously anticipating this huge milestone when I wrote on Wednesday about all the transitions I’ve gone through since starting this blog, but it’s crazy to think that in the last five years, I’ve written over a thousand posts on this site!
I’d write about all the amazing ways my life has changed since starting this blog, but I already did that a few days ago.
So I’ll just say this:
Sometimes the biggest moments in our life start in the smallest, least anticipated ways.
When I started Sugarlaws, I had no idea of the journey it would take me on. I didn’t have a clue that it would change everything about my life, or that it would ever become such an integral part of my day-to-day. It was a place to keep track of recipes as I made them, and my own little corner of the internet that I assumed no one would ever visit.
I had no idea of the challenges and incredible opportunities it would bring my way, and I had absolutely no inkling of how many of my dreams it would make come true.
I thought I was starting a blog. I had no idea that I was starting a whole new life.
If you’re curious, check out my first post here. Blogging was a different world back then — no magazine-style photos, no graphic designers creating the perfect layouts. It was a lot less polished, but there’s something kind of sweet about starting that way.
What a long, strange, and ultimately incredible road it’s been from there.
