✔ that i would learn to love cooking and become [at least sort of] part of the food blogging community [still not sure how that happened!]
✔ that i would grow to truly love pouring my thoughts out to the world in the early morning
✔ that anyone would read it
✔ that i would run a marathon [or 4]
✔ that i would end up meeting some wonderful people who turned into IRL friends
✔ that blogging would help me through tough decisions and frustrating times
✔ that i would continue posting in this space for 7 years!
yes - 7 years, and technically one day -- the dating on my first post got changed by 1 day after i moved from the original url to theshubox.com. for a more chronological walk through memory lane [complete with wedding pictures], check out last year's post: and now we are 6.
thank you all so much for reading, commenting, and making this SO much fun! i truly appreciate it, and i hope to continue sharing in this space for at least another 7. stay tuned . . . there's plenty more to come.
