2 years ago today…

I can hardly believe that 2 years ago today, I put my laptop down on my lap, curled up on the sofa and wrote my very first blog post. I stupidly thought this endeavour would be easy, just a little hobby to do in my spare time (yes, I can practically hear you bloggers out there throwing back your heads and laughing at my foolishness). The reality is that it takes a LOT of time, hard work and patience but 2 years later, I am still loving every minute of it. Initially I told myself I didn’t care if no one read it, but if I am really truthful, there was always a part of me that hoped that people would. For me, blogging is a medicine – it’s a creative outlet, a source of inspiration, a sounding board and a way of connecting with so many like-mind (and different) people all around the world. It continues to challenge me and forces me to get out there and experience life (all in the name of blogging), experiences like travelling, eating out, DIY projects and simple dinners at home have taken on new meaning. This post was an absolute joy to put together and I had so much fun reliving the year and remembering forgotten moments.

So with that said, thank you so much to those of you who visit and read my ramblings and take the time out of your day to comment and email me. It’s you guys that make it worthwhile.

Just in case you forgot, here’s a little taste of the year that was on Wishful Thinking…

  12. Happy second birthday to your blog. I think I operated under the same silly assumption as you did about starting a blog but quickly found that it was much more rewarding than I ever imagined it to be. Here's to many many more years
