hey! today is my blog’s birthday!
i started this blog four years ago on april 20, 2009. well.. i guess it’s technically april 21st right now since i am typing this at 12:34 AM (yay, 1-2-3-4!) but i didn’t have time to write this up and publish it before we went to the movies tonight. pretend it’s still the 20th, kay? it was a busy day. by the way, we saw oblivion and i fell asleep for about fifteen minutes of it.. narco right here!!
anyway.. four years! crazy it’s been so long since the beginning of meals & moves. i started this blog with no expectations and had no idea it would have such a huge impact on my life. i stumbled upon the food & fitness blogging world by mistake (read the story here) and not even a week later i started this blog.
i had no idea what i was doing in the beginning. i have always loved writing and cooking, so when i first laid eyes on a food blog it just clicked for me. i wanted to have one of my own! i wanted to use it as a creative outlet, to share recipes, and to stay accountable. i had no clue i would make friends and travel places and try so many new things and have awesome experiences thanks to this little blog. it’s pretty cool. i’m happy to be a part of this community. this blog has opened so many doors for me and has led me down paths that have molded me into a more passionate person. it’s the best hobby ever! some people play golf.. other people collect antiques.. and i blog.
as i have done the previous three years, i am hosting a giveaway of my favorite things. and, because it’s tradition, i filmed a video telling you about all the loot!
