Somehow I let the occasion pass by, but last Sunday was the five year anniversary of the Keep It Sweet blog. The very first published post got lost in the moves from one site, to another, and then to another, but I do remember that it was a recipe for an ice cream dessert. I sort of wish that post still existed but I think it’s better that I can’t go back and cringe over the photos!
So much has happened in five years. When I first started the blog, I had just gotten married, was working a corporate finance job that I liked but didn’t love, and was living in a very tightly packed one-bedroom apartment in NYC storing kitchen equipment in the bedroom. An apartment move, a bakery and a baby later, here we are!
Where we are now is another post for another day, but overall, I’m happy and feel blessed. The above changes seem straightforward when you list them out, but it really was a lifetime ago that I first started sharing in this space. I could go on and on in multiple digressions on that, too. Regardless, I’m so happy that I’m still here blogging.
Thank you so much for visiting the site, commenting, sharing posts and making my life a little more full!
