Happy Birthday The Puzzle of Sandra's Life


'Whoa, I'm old' has been my first reaction when I realized this little corner of the Internet was turning five years old today. The second one was 'let's go buy some cupcakes to celebrate', in case you're wondering. But that's beside the point. I really can't believe how fast time's flying by. I've been blogging for half a decade! Half a decade! Can you believe it? How did that happen?!

I went through some major, stressful life changes this past year, which has definitely taken a toll on my blog, and I have to admit, this is not something I am proud of. Apart from simply not having enough time to produce content, I felt incredibly unmotivated and discouraged as well, and seriously considered retiring my blog on several different occasions. But the thing is, there will always be ups and downs. It's just the way life is. And throwing away years of hard work and precious memories just like that would be a silly thing to do, right?

Deep down in my heart, I know I'll never be able to say the final goodbye. This blog has become such a big part of me and changed my life in ways I couldn't have imagined. They say that everything happens for a reason, and guess what? I believe it. I don't know who to thank for starting this 'weird' hobby of mine five years ago - probably myself, duh - but I do know that I want to thank you for coming along for the ride. Especially those of you who haven't abandoned me during this crazy, post-less year. Thank you. You know who you are.

  5. Congrats :) I started following your blog about two years ago and I loved seeing you become more and more independent throughout the years. You experience with London was and still is so inspiring. I like that you also share with us, the days when you're not feeling ok or when things aren't the way you want them to be. Internet has become a place where people mostly share only the good bits and not the bad ones. So thank you for being so honest and down to earth with your content. Keep on creating and happy blog's birthday!

  8. I understannd how you feel since I had a few months myself with no motivation to blog and I was thinking to stop blogging.
    But I feel the same when you have put so much effort to something is hard to let go.
    I think you'll start finding your mood to blog again.
    Happy birthday to your blog!
    Mine turns 5 in a few months as well.
