The last year has been quite a roller coaster ride in so many ways. Close friends will know what I'm talking about. And in the midst of all the drama and disappointments, it was quite easy to lose track of how blessed I was and am. It's the little things that make you happy, bring you joy and a sense of satisfaction. And sometimes you over look them or take them for granted.
The blog has definitely been one source of immense satisfaction and joy. I have learned so much, grown so much and made so many interesting and incredible friends through this tiny little piece of myself that I share with all of you. I started this blog around 3 years ago as a sort of timepass :) Because I loved writing and ranting and raving, and to a lot of people's amusement, talking endlessly about myself :) But I'm happy to say that this little blog of mine has come a long way in these 3 years. Still more to learn though, and bigger hills to climb, but in the meantime I would like to say a big 'thank you' to all of you who have supported All Things Nice, written in with feedback, followed, liked and appreciated. THANK YOU! You have no idea how invaluable your comments and encouragement have been and continue to be.
Recognition from the media is also another big encouragement. It lets me know I'm on the right track, and encourages me to aim higher. Last month I was part of the Diwali feature of GoodHomes Magazine, India. This month I'm thrilled to be included in an Hindustan Times Estates feature on India's Top Interior Decor Blogs, along with some of my favourite bloggers. Big shout out to the guys at HT estates for the recognition.
If you would like to have a look at the feature click here, select the Mumbai issue, select the date of 15th November and then select estates (its not as complicated as it sounds).
