Miles to go...

Exactly two years ago this blog was born - more so for my love of books and then of course gradually it went onto become my alter ego. While Memoirs of Me stood for all the good things of my life this one represented the bad things of my life. Needless to say both are immensely special to me and are my two kids that I have had.
 
The most wonderful feeling for a blogger is to have at least one genuine reader who is your worst critic and best appreciator. I would say I am very lucky to have found someone like that in Dumpling - my bestest friend ever. There has not been a single day when he has not written to me about my blogs, books or about what's more special to both of us - LIFE!
 
750 posts, 43k hits, 119 book reviews, 462 daily thoughts on living and loving, this blog surely has a long way to go ! I intended to write a letter to my blog as it's birthday gift but then today morning I woke up to see a beautiful letter in my inbox addressed to my blog celebrating it's birthday. I had to share it here for the sheer beauty it reflects as to how deeply he connects with me and my thoughts.

Dear Reviews and Musings,
 
Wish you a very happy birthday :) I am glad that you have completed your 2 years so happily :) All
the credits due to your author as well who has been updating you regularly and leaving no stones
unturned to make you more beautiful and better than yesterday.
 
Just two years back at the same time you have started your journey at the same time (approximately
after 9 months to your sister - Memoirs of Me). And you have turned out to really well and trust me
when I say you are reaching there. To be honest, there is no race but you will be best for yourself as
you are improving very fastly :).
 
Even though people gives more attention to your other sister than you, but I have realised that you are
truly simple and yourself than yours sister. Yours sister is also truly yourself but little crafty though.
But I really feel sad sometimes as world wants crafty or make-up rather than appreciating the
simplicity. She is trying hard and succeeded also in becoming so, but you should be happy at it rather
than being J ;). I can understand sometimes smaller sister gets J faster, but as your nature is I feel
that you would understand soon about it. But your trust have been phenomenal to your sister and your
author as well.

You have been rock solid in sharing your daily thoughts to us, reviews - books, blogs, etc., letting your author write something really simple - her true emotions, etc. Yours author is truly a big fan of yours and she can do anything to be in touch with you. She can’t stay without you two sisters at least I feel so ;). I have seen the changes in you since last 1.5 years almost. Trust me you have improved quite a lot.

Kudos to yours author as well to maintaining you and never letting us down. I wish you a long and
prosperous life with yours author. Like always keep teaching us and share yours precious thoughts. I
know she is not far away in becoming a “remarkable” author.

Dumpling
