Four beautiful years

Four years? Four years! 

Yes, it has been four beautiful years. I first wrote here on the 21st of Nov'07 and wow, what a journey it has been :)

When I started blogging it was essentially a space where I could bookmark ideas that inspired me, record my experiences & projects, capture sweet memories; all with design as the underlying theme. Over time it also became a place where I got the opportunity to meet so many creative people. 

purplehomes has given me more than I could have ever imagined.

Four years ago, I couldn’t have imagined making lifelong friends in different parts of the world.
Four years ago, I couldn’t have imagined I’d be consulting for an organization for a cause so close to my heart.
Four years ago, I couldn’t have imagined I’d be writing for design magazines.
Four years ago, I couldn’t have imagined someone out there would be writing about me.
Four years ago, I couldn’t have imagined the birth of my new baby, (I’ve been working really hard with my small, extremely talented and growing team and we hope to go live by the end of the year)

A big thank you to each and everyone of you.For being there. 
For giving me an opportunity to write here and make this a space a special part of my life. A space that I love revisiting; to rejuvenate and remember. Writing here refreshes me and clears my head and simply going through the older posts helps me savour the good times I’ve had in the last four years.

Thank you once again.
And like all the celebrations in my life, food needs to be an integral part of it. So I’ve decided to rejoice by gifting myself a new blog.A food blog.
Orange Kitchens (Going live tonight)

And I am secretly hoping that all of you will give orangekitchens as much love and support as you’ve been giving purplehomes.

Much love,
