Did you know that February 3rd is National Carrot Cake Day? It’s also the day that I published my very first post on Carrots ‘N’ Cake. Quite the coincidence, right? I guess it was meant to be!
On February 3, 2008, Carrots ‘N’ Cake was born. Four years later, she’s still kicking!
Past blog birthdays:
I can’t believe four years of my life (and food) are documented on the Internet. Crazy! It’s even more crazy to think about all of the amazing opportunities CNC has afforded me over the years. Here are just some of them:
- Quit my fancy job at Harvard
- Starting writing a column for Health.com
- Wrote a book
- Ran two marathons
- Appeared on national television
- Traveled the country
- Met celebrities
- Hosted a healthy living conference
- Attended some really awesome events
- Saw my name on the cover of a magazine
- Spoke at blog conferences
- And, of course, made some really amazing friends!
What started as a fun, little hobby has become such a huge part of my life, and I thank each and every one of you for that. Carrots ‘N’ Cake wouldn’t be what it is today without you.
So, thank you for reading.
Thank you for commenting.
And thank you for sending me funny videos and pug photos, which totally make my day.
As a way to further show my thanks, I’m hosting a super awesome giveaway sponsored by yours truly. I wanted to do something special for you guys, so I’m giving away TWO gift cards—each for $50—to either Lululemon or Whole Foods! The winners get to choose which they’d prefer.
