First things first – yes, apparently ‘Blogiversary’ (blog anniversary) is a word. Second, and more importantly, I just passed my first one! I didn’t even realize until it dawned on me that last March I was in Lahore for the whole month, and I began this blog right before I left for that wedding shopping trip in Feb 2013. What a journey it’s been! Of course, my trip back to the PK, and the wedding itself, but I mean this whole process of blogging about it all!
When I started my blog last year I said that I’m excited to take you on the journey that is my Big Fat Pakistani Wedding…well one year, and tens of thousands of page views later, I’m so thrilled that you’ve come along for the ride! I could never have imagined such great interest and positive feedback, and I’m so happy to hear that my experiences have helped you plan your Big Fat Pakistani Wedding, or Indian wedding, or well, just wedding, period! So really, I wanted to say: thank you. Thank you for reading, for following and for all your comments. Starting this blog, aside from how much I enjoy writing it, has made me realize the power of sharing stories; whether it be talking about things like redefining ‘jahez’ (dowry) or choosing a make up artist, it made me realize that just having a space to have this dialogue is so important, and I’m so happy that you’re all apart of it.
