That is the number of posts I have written in about 7 years of blogging.

The blog began as a journal for the girls and our close ones who live away.
I tired to capture local events that attracted us ( more in Chennai than now)
I documented my home decor mania and our travels here.
Without getting too personal, I have shared some highs and lows even.

I have mostly stayed away from political or social issues  and certainly not put up official stuff.
And that I think kept most trolls away.

I am thankful to the blog for getting me:
Mister Muthu
Have you seen this?

I became a part of the lovely Saffron Tree family.

The push to venture into new terrain- my story telling initiative- Art's Tales- came also from the well wishers here.

My family has enjoyed the showcasing of our homes especially by Patty.

We learnt a lot about Art and craft from Artsy Craftsy Shruti.
I made a great friend S and little did I know we would turn neighbors one day.
ITW  began blogging with me and encouraged me with comments that we exchanged in the early days.

I remember with great joy the surprise blogger baby shower for Aditi - in Chennai and in Blore.

Along the way I have met a lot of lovely people who became friends.
