I love food. I love cookbooks. I love finding the perfect spice for the perfect dish. I love finding a new flavor-infused oil or vinegar that I haven’t tried before. I love discovering a new snack that satisfies me without ruining my plan to stay within my PointsPlus for the day.

I love all these things so much that I’m going to start doing something special for all you readers… because I love you too!

There’s a lot of change that’s happened in my life in the last year and a half and much of it has been documented on this blog. I’ve lost 1/3 of the weight that I want to lose, I’ve participated in a couple 5Ks, I’ve dealt with a lot of emotional issues and I’ve had a ton of fun creating and re-creating delicious recipes. I’m grateful for all of it and I want to pass on some of that gratitude.

In about a week, on my 200th post, I’ll be doing a giveaway for a special, one-of-a-kind “RWWF Love and Gratitude Box”. This box will contain a random assortment of things that I love. It could be my newest favorite protein bar or some homemade cookies, a cookbook that I found a great deal on or a magnet with an awesome quotation, an interesting jar of spice mix that I randomly picked up and loved or a bottle of my favorite hot sauce, and maybe even a beautiful piece of art that inspired me or that I created myself. Whatever is in the box, I guarantee that it will have come from a special place in my heart and a note with what everything is and why I love it.

And I won’t be doing this just once. I want to giveaway a “RWWF Love and Gratitude Box” every so often because I truly am grateful for everything and everyone that has followed me on this journey and given me so much love and support. Maybe this will inspire you to do the same or similar thing on your blog. Maybe it will inspire you to pass along some of that gratitude in ways that you might not have considered before. Or maybe it will just get you really excited about getting an awesome package in the mail. However it affects you, I hope that you feel a little more love and gratitude than you did before.

I’m excited. I hope you are too :)
