This just goes to show how bad I am at remembering momentous occasions...apparently my one year anniversary of blogging was yesterday.
Thank you to all my readers - and especially my commenters - you've made the last year a very special, and surprisingly fulfilling journey.
I started this blog after moving to a new area. It was the first time I'd ever moved outside of the greater Seattle area and I didn't know a single soul other than my husband. I'd just gone through a very personal tragedy and was grasping at straws to keep myself sane. I'd been reading food blogs for a while, but didn't think I had the chops to write one myself - it seemed very intimidating.
Nevertheless, I jumped in with both feet and found it to be at once challenging and therapeutic. I have evolved and improved as a cook and as a photographer and can only hope to continue doing so as I progress.
Again, thank you to everyone who has contributed to the last year - either with ideas, advice, or a nice comment or two along the way.
I guess it's into the kitchen for another year of making tasty foods and writing about them - I hope to see you, same time and same place, this time next year.
