Today marks my 3 year blogoversary. I’d like to think I grew, a lot, especially in those first two years. But this past year has been a bit turbulent. When I first started blogging, I saw it as an opportunity to find my place in the world, to have a voice. I loved creating and toying with news recipes then sharing it with all of you and listening to your feedback, praise and advice.
It has been quite a year. At this time, last December I was just finishing up my first few days at a new job. A job that might drive me to an early grave, but I love every minute of it. The year started out with newness and stress all rolled into one. It’s been a trying year for family and unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to me much relief on the horizon. On a positive note, my healthy was measurably poorer at the start of this year, but by
suffering through embracing a gluten-free diet (read: no more real pizza EVER), I’ve landed in a much better place. I wouldn’t go as far as pain-free, but we’re getting there. But through all the ups and downs there’s been a single constant: food. I cook when I’m sad, when I’m stressed, when I’m happy. I cook to say I’m sorry or I love you or to welcome the new season. Often, I cook just because. Yes, my blog posting has gotten less frequent as life gets in the way, but I assure you, the cooking doesn’t stop. Thank you for being there, for following my journey. For reading, for commenting and just letting me know there’s someone else reading (besides my mother). I wish you all a 2015 filled with health, happiness and good food.
