happy anniversary

Wow! A year ago today, I started my blog with virtually no expectations except to have a place where my family could go to find recipes.

I knew I wanted to make a connection.  I hit the “publish” button without any real knowledge of what I was doing. It’s taken some time and persistence, but I am proud I have entered this world and have become a part of this community.

This year has been a tremendous learning experience. When I initially purchased my camera, I had no idea how to take pictures of anything (much less food). Sometimes I cringe at my old photos, but I will keep them there as a reminder of how far I have come.

I think it’s evident from my blog that I really enjoy cooking and sharing my recipes and thoughts with you.

I want to give a big shout out to my family and friends who have been so supportive of me: Simone, for her endless patience and for helping to make this happen; Shelley, who is kind and supportive enough to share her recipes with me; and Cathy, who patiently crosses my t’s and dots my i’s.

To all my old and new friends who have visited my blog and supported me in this endeavor, I thank you!

It’s that simple!
