Four years ago today, I hit “publish” on my very first blog post.
Who knew what a huge part of my life eat. live. travel. write. would become? Certainly I was not expecting to still be blogging up a storm four years later!
I didn’t want to write one of those retrospective blog birthday posts (you know, most commented post, most views etc…) and I’m crazy busy right now recovering from FBC2013 and gearing up for Food Revolution Day so instead, I’ll keep this one short and sweet. This far down the track, though, it’s time to spend my summer taking a long hard look at this blog, really moving towards focussing and improving my writing and photos over the year to come. My long term gift to you, dear readers…
For now, to mark the occasion, I have a little something for my Canadian readers… It’s pretty…
And, fitting since my very first post was called “A few of my favourite things” it just happens to be one of my most favourite things in the kitchen…
