Wait! I missed it?

Things have been so crazy lately that I am ashamed to admit I missed my one year blog-anniversary!  How could I???   I was going to write this fabulous post about how I have progressed as a writer since I first started the blog.  I was going to have it posted on the exact day one year later.   But no...I missed it!  (Hangs head in shame)

My very first post ever was on May 16, 2010, and it was a cooking adventure that went terribly, terribly wrong.  To truly understand, you'll need to read the step by step instructions on how I attempted to make "healthy" brownies using black beans (yes, you read that correctly).  I was told by the good folks at Good Morning America who had the writer of the cookbook himself on the show that you couldn't even taste the black beans.  These people are horrible liars.  I took one bite into the gooey mess and yep, that's black beans I taste.  Suffice it to say the rest ended up in the trash.

So much has changed since that first post - I married my best friend, we fought with a mouse in our house and won (only partially), decided to give the house to said mouse and built our own home, went to Ireland, I started my book (still a work in progress), and I've met some amazing friends out here in the blogosphere in the process!  All in all, I'm very pleased with how things have evolved, and I think that this is one of the best decisions I've made.  And I thank T so much for his love and support as I embarked on this little adventure.

So here's to Year 2!  Let's see where this one takes me! 

And because reaching one year is a treasure, I'm linking this puppy up with Chantel's Small Treasure Tuesdays.  



  1. I can't wait to see what year 2 brings!!!! :)

  2. Congrats on one year!!! I must admit I'm sure I missed my 1 year. I switched from blogger to wordpress and lost track.

    Year 1 has brought a lot of growth and excitement here's to another year of fun, growth and blogging!!!

    Btw did you wait for the brownies to completely cool before eating? I have a recipe for brownies with avocado but you have to wait until they completely cool otherwise you can taste the avocado. Just a thought.

  3. Happy Belated Anniversary!


  4. Eh, so you celebrate a little late, it's still a celebration, right? Happy blogoversary!

  5. Congratulations on one year of great blogging!
