I have been putting off writing this post for weeks and now our blog’s birthday is a little bit past and I have to do it. It is tough to summarize a year’s worth of anything, especially eating. 🙂 Stacie put together the beautiful collage above, drew the very cute doodle below and I had to write the post. Good one Stace, art comes to you naturally, and words sometimes fail me.
When Stacie first suggested we start a blog together based on the food adventures Ria and I go on, I had to “pretend” that I knew what exactly a blog really was (yes, I am that old). Then, I had to pretend that anyone, aside from a few of our foodie friends would actually read it. I vacillated and I am not a “vacillator” (Stacie doesn’t know I vacillated) and finally we decided it was something worth trying out. If nothing came from it, it would be fine. Our blog would be a little personal diary of what we ate and where we ate. It has been that and so much more.
We’ve made a ton of new friends, found some amazing kindred spirits who are as obsessed with food as we are, inspired a few people to start food blogs of their own and started our collaboration with 18 Reasons (love them) in hosting monthly food swaps and cooking classes. Along the way it was nice to see our names in print in the NYTimes and The Bay Citizen. Kind of narcissistic, but nice. We love more than anything else hearing from parents who tell us they tried a recipe and their munchkins loved it. We love it when people check out our suggested food adventure spots. Thank you for reading and being supportive. It’s all very cool and I think we will have to keep doing our little thing.
Stacie, I love you, you’re awesome! (This had to get sappy at some point). Even though you stuck me with writing this. I am glad we found each other by chance, or perhaps it was by design? You are writing the next Anniversary post. 🙂
