Ten Years Blogging!

Hi friends! 

I wanted to pop on here with a quick pre-holiday post to tell you all THANK YOU!!

This month marks TEN YEARS of blogging! I can’t even believe it. So much has happened with my life and this little blog of mine in those years.

We added three more kids to our family, we moved from Idaho to Oregon, back to Idaho and now New York, we’ve bought (and sold) two homes, Gordon got a great job, got laid off from said job, got his masters and landed his dream job, I reached milestones online, have made and shared thousands of recipes, have consumed even more calories (😬🙈🎉) and have found my place and my voice online.

I probably am not the most popular blogger you follow online with the largest following and that’s ok. My purpose and goal isn’t to be the most popular (though the more the merrier!) It’s to provide the highest quality, most reliable recipes so you can have more confidence in the kitchen.

So, for all of you who have followed along for however long, THANK YOU for trusting me to be a part of your day and for being wonderful and positive and supportive of me and my family. We read every comment, every email, every Instagram message and appreciate it all.

That’s it 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

And don’t forget to find me on Instagram for more NYC fun in real time.
