She grows up and she grows up!

In the midst of writing three separate entries (can you believe?), as well as adding some tags and whatnot now that I've finally made the leap to Blogger Beta, I realized--

Today, this very day, is my bloggaversary.

One year ago I pulled myself up from my depressingly unemployed bootstraps and started writing about food. It's become the best thing I've ever done with my life, leading me to:

1. Get a fantastic job as a restaurant reviewer.
2. Make new friends.
3. Learn new things and approach projects I would never have dreamed of.
4. Pursue work I really love, like the TV production and food writing I'm doing now.
5. Find out that the uncertainty, the struggles in life are often really worth it.

And so, this is my third in a dull series of (mostly) photo-less posts, but I couldn't let the milestone go unnoticed. Sporadic as I may be in posting, I treasure this blog and each and every person that takes a minute to read it.

Ha! That was actually at a masked New Year's Eve wedding, so no beads other than the necklace I'm wearing!
