Happy Anniversary to A Taste of Home!
Today my blog turns one and I couldn't be more proud. A few weeks ago I had a feeling I was rapidly approaching the one year mark so I went back into my archives to find the exact date and wrote it down on a little slip of paper which promptly got lost on the mess that is our computer desk. As we were cleaning up the office this morning I suddenly realized August had started and I panicked, thinking I'd missed the big day, but luckily I was right on time. :)
Unfortunately we made plans with friends to go out to dinner tonight so I won't be posting a special anniversary dinner. I did, however, post a ton of new food photos today so that's at least something. And I'm planning to make a fun new recipe for tomorrow's dinner.
It's hard to believe I've been doing this blog for a year already. It seems like only yesterday that I started taking blurry shots of the food I made, wondering what I'd be able to do with them. Then my darling husband told me I should start a food blog so I could keep track of everything I made and share my creations with the world and the rest is history. I think I've come a long way since Aug. 4, 2006. I learned how to take crystal clear close-up shots (thanks tfp!); I learned about good lighting and plating; I've met a ton of great people who love food just as much as I do; I've made friends from around the world and I've had a lot of fun with this blog. I hope the coming year is just as great, if not better.
Most importantly I want to thank everyone who reads A Taste of Home. Your comments and enthusiasm are a big part of what makes this blog fun for me. Without you guys I don't know how long I would have stuck with this.
Here's to another year!
