First of all, I should acknowledge the new look for my blog. It is to commemorate a big milestone, the one year anniversary of my blog! I chose this particular photo because not only is orange my favorite color, but also because oranges are in season where I live (Florida). I will probably be playing around more with the look in the upcoming months.
I am really surprised that this blog has been around for a year already, and that I am enjoying it as much as I do. It started out only as a temporary experiment. I am really happy to be able to share and connect with others that I would otherwise not. I have some ideas for the direction I want to take this blog in the upcoming year, but will share more about that later.
Next, I want to share my honor that Lynn of Colorjoy has awarded me the You Make My Day Award! Thank you so much, Lynn! You are bringing lots of new people to my blog, and I love that! And, incidentally, you also make my day!! Yours is the first blog I ever read or followed.
Last but not least, today my kitchen is being highlighted in the Perfect Pantry's Other People's Pantries series. Check it out! Thanks so much to Lydia for coordinating such an interesting effort!
