How on earth did I forget my own blogiversary?! I think it’s because I’m a little confused. You see, when I first started blogging (as in started a blog), it was June 2009. When I first started blogging about every day things on a consistent basis, it was November 2009. When I first started blogging at HeathersDish.com, it was sometime in January 2010. Regardless, it’s been a year.
A full year. Man, am I getting old!
You guys have watched me go from spilling my guts about disordered eating to finally finding freedom from it, and in there being inspired to start Faces of Beauty to encourage other women to proclaim their own natural beauty.
P.S. I love pecan pie. You knew that too.
You’ve read about how much I love dark beers, especially microbrews, and how if there’s nothing like that available I’ll still grab a Guinness every time. Mmmmmm, beer…that’s normal for a morning post, right?
You’ve watched us travel all over the place, going on random surprise trips, taking goofy photos and videos all along the way. Like this one time in Estes Park when I almost died and went to heaven because they had Blue Bell ice cream. If you haven’t had Blue Bell ice cream, you haven’t lived. Yes I know that’s a bold statement, but I’m backing myself 100% on this one.
But most of all you guys have been a huge source of encouragement for me. You’ve helped me rediscover my love and passion of food, writing, and photography. You’ve helped me heal. You’ve put up with the dramatic things I say. You guys have helped make this blog what it is, and for that I (we) could not be more thankful!
Where is Heather’s Dish going in this next year? Who knows…I would love to make it more of a career someday, something that exudes creativity and fun and of course food. But in the meantime, I’m reveling in the fact that over the past year I’ve simply found that it’s all been worth it. It’s all been fun. It’s all something I look forward to every day. It’s something that brings me joy, and for that I could not be more thankful!
