Tomorrow people will be gathering for parties to celebrate the New Year or perhaps going to bed early. Another year is in the books and we have so much to be grateful for. I’m not one for making New Year’s Resolutions, but I am looking forward to 2017 and seeing how this blog will continue to grow. It seems most people are reviewing their past year so I feel I ought to do the same.
So what’s all happened this year?
During the beginning of this year, I was still getting used to being a momma. But let’s be real, that’s an everyday thing. Being a first time mom, I had so many questions and was still figuring out how to even communicate with my little one. Then I had to learn how to balance momma life with being a wife and having a social life. Overcoming fears of having a crying baby in a public place was something I quickly had to overcome.
In late May I began this blog and it’s been such a great experience and so much fun. It’s has definitely been a huge learning curve. Who knew all the little things that go into a blog other than just writing a simple post?! But I want to thank each one of you who follow me and read this blog. And a special thanks to all those who have encouraged me on the way! I couldn’t have done it without you!
Since then, I have learned about new foods (most of them quite tasty), new cooking techniques, food photography props, photography lighting and editing, and well…the list could really go on. Some of my favorite recipes (though I’m slightly biased because I love them all!) are: The Best Chicken Pesto Sandwich, 4 Ingredient Trail Mix, Chicken Enchiladas, and Blueberry Lemon Crumb Muffins. These recipes are also favorites of my husband so you know they have to be some of the best! Be sure to check them out if you haven’t and let me know what you think.
I’ve also had the opportunity to do a sponsored post. It was so much fun to create a Golden Caramel Cinnamon Creme Brûlée Cappuccino that was perfect for a girls’ night in.
Now you can find me either taking care of my little one, who is now walking and climbing everywhere, spending time with my little family, cooking, sitting by the computer trying to plan and think of foods I should be making for the blog, or eating. Good times seem to happen around great food. One of my goals for next year is to create good food that will create great memories for everyone who gathers around. Full bellies lead to happy hearts!
Thinking ahead for 2017…what’s to come?
Well… I’m hoping to have more recipes next year and more glimpses of momma life. I’d love to have more sponsored posts, but it takes a lot of hard work to achieve that! But here’s a small list of posts to come:
- Posting about 1 time a week.
- Adding more posts about momma life and the products that I love using.
- Creating healthier snack and desserts.
- Improving the overall quality of my food photography.
- Continuing to grow my blog as it seems fit.
That’s a wrap, friends!
If you’ve loved following this blog, please share it with someone you know! It’s more fun to share things with others. And a huge THANK YOU again to all of you who follow, read, and encourage me.
Hope you all have a wonderful New’s Years Eve and Day! Wishing you blessings and moments to cherish forever.
