365 days later, my life has changed for the better. My passion and zeal for sharing healthier food has only grown and, most importantly, I’m no longer alone in my journey.
I have you to share it with. Anyone who’s lived with food intolerances or allergies understands this all too well.
More than anything, today I’m grateful for you.
On my belly button birthday earlier this year, my sister and niece bought me the neatest array of little dishes and plates to use in my food photos. When deciding what to get me, they knew I loved my blog and that the dishes would make my heart sing.
They were right. But they didn’t quite understand that I love my blog because of you.
I treasure each e-mail, comment, message, and tweet. (Yes, I Twitter.)
I treasure your friendship, too. If anyone told me a year ago that I’d have strong bonds with people I’ve never met face to face, I wouldn’t have believed it. But I do. You’ve changed my heart.
Other Bloggy Birthdays
Last week, one of my favorite bloggers, Kalyn, of Kalyn’s Kitchen turned five. (You can still wish her Happy Birthday!!) I was so impressed with her birthday celebration that I decided to do something similar.
My Birthday Cake
Sublime Bakery, owned and operated by Pastry Chef Catherine Ruehle, let me use a photo of one of their cakes for this post. It even matches my blog!
No, the cake isn’t gluten-free or sugar-free. Hold on…
They do bake and ship gluten-free OR sugar-free OR vegan treats. You can view their made-to-order specialty treats in their on-line store.
Also, look for Catherine to appear soon in her second Food Network Challenge. I’m wishing her the very best of luck!
Birthday Questions…I’m really celebrating you!
I want to SS&GF to be a useful resource and a warm community for my readers. Help me celebrate by answering a few questions:
- Tell me about you – what you do, if you blog, favorite cookbooks…anything goes.
- What are your biggest challenges in the kitchen?
- What do you want to see more of at SS&GF? Anything you’d rather not read about?
