Spring Fling (My Second Blogiversary)

Spring Fling

Two years ago, my blog was in its fledgling stages.  Frankly, so was I.

I had a wisp of an idea — lots of them, actually — but no clue how to bring them to fruition.

Since then, I’ve learned a thing or two.  (I’m still learning!)

Asparagus... The Early Years

Back then my heart had something to say, but I wasn’t sure how to say it — or take pictures, lol!

Still, I gave it a go.

For me, this forum wasn’t so much about cooking as connecting.

Truthfully, I never thought of myself as a “loner” until I moved to Oklahoma — not counting The Man Of Few Words living in the same household.  (It’s easy to feel alone with one so quiet.)

That wasn’t a complaint, by the way.  I thrive on the creative “space” he affords my adventures, xo, and I could have been perfectly content without ever venturing out again.

But thank you for bringing me out of my shell!

Contentment

My soul (then and now) needed a shot of exuberance.

I found it in expressing myself.  I found it in you!

And, I found it in this Bleu Cheese Bacon Compound Butter. :)

Fold together gently.  (It’s a good way to cook — AND live life.)

Serve on steak, baked potatoes, or…

“You’ve come a long way, baby!”  (Remember that?!)

Two years ago, this blog was my “baby.”  I’m content with the way it’s turned out (for now.)  And, following my songwriting stint, I’ll dream up a fabulous giveaway to acknowledge your faithful support!

In the meantime, here’s a picture of the birthday girl…

Yup… we’re both older and wiser!

Enjoying living, loving, and learning along with ya,
