Another year is about to pass us by already? I can’t believe it either. 2015 went by in a blur for me – and it certainly had it’s ups and downs!
While a few things in my life were a bit choppy and change-y (employment, health), one constant joy throughout it all though has been this running this website. You have no idea how much pleasure and enjoyment I get out of making, photographing and sharing good, healthy food! I didn’t get to spend as much time doing my favourite hobby as I wanted this past year, but 2016 is already looking a lot more clear and open. Bring. It On!
