Since I started this blog, I immediately fell in love with blogging and food photography. I already loved food (and cocktails) or I wouldn’t have started the blog in the first place. Honestly, I was at a really bad point in my life and needed to feel good about something, have a hobby and feel like I was helping someone… you know, like possibly an air-head like me who was first learning to cook.
I’ve met and connected with so many awesome people, like the great folks with Pinnacle Vodka. It didn’t take them long to recognize I was a fan, and I’ve been fortunate enough to receive all of their newest flavors.
And my friends love me for it.
Pinnacle recently sent me one of their newest flavors of vodka, Peppermint Bark.
Oh. My. Word. Great-tasting cocktails don’t necessarily have to be complicated… all I did was mix this up with a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. It was off the hook.
Back to 2013. I loved it and I hated it. I worked at a job that I really didn’t enjoy and dreaded going to work every day. I loved the people, but couldn’t satisfy my inner creative beast that was dying to cook, photograph and write about food. I finally got in the position to quit that damn job and do what I love every day, which includes this little blog of mine.
Little did I know, about the time I was starting to build this blog dream of mine, there was a really nice guy named Taylor (who also loves to cook!) that had a dream and started to build a houseboat. We met in 2013.
And we’re getting married on that houseboat when he finishes building his (our) dream. I can’t wait to travel, catch fish, cook and blog from that houseboat with my best friend one day.
Farewell, 2013. You were a year of growth and new beginnings in so many ways. Cheers.
