Six months ago today, I started this blog. I know six months isn’t much of a milestone, but it’s been a lot of fun so far, and I’d like to take a moment to reflect. Since Thanksgiving is about being grateful for what you’ve got, I’m grateful that I have this medium to express my thoughts (no matter how inane sometimes). And I’m grateful that it’s brought me to you, dear readers.
Six months ago, I never would have suspected that people I’ve never met before would write to tell me what they have in common with me or how much they enjoyed a recipe. Occasionally, I hear from old friends who have read my blog and want to catch up. And occasionally I post pictures of my cats and get made fun of. These moments make our big world seem small and give me the motivation to keep writing. So thank you.
Six months ago, this was just an experiment. Now, it’s something I look forward to. I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. And for anyone wondering what this vegetarian is having for “Turkey Day,” I’m making vegetable lasagna and eating as much pumpkin pie and Reddi-wip as I can.
