Happy 1 year, Biscuits and Such!

So one year ago today, on what was a basic WordPress blog, I started this website.  My first post was Country Style Steak with Jasmine Rice.  It was photographed horribly in an apartment I can only now associate with bed bugs (but also had bad lighting).  The steak turned out alright, but not great, and I remember wondering first if I was making the right choice, and secondly if I thought anyone in my family would find it (or worse judge me about it).

A year later I’ve gotten an incredible amount of positive feedback about this site, and I couldn’t be happier that I decided to push through.  I am excited every time I cook something for this site and I love every minute of it.  It’s given me an outlet, a hobby, a place to put my frustration, love, and energy.

I was planning a little something for the blogoversary, but I severely underestimated how exhausted I would be after the wedding. I’ve been doing nothing all week and I still feel like I’ve been hit by a very large, opinionated bus.  I promise a wedding post is coming (accompanied by one of Beaufort Grocery’s recipes), as well as some exciting news in other areas of the b&s world.  For now, I wanted to thank you all for making this site so special for me, for giving me a reason to keep doing it.
