blog + anniversary = blogiversary!


I am freakin' out right now in terms of this blog. Get this. Our little blog is coming up to it's ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY and we are about to hit 10,000 VIEWS! Can you believe it?? I'm so flippin' excited! When I started this blog a year ago, it was really to help me cope with living in the UK and distract me from not getting acting work. But now I'm like, "I got this y'all. I. Got. This."

What a year it's been. I'm terribly guilty of wanting to do a lot in a short span of time. It's the death bed idea. I'm on my death bed. My body's given up. My eyes are weakening. I'm surrounded by my family; my breaths are getting shorter and I'm ready to go because I have lived. I have lived. So, because I'm determined to make the most of my life, I tend to try and do a lot.

I met up with a former teacher, turned colleague, turned friend, while I was home. Politically, we will never agree, never, but I really enjoy his conversation. Anyhoo, I met up with him and he asked how my years have been living in England. I talked about studying voice again, taking the leap of faith going into the biz, my Le Cordon Bleu patisserie class, my little bit of graphic design heaven, and even this blog. You (indirect you) don't realize how much you can do in a year! It's really crazy. I'd say, if 29 is as exciting as 28, it's going to be one heckofa final year of the 20s. My 30s have a lot of impressing to do!

Ok. So, in honor of our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY, we are totally going to have cake! But not just any cake, pancake. See what I did there? (wink, wink) Look, I even made this pretty little collage for you:


Here's what John & I are asking of our wonderful readers, that's YOU! On October 26, 2013 HAVE SOME PANCAKES! (Or crepes!) It's a Saturday, so GO CRAZY. Whether you make them yourself, go out for them, or ask your loved one to make them for you (in bed of course!), will you please take a picture of them and post them to our FB page or tweet me or instagram them and include me in it? Who doesn't love taking pictures of their food?? And then I'll share them all on here! Yippee! (party dance) I'll remind you again, ok?

Woo hoo! See your pics soon!

*By the way, all of these gorgeous pics aren't mine. I wish! The photo in the header belongs to The Sweetest Occasion; the collage starting clockwise from the biggest picture belong to Inspiring the Everyday (with recipe), Cooking Channel (with recipe), Liska, Cookie+Kate (gluten-free recipe), & STYLE4design; the picture of HRH Duchess Catherine belongs to Kate Middleton Fans

Look! Even Great Britain's future Queen is excited!
