My First Year Blogging--The Highlights

Wow, what a year. 
I started this blog one year ago today--January 2nd, 2011.  

I cannot believe that it has been a whole year since I started this collection of ideas, recipes, and thoughts.

I didn't really know, when I started,  if anyone would read it or if anyone really cared about my ideas and what I had to share.  I really just started it for myself.  

Well, I have been truly overwhelmed by the responses I have received from my friends and family and from all of you out there in blog land.  It has been an amazing experience for me and I am definitely looking forward to sharing more recipes, house ideas, and projects.

I thought that I would now share with you some of the highlights from the past year---

In January 
I posted a few of my favorite recipes
Risotto with Shrimp and Asparagus
