Hey friends! It’s so special to me that each year on my birthday from here on out, I’ll get to celebrate the anniversary of launching this little blog of ours, too. It’s a great opportunity to jump back through old posts and reflect on the happenings of the last year of life – where we went, what we experienced, how we’ve grown…
I can’t thank you enough for joining us here. While this is certainly a space for us to reflect and document our own thoughts, experiences, and interests, it’s so much more fun to be able to share it with friends. Much of what we’ve shared has sparked some great conversations with you, and I look forward to even more of that over the next year.

Whew! Lots to reflect on from the past twelve months, for sure. After digging through our post views and engagement, it looks like we definitely need to pick our Local Love series back up, consider sharing even more “off the cuff” personal posts, and maybe a few more DIY posts.
When looking at our all-time most popular entries, several of the most searched for and most read continue to be podcast and brew review focused, so trust me when I say I’m really working on Jeremy to make a comeback and start sharing on this space again. It may happen even sooner if you’re willing to bombard him with requests! ; )

Once again, and as always, thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, feedback, and kind words along the way, friends. It means more than I can express. Here’s to another year of blogging in the books, and many more to come!
