Happy First Blog-o-versary! That’s Internet speak for beginning the venture into blogville just one year ago. Time flies when you’re having fun. I started this adventure because I wanted to write about wine. After drinking too much wine, gaining five pounds and not remembering my name for a few weeks, I decided perhaps solely wine wasn’t a good idea. It seems you all reveled in the recipes and food more than wine any way.
Let’s reflect on the past year. Shall we?
